The sign of the Dog emphasizes the importance of the self in those who are born under its sign. They are intelligent people who hold much of their thought process deep inside, and they are not always known for being able to share these thoughts freely with others. Part of this means that those born under the sign of the Dog live very rich inner lives, emphasizing the more personal aspects of basic human life. They get lost in thought often, appreciate the options that they encounter every single day, and can often entertain themselves for hours on end with puzzles and other brain teasers.
Part of the strong inner lifestyle of the Dog, however, is a relatively restrained outer lifestyle. More apt to live a serious and careful existence, a Dog is someone who will get the job done but rarely go beyond the scope of what it asked of them. This is because to them, there are more important things to do than spending their time trying to impress others, and they would rather enjoy what they choose to do than sacrifice their freedom for a little monetary gain. Thus, a Dog is a person in charge of their own path, who while they will encounter resistance from time to time will generally hold true to the morals and the lifestyle that seems best to them.
As a person who understands the importance of their own emotions, the Dog often needs time to adjust to the needs and ways of another person in their life. For while they can ultimately live in peace and harmony with another, the process is a series of back and forth compromises. A person born under the sign of the Dog will do best, as a result, with someone who will not ignore their needs and who is willing to compromise on the way that the relationship works. So while there may be some who are not able to provide the Dog with the time and compassion they need to develop a passionate relationship, there are many who can and a Dog should always try to persevere.
As an inward focused being, the Dog may take a while to adjust to the social cues and requirements of conversation and interpersonal relationships. One must look past some of the more surface items and try to identify the important ideas that lie within a person. For a Dog will rarely gain much satisfaction from simple conversation, but would rather entertain deeper problems. Should they manage to engage another person in discussions of this sort then, they will feel quite fulfilled and will often impress the other with their opinions and views. Should they not, however, then they will often end the conversation with a vague sense of a missed opportunity or an unrewarded effort.
As they are someone for whom problems and puzzles hold a strong attraction, those born under the sign of the Dog tend to thrive in the more mathematical or specialized fields. Craftsmen, engineers, and others paths that require work with their hands and mind at the same time will take full advantage of Dog's capabilities. As someone with a natural inclination to focus on one thing at a time, however, the Dog can sometimes lose track of their financial situation in favor of other interests. Luckily, this is something that they can resolve with a little resolution, as long as the make a point to look after their finances more regularly.
