Dream meaning: Dog,Dogs,Puppy

Dogs and puppyDogs symbolize loyalty or fidelity, especially to your own values or intentions; therefore, your ability to go foreward in the world from a staong internal base. Dogs guard treasure, so their apperance may indicate a treasure (skill, knowledge) you have ignored forgotten that needs to be activated, or has the potention to be activated; some idea or aspect of yourself, that you need to guard more carefully. Is something happening in your waking life that you need to be on guard about or need to guard against? Is something threatening you, and you are, or need to be guarding your teriitory? Consider whether there is something in your waking life that you have diffedly pursuing, or that you are feeling hounded about. If you are a woman dreaming of pregnant dog, it may symbolize your own sexual or maternal instincts.

Dogs have a keen sense of smell to nose out matters, so they can symbolize intuition. If the dog is a pet, it may represent a need or wish for life; caring; pampering; no reseponsibilty. If wild and dangerous it suggest primitive insticts.

See animals.

    My ex boyfriend stops by my side in an old mercedes car. He gets out with his dog (though in reality he doesn’t have a dog). The dog is set loose and he comes to bite me. Even when he bites me it doesn’t hurt me. My ex boyfriend covers the dog by putting a cardboard box over it.
    I have had repetitive dreams of this particular ex-boyfriend and it has always involved animals along with him in the dreams. (horses, dogs, peacock etc.)
    Please help me with what this symbolises.

    My dream wasn’t a nightmare - more of a weird dream. I’m usually scared of pit-bulls but I dreamt that I walked into my home and a blue pit somewhat of an american bully approached, all happy and wagging it tail. I was hugging it, petting it & as I continued to walk the dog would wag it’s tail, pushing his bowl with his nose for me to feed him. He also brought his ball to play fetch. He seemed so happy and me too. In my dream I mentioned I wanted to take him for a walk at the park. All I know is that dogs in a dream mean “loyalty”?

    In my dream I took sleeping puppies one by one from the ground and put them in a basket inside the compartment of a car…

    I am seeing in my dream that a DOG is barking at me. The dog is black & there are different color dogs, too.

  • Jay // Jan 4, 2012 at 4:03 am

    I’m my dream I was confronted by a dog that was barking at me and out of nowhere I proceeded to place both my hands in his mouth. I took them out and they were intact; no blood, no scratches, and the dog was still barking at me! I just stood there without fear..

  • Carla // Jan 2, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I dreamed about an ex boyfriend. We were together, and he took his pants down to show me 3 wild dog heads growing out of his leg. After that the dream switched to another scene. This is like no other dream That I’ve experienced. I’ve had many dreams about the ex boyfriend over the years, but nothing like this.

  • Nami // Dec 5, 2011 at 7:34 am

    In my dream, which I have had twice now, I go outside and I see dog poop. I keep walking and see more. The amount and size increases as I keep walking. Before I wake up, I get so upset and frustrated because I’m thinking this mess belongs to dogs that the owners let loose and choose our yard to do their business.

  • anthony // Jul 14, 2011 at 3:53 am

    In my dream, a white dog bites my right ear. The dog couldn’t bite my ear because I was protecting my ear by my two fingers. The tooth exactly fits in to my finger nails. So he couldn’t bite me. Then he was hanging onto my body. While I was in the dream I got a call from my girl friend. I woke up and she said that my dog caught in to a vehicle and he died on the road.

  • nikita // Jun 3, 2011 at 1:23 am

    I frequently see a horrible dream in which I am surrounded by street dogs.. They are howling at me. They are angry and are taking my hands into their mouths and are licking my legs… They seem so horrible as if they will tear me apart. I am crying and I am standing still because if I try to move they bark… This dream haunts me frequently…

  • Choua // May 14, 2011 at 7:15 am

    I had a dream where the dog had so many puppies. They were countless all over the yard. I wonder what it means.

  • vanessa // May 2, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    I had a dream that I was at home sitting on the couch and suddenly I hear something trying to get through my door. I looked out the window and see a group of growling dogs trying to get in and attack me. But then I heard God say, “Just stand behind the door and hold it so they can’t come in.” Then one dog breaks the wood a little bit at the bottom of the door, trying to come and God again said to me, “Place your foot and push and they will not come in.” God kept repeating, “Just stand and hold the door to keep them out and they will not come in” and minutes after that the dogs went away.

    I was walking down a street, when I was being approached by a stray dog. I wasn’t afraid, (which in my waking life I normally would be) and the dog started following me. I was running and laughing with it and quickly learned that the dog had six legs! I was freaked out even more for the dog was also pregnant!

