Virgo Dog Horoscope (August 23 – September 22): Perfect Dog Citizens

Virgo dogs can be a joy to own, if you are the consistent type. They like stability and routine and get anxious if that's denied them. While calm on the surface, if they feel threatened, intimidated, or just discombobulated, they get anxious and it upsets their fragile tummy. Most Virgo owners say their dogs are easy going and have the happiest, tail-waggiest companion nearly all of the time. Because of this, Virgo pups can be very sought after by those searching for a perfect match. 


Virgo dogs are one of the better-behaved signs of the dog stars. And for companionship, there is no better sign. They are intelligent, full of energy, and even-tempered. They pride themselves on their cleanliness, groom themselves frequently, and are rarely in a bad mood. It should come as no surprise that Virgo dogs are exemplary companions and are the “star students” at doggie daycare. They do not need a lot of attention and would never stoop to making confetti out of the newspaper or gnawing through USB cables just to get a response out of you. They have too much dignity for that. 

But, do not be fooled by their calm demeanor. Virgo dogs always enjoy a challenge and want to exercise their bodies and minds regularly. If you own a Virgo dog, it’s important not to mistake their always-proper behavior for laziness. Schedule time during the day to take your Virgo for a quick stroll around the block or allow them to stretch their legs at the dog park. If you have the benefit of a fenced-in backyard, try keeping them busy with a fun game of fetch or even hide and seek!  


Ruled by Mercury, the sign of communication, Virgo pooches would rather "talk" to you than create a scene, carrying on their dog-speak to make you understand their needs. They tend to look deeply into your eyes, their expression insightful and wise, making you believe they know what you're thinking. 

Virgo dog owners already know this unspoken communication comes through loud and clear when it comes to mealtime. Your pup will always find a way to let you know it’s time for breakfast during those busy mornings! And when your Virgo companion is craving a treat, you can bet they will find a way to ensure they get one. If you’re searching for the ideal treat to give your Virgo dog, we recommend the Milk-Bone® GnawBones With Chicken treats. These long-lasting treats are great for keeping your dog busy and cleaning their teeth. A win-win!  


If you fall ill, a Virgo dog won't leave your side, keeping you company through the worst of it and proving they understand how important that mind-body connection is for healing. They are kind to their animal siblings and like nothing better than having everything in order – from the pecking order of the household, to where the leashes are stored, to their food bowls. Virgos get along best with other organized types, like Capricorns and Taurus, but often make a soul connection with a Pisces owner. 

When you’re deciding whether or not to give your Virgo dog a sibling, make sure to do your research. It’s likely your adorable dog is going to get along best with either another Virgo dog or a Cancer pup. Because of their calm and caring demeanors, these signs will keep your dog grounded. Plus, both another Virgo and Cancer pup will love having routine and stability in their lives.

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.
