HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEO!
THIS MONTH FOR LEO ( July 23-August 22) The Lion(ess)-is a fire sign that is fearless, energetic and demanding. So it’s up to you, the pet parent, to give your pooch more spontaneous fun, especially this summer. Your tail-wagger is also an attention-getter, and enjoys the limelight. And Leos, like their symbol, the lion, may be impatient for your time and treats – but with a Top Dog guardian they can learn to chill. Your Leo dog is most likely a people and pet creature, social and outgoing. And note, Leo go dogs require a strong leader to follow and respect.
Grr-eat matches: Best owners and pets for the Leo dog are other action-oriented fire signs (Aries and Sagittarius), and adventurous Aquarius, your canine’s opposite sign is a perfect pairing–pposites attract.
YOUR MONTHS AHEAD:
Relationships: Leo canines are more restless this month during the Full Moon on the 10th and they may crave more attention… A fellow dog or cat in your household or maybe a canine-pal of one of your friends or a family member will either make or break a bond. Go with the flow and let the tie either strengthen the pet-pet bond or diminish. Either way it will be okay for your social critter and you and life will go on.
Well-Being: Summer demands could put stress on your dog, but it’ll tune out obstacles. True, you may feel like your pet is facing some challenge, whether it is pesky tourists or Labor Day Weekend fireworks-but you both will survive. In fact, by coping with seasonal novelty your dog will be more adaptable and an even a better-rounded canine ready to face autumn.
Highlights: Speaking of novelty, this is the month your best friend may get in a situation outside of its comfort zone. However, under proper supervision you may be surprised that you canine will adjust and do just fine. Remember to chill and be assertive–a good pack leader earns a good dog. This is the month that can enhance your Leo canine-human bond.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Virgo, known as The Virgin, is an Earth sign-shy, aloof and finicky-which may nudge your perfectionistic canine to face imperfection as it copes with summer changes, whether it’s experiencing new people or places, thunderstorms or heat.
Relationships: This month, Virgo pups will have more energy than normal thanks to planets. No reason to be shocked, in fact, your pooch may be more social. That means, more interaction with pets and people. Take advantage of hot August days and nights and take the dog with you on weekend getaways, daily walks, and dog parks. Be on top of the new, improved Virgo pooch, though, since your four-legger may be acting out of its comfort zone.
Well-Being: Health and behavioral issues shouldn’t be a big issue this month. However, since Virgo canines can be reserved with nervous energy pay attention to summer woes, including fleas and ticks. Keep up on grooming (nails and teeth), especially during the New Moon on the 25th. Also, if you are pondering kenneling your dog because of a no dogs allowed trip, pick the perfect place for your persnickety pet.
Highlights: Brace yourself dog people. This month Virgo canines may be a candidate for some sort of makeover before fall. Perhaps, a new lead and collar or trip to the dog groomer is in the cards as a pre-birthday gift. Anything that is new may give your best friend a boost in spirit and image.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Welcome to one of your best months of the years for the Libra canine-a balanced, easygoing and people-friendly air sign because you’re both headed toward bliss outdoors and there’s a heady side of its temperament that’s going to be nourished indoors.
Relationships: This is the month for your dog to be a social magnet. Psst! Libran dog guardians, your pet is going to be in the limelight! This pooch’s harmony-loving vibe may stay on even keel because of the extra attention it gets thanks to the Full Moon before, during or after August 10. A special dog person (from the past or present) may enter your life and that means you dog will be part of the action. Or not. Make sure your Libra tyke isn’t ignored.
Well-Being: This is the month to make sure you give pampering and love to the Libran canine. Due to a combination of planets, this month may be busier than most for the sensitive, mellow dog-so remember to give your dog constant R&R. While the great outdoors is an escape for the Libra dog, indoor stimulation will also keep your pet balanced mind, body and spirit.
Highlights: Libran canines can expect some new beginnings this month that will carry over into next month. Being a little more self-reliant due to its family’s hectic schedule could be a good or bad thing. It all depends on how you handle it. If you give your canine toys combined with a comfy atmosphere when you’re AWOL, everything should be perfect as a fussy Lib dog likes it.

Well-Being: Sometimes, when difficult change occurs for Scorpion canines they have a difficult time losing the stable environment they knew best. Be on the watch for sulking or acting out because the Scorpy dog may be sensing the kids going back to school or maybe a favorite human in the household is leaving-and yes, Scorpio can use its intuitive powers sensing the end is coming.
Highlights: Before September arrives will figure out how to deal with your Scorpio dog’s feelings of being a little “off” and make things feel more on. Translation: Extra affirmations, watching dog-related films, and walks in nature can help calm your sensitive pet as summer edges into pre-autumn. Go ahead-give your all and before you know it that water sign dog of yours will be sweet once again.

Relationships: Chat It Up. This is the month for you to voice your feelings to your dog and get a response. It may take a while for your Capricorn canine to open up but it’s certainly possible. Thanks to a number of planets in Leo, passion may soar between you two or even a pet in your home will give in and Cappie will come out of its protective shell. If you scrutinize your dog, you may be pleasantly surprised this month before it’s over and have a more loving pet to love.

