Scorpio Dog Horoscope (October 24 – November 21): Keeper of Canine Secrets

If you're looking for an outwardly affectionate pet, you might have to look elsewhere. Until their humans win their trust, Scorpio dogs can be a little aloof and distant. But once they let you into their lives and hearts, they love passionately and fiercely. We’re talking lots of cuddles and snuggles! There is no sign that feels more deeply or is as loyal. Choosing a Scorpio pup means truly having a companion for life. Scorpios are also alluring to other signs and are outrageous flirts, so don't be surprised if they have their own canine fan club. 


Ruled by Pluto, a Scorpio dog personality  can be a little excitable. Scorpio dogs are concerned with safety and will go to great lengths to secure it. They are very attuned to any threat, and since they're naturally suspicious, it's no surprise that they make excellent guard dogs. In addition to being considered a good guard dog, your Scorpio dog is likely a bit of a nosey neighbor and enjoys watching the street from his favorite window. If there’s any dog who would love being a part of the Neighborhood Watch, it’s likely a Scorpio. Human Scorpios often find themselves in law enforcement and make particularly good detectives. The same is true for their canine counterparts. This sign governs secrets and probably has everything to do with why these natives tend to make superb trackers and sniffer dogs. 


Attuned to their human's moods and emotions, a Scorpio dog will not leave your side if they believe you to be upset, ill, or just unhappy. They are silent witnesses and good listeners, with big soulful eyes that seem to understand everything that is said to them. If you own a Scorpio dog, you likely already know that they enjoy following you anywhere and everywhere. A Scorpio pup is always close by if you’re at home for the day and will find true enjoyment just tagging along if you have any errands to run.  

However, beware of leaving your Scorpio pup home alone. For some dogs, being left at home can make them stressed out and a bit jealous that they were not invited to come along for the fun. If your Scorpio companion is feeling this way, you may find they can get into trouble when left alone. Scorpio owners have come home to find toys shredded, shoes chewed up and more if their furry friend is feeling left out. A good solution for this is leaving your Scorpio dog with lots of safe options for play when you’re out and about. We recommend trying: 

  • Automatic fetch toys 

  • Tough toys for heavy chewers 

  • Hidden treat toys 


Scorpios are sensualists. They enjoy sleeping and like their food. In their later years they could gain a little too much weight around their middle, so make sure you institute an exercise regime early on. To help combat your Scorpio’s appetite we recommend choosing lower- calorie treats that are still tasty as ever. The Milk-Bone® Flavor Snacks® Mini's Flavor Snacks for Dogs of All Sizes may be small in size, but they are big on flavor. At only 5 calories per treat, this is a wonderful compromise for Scorpio pups who won’t want to give up their yummy snacks when they age.  The best human parents for a Scorpio dog zodiac sign are Cancers and other Scorpios, but they are probably too fierce for an emotional Pisces.

Now you know which dog zodiac sign aligns with your canine companion. That means you can use your new astrological knowledge for some serious bonding! For example, if you have an Aries dog in your household, you can appeal to their energetic spirit by getting them out of the house more often – take them on challenging hikes or let them roughhouse at the dog park. Or, if you have a food-loving Cancer or Taurus dog, you can mix up their treat flavors and textures to make their tummies happy (just keep treating under 10% of their daily caloric intake to ensure they don’t get too thick around the middle).

But who are we kidding – no matter your dog’s sign, they all deserve tasty treats! And they all love eating them, too. You don’t need to chart the stars to figure that one out! Check out all the awesome treats the Milk-Bone® brand has to offer.