  • elisa // Mar 28, 2011 at 7:19 am

    In my dream I am on a college campus, in a room/dorm, and there is a space in a wardrobe where I can see a crawlspace and there is a hole in a pipe and I see an eye in the pipe. It’s a dog, that lives in the walls, and it’s in horrible condition. I coax it out and 4 more that live in the walls besides. All different types and personalities. I’ve had dreams about dogs living in walls, like rats, before.

    In my dream, I was walking down the street and I saw three German Shepherds. So beautifully groomed. They saw me and came to me right away, but very calm. I grabbed one of them by the collar and we started walking. The the other two followed us. The strange thing is that I have a German shepherd at home but it wasn’t him.

  • Vimal // Nov 16, 2010 at 4:25 am

  • Patrick // Sep 26, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    In my nightmare lastnight, i was walking home from a friends house and as i was walking, futher down the dark street i noticed a big black doberman pinscher. For a minute it was just staring at me, and growling, and then out of nowhere it just attacked me.

  • Gan // Sep 11, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    The night before my dream about a loving puppy, I practiced a new skill. After seeing my success with this skill, I reasoned that I would maintain it no matter what anyone else thought. Because of this, I can understand how the dream interpreter says puppies or dogs can denote loyalty to a part of your inner self.

  • Itzel // Jun 13, 2010 at 9:46 am

    In my dream I was in a cave and I was taken to a dark part, there were hundreds of puppies they all jumped on me and licked me and just wanted to play with me… I was startled at first, but after a while I really was enjoying all the attention, they were all boxer puppies which is my favorite kind of dog, they were all brown.

  • laura // May 13, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    In my dream I was sleeping and my puppy that died in 2006 was just jumping all over me, trying to wake me up and licking me. It felt real and I was happy to see him and have him again in my arms.

    In my dream, my dog’s ear fell off and then he turned into a cat. I was really worried because he was limping and ready for death.

    In my dream. I dreamed about about all 3 of my beloved pets I had in the past. I dreamed about all 3 pets in the order I had them. It was a very pleasant dream, as I missed and loved them dearly.

  • dion // Jan 6, 2010 at 3:23 am

    i was driving down the street and a small injured dog leaned into the drivers side of my vehicle. I tried to shooo him away. but each time i pushed him away or sped up . . . he would follow and lean into the drivers side of my car. Eventually he “said”, indicated, or motioned that he had a head injury . . . and i stopped to car for him.

  • Marci // Aug 30, 2009 at 9:02 am

    In my dream there were 4 big black rats (about as big and fluffy as cats) in my kitchen. I stood with a broom, pushing at them and trying to get my dog (also black and fluffy, like a black golden retriever) to get them. I kept saying “get’em, Isaac! Get’em!” and he would just wander around and look at them curiously. One wandered in from outside and crawled up into my fridge and I opened the door all the way and pushed it out with the broom. I tried pushing another one from under the table and called for isaac to come to help me and then I woke up.

    Hehehehe, reading here, am I chasing wealth (the rats) and it is elusive (my dog not helping me?)

  • Shanel // May 19, 2009 at 8:53 am

    In my dream my neighbor’s dog got into my house and bit my hand, and would not let me go. I even told her about her dog and she did nothing. when he finally let go I had a big hole in my hand between my fingers. The bite never hurt me though.

  • Taryn // Mar 23, 2009 at 11:41 am

    In the dream I just had, it was a police dog being let lose to catch or attack two people that were fighting very vigorously. I was an innocent bystander and the dog misses the two men fighting and launches itself to my thigh. The most frigtening thing was that I was walking with my boyfriend and I was the one attacked and no one would do anything and the dog remained attached to my leg. I was screaming in pain.

  • Candice // Feb 12, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    In my dreams the only dog i see is my pet. Usually its me trying to protect her from something.

  • Douglas // Jan 21, 2009 at 1:59 pm

    There was a purplish-blue glowing dog that came over and laid down with me so I could sleep

  • rajen // Jan 17, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    In my dream I was being chased by a chase dog. After that it bit my hand, it was quite a frightening dream.

  • Salinda // Aug 28, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    In my dream I saw a big Alsatian dog put its front legs on my shoulders from behind and talking to me. But I can’t remember what it said. I just want to know the meaning of this dream.

  • anisa // Aug 9, 2008 at 1:50 pm

    In my dream I’m being chased by this huge guard dog that belongs to my uncle. He’s running after me in my neighborhood. I run through backyards, hide behind doors and the dog still figures out where I am. In the end after jumping over a wall I finally get to my own back yard. And there I see two double doors locked that lead into my house. I looked over the double doors though, and I see a horizontal open space wide enough for me to get in. I jump inside and I make it, but then I walk to my front door and I see my family members outside with the dog. They come in the house and the dog remains outside. I’m yelling at them and telling them they should have that dog killed and that it is no good . Then I wake up.