Thanks to the universe will be kind to touch-feely Pisces-a water sign noted for devotion, intuitive and a sweet temperament-and promises only a few bumps, but overall smooth sailing without too much turbulence.
Relationships: Find affection or let it go. Thanks to a myriad of planets this month, you’ll help your Pisces dog solve domestic issues.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
This is an awesome time for adaptable, adventurous and bold Aries (The Ram) to welcome novelty. It is the month unfolds good times for you and your fire sign canine. You have to be patient with this independent and fearless canine.
Relationships: Watch your dog. While Aries pooches, all sizes and breeds, can deal with change, Ram canines do have likes and dislikes. That’s where you come in. This month be more observant than usual to keep the peace. Aries doesn’t like being told what to do but they will compromise or give in if you use a gentle hand and lead it to what you feel will be the best for everyone.
Well-Being: Fire sign animals, like Aries, are action-oriented. While this trait is a good thing it can lead to spontaneous actions that can end up badly. So it’s your job to keep a close eye on your Ram dog so it does not take charge and do something out of impulse. Your fur child needs supervision to avoid any mishaps. Just be a little more on the ball as days pass this month and you two will be just fine.
Highlights: The good news is, by the month’s end, your Aries dog may end up getting more fun time than usual, thanks to you. Both of you will benefit from physical activity outdoors. So enjoy! Doing things together-or with other dogs-will enhance your dog-human bond as well as be a good thing for your dog’s health. This fire sign loves activity but once it gets its fix chilling indoors with you is no problem.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Change is in the air for your Taurus pooch, an Earth sign with traits of patience, poise and strong will. You’ll endure its ups and downs, ending up psyched while achieving accomplishments. Taurean dogs do have a temper and can be stubborn!
Relationships: Your Taurean dog has been working over-time to keep you feeling grounded. This month it’s time to let the earthy canine to relax for doing a good job. Why not take a dog-friendly vacation to show your loyal four-legger some gratitude. That good friend of yours deserves a good time for being there for you 24/7, especially during July’s fireworks celebration that can wreak havoc on its nerves as well as yours.
Well-Being: Speaking of your dog’s emotional state, has it been over-indulging due to festivities this summer? Have you been giving Rover too many human treats? If so, taper so your pooch can get and stay fit and trim as we finish up summertime. Not only will it keep your Bull dog healthier but it will be happier and more energetic, too. So, during Labor Day Weekend, no extra treats-just praise and play!
Highlights: During August, your dog may attract attention from your friends or strangers. While Taurean canines can be a bit reserved, if it does something wonderful (a trick or athletic feat), let your dog perform. Not only will you feel proud but your dog will know it did well and this will boost its day, month, and year! Of course, you want your canine to feel appreciated and allowing it to do its best will be worth it.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
It’s the ideal time to help balance your Gemini dog-key for air signs, like this one, who are agile, restless and fickle. The outcome: It will feel centered and glean good things from the universe before month’s end.
Relationships: Gemini canines are very resilient and can be very social with other dogs and people. Last month didn’t bother its temperament because air signs can cope okay with change in the air. However, sometimes, these heady dogs do need some quiet time. Gemini pooches like to watch movies with dogs and enjoy time with mentally stimulating toys or even the challenge of chewing a good dental-friendly bone.
Well-Being: While the Gemini dog is vocal (yes, they can and do bark or whine, sometimes during the New and Full Moon periods) for attention or to alert you to something. It takes an observant pet owner to troubleshoot potential health issues, too. If your pup is young or a senior it’s a good month to do a hands-on check from head to paw to see if all is good. Also, a vet check-up is a good thing if you haven’t gone for a while. A healthy body and healthy mind is key to any dog’s happiness, including Gemini canines.
Highlights: Extra attention during this month, especially during Labor Day Weekend celebrations for you dog will prove beneficial for both of you. Some sort of change may affect your dog because of you indirectly. So, as your canine goes with the flow, it may be a cue to do the same. Whether you bring a new person or pet into the home, relocate, or go on a trip, don’t worry, your pet has it covered and will stay balanced if you give it extra attention.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
Last month was for The Crab dog-a water sign who’s a homebody, loyal and can sulk if it doesn’t get its way. It’s important for dog owners of this sun sign to be extra sensitive to their pet’s feelings-to hang loose when novelty happens.
Relationships: The fact is, during August lunar cycles life may be a shaky for your canine. Water sign pooches need to feel secure and safe. The planets may be a bit challenging so it’s time for you to be strong for you dog and it will thank you more than you know in the future. Cancer canines do not take loyalty or love lightly so you will not be forgotten. It’s your turn to be a constant.
Well-Being: It may be no surprise to you, but your cancer canine may be super sensitive and intuitive. That means when any stress occurs it can soak it up like a sponge. Summer is full of stressors, including heat waves, power outages, thunderstorms, and fireworks. It’s up to you, the pet owner to be grounded. You can do this and for your Moon Dog. Be in tune to any anxiety your pet shows and if need be a vet visit may be in order, especially during Labor Day Weekend.
Highlights: Note: This month may be a turning point for your dog. Think bonding. During chaos caused by events beyond your control your canine may turn to a canine pal and bond or even to a centered feline. Better yet, you and your dog may get closer as you experience challenges and share unconditional love. Get ready to give and will receive love in the upcoming fall season.
