Dogs are often our best friends and companions. They are faitful friends and we give them a lot of our attention when we have them as pets. Even if we don’t have dogs as pets we encounter them on daily basis and it is not unusual to dream from once in a while about them.
We will explain a little bit more about dogs and their symbolic meaning in our dreams.
Dream about a dog in general
Dream about a dog symbolizes your intuition and loyalty. You are someone who has good intentions, that you present to the world, and this will definitely bring you success in life. This dream can also represent another person in your life that has these qualities and whom you respect very much.
This dream can also represent some skills you forgotten about and this is your biggest mistake. Sometimes our consciousness warns us about the things that we forget about and things we should value a little bit more.
Dream about a dog bite
If you had a dream about your dog biting you at the legs, then this suggest that you have lost the ability to establish balance in your life. You may be hesitant in approaching a new situation, or you do not have a strong desire to move forward to achieve your goals.
This dream also symbolizes infidelity you can experience from your partner. Be careful around your partner and make sure you turn on your instincts to see any “red flags” in your partner’s behavior.
Dream about a dog barking
If you saw a happy dog barking in your dream, it symbolizes good social relations and a lot of social activity. You will probably be invited to an interesting and very important event that will bring you a lot of new social contacts that will be valuable to you.
If the dog in your dream barks fiercely, then it represents your habit of making demands and control of the situation around you. You are a very controlling person and you know how things should look and how others should act. This can be very overbearing to others and you will often be described as a very demanding person.
This dream could indicate a negative environment around you. Perhaps certain people around you are making trouble in your life and you feel like there is no way to run away from them. You should either tell them how you feel or simply distance yourself from them.
This dream can also means that you are annoying to those around you, so please pay attention to irritability and annoying behavior you are projecting to others. You shouldn’t be too aggressive in your approach because no one likes to be told what to do. Alternatively, barking refers to the unfortunate and disgruntled friend or colleague.
Dream about a dead dog
If the dog is dead or dying, then it means you have lost a good friend or decrease of your instincts. You should also pay attention to certain phrases people use when they talk about dogs, such as loyalty (“man’s best friend”) because they will give you a better outlook on this dream. Perhaps you don’t feel appreciated by others and hurt by their actions.
To dream about a dead dog or dying dog means you haven’t been taking care of an old skill or talent. It also means that you have to spend more time and effort to nurture a friendship with someone close to you. If in your dream the dog has puppies, then this refers to your abilities in life.
Dream about buying a dog
If you had a dream about buying a dog, then this dream indicates your tendency to buy your friends or compliments, and receiving services in life. This dream indicates your need to find companionship that is true and genuine. These friendships that are based on interests can’t last long and you will eventually need someone who is going to be there for you whatever happens.
If in a dream you are leading a dog, then it suggests that you are having difficulty in going through some situations or issues in your life. Perhaps you have lost your compass in life and you are trying to find a way back to the “right path”. Go back to what makes you happy and enjoy life a little bit more.
Dream about giving away or chasing your dog
If you had a dream about giving your dog to someone or chasing him away, then this means you will probably betray someone with your actions and words. You have to do what’s right for you and not worry about what others think about the decision. Even if it seems like a bad idea in someone else’s head, this will be the right choice for you.
This can also mean rejection you will experience, from a close friend. Your old friend might suddenly feel the need for some space and you will definitely be hurt by his or hers decision. Keep in mind that everybody has to do what feels right to them, and eventually it might be better for you as well.
To run over a dog in a dream means that you have doubts about your close friend or relative. Maybe you feel betrayed by someone or you feel like they are not being completely honest about their intentions. Talk to them and resolve any issues that are bothering.
Dream about a dog attacking you
Dream about a dog attacking you warns that someone for whom you thought was your friend is trying to use you for something. They presented themselves as loyal and friendly, but they are definitely what they seem to be.

Dream about dressing a dog
If you dream about dressing a dog then this dream signifies your attempts to cover up your own flaws in your character and habits. You feel insecure about yourself and this makes you want to cover up those insecurities.
Remember that everyone has something they don’t like about themselves but they learn how to love their flaws and embrace them. Work on your issues and live your life to the fullest.
Dream about a dog chasing its tail
If you saw a dog chasing its tail or running around in circles in a dream, then this means that you do not handle things very well. You are spending too much time on meaningless work and you forget to focus on the important things.

You see everything that is happening around you and you are very active when it comes to preventing bad things from happening.

Dream about a black dog
