Dreams Are A Doorway To The Soul
Dogs symbolize many different things to many different people. As a guide, think of the feelings that you feel when you see a dog. Your dream can be exploring territory issues, feeling panicked or attacked, qualities within yourself that are like a dog (ex. fierceness, loyalty, and protection), or something in your life that causes fear.
What kind of dog is it?
What characteristics do you equate with that type of dog?
Is the dog attacking you?
Are you fearful of the dog?
Where in your life do you feel attacked?
Envision yourself as the dog, is the dog doing anything that you would do in real life?
Is the dog portraying issues with boundaries?
Is the dog friendly?
Is the dog being neglected? (There could be a natural instinct that you are neglecting).
What feelings does the dog bring up for you?
Have you felt those same feelings in your life recently?
The most important thing to remember when decoding any dream symbol is how you feel about that symbol. Take a few moments to describe how you feel about dogs in general. To some, they symbolize man’s best friend. To others, they evoke a feeling of terror or uneasiness.
