Dogs are the most loyal creatures, not without reason, hearing the phrase “my four-legged friend” just this animal immediately appears before his eyes. They have been living side by side with a man for more than a millennium, helping him in everything. But why can a dog dream of having entered a dream, is it always a good sign, or can it be a warning?
One dog or a whole pack
In most cases, the dog in a dream is a positive character, but not always. Much depends on the interpretation and related factors.
For example, a whole flock of dogs symbolize many problems, troubles and experiences that concern a person in real life. This dream warns of anticipated obstacles and dubious friends waiting for a person to make a mistake.
If the dogs are disposed towards the person benevolently, they flatter themselves and allow themselves to be stroked, then the dream radically changes its meaning. In this case, you can count not only on your own strengths, but also on the luck that will accompany all undertakings. This dream portends that the time has come for the most daring changes to change the field of activity or the organization of your business.
Naturally, the behavior of dogs in a dream is of great importance. If a flock of animals is friendly with each other, plays and frolics, then this is a sure sign that fruitful cooperation and a successful outcome of the planned affairs are expected in human life.
If the dogs are belligerent, they fight, figuring out a relationship between themselves, then the person sleeping in life will have a discord with friends or colleagues, which will not be easy to forget. This is a dream warning, after which you need to be more careful in statements or actions so as not to become the culprit of the quarrel.
In addition to the number of pets, the interpretation of sleep also depends on which particular dog had a dream.
As in life, in a dream, many associations of a person at the sight of a dog depend on its appearance. A big dog can cause fear, and a tiny puppy - tenderness. What animal parameters should be considered when interpreting sleep?
Why dream big or small dog
An animal of impressive size suggests that a person has good relationships with friends based on trust. But if the dog inspires the sleeping man with horror, then it means that in life he is afraid of his comrades. And this does not allow you to fully open in front of friends, to fully trust.
There are several interpretations of dreams, where the big dog appears:
- symbolizes reliability, success and prosperity - a large dog can become a protector against any kind of threat;
- sleep means that any troubles will lose their significance, become less important;
- a large dog may mean that an influential and powerful patron will appear in human life.
Small dogs most often mean small but enjoyable chores. Perhaps the family will celebrate an important date, the birth of a baby, or a wedding is expected. Of course, preparing, choosing gifts, organizing a celebration is a troublesome business, but at the same time enjoyable.
These same dogs warn that soon they will have to take care not only of their life priorities, but also to wonder if others agree with this statement of affairs.
Small dogs can represent younger relatives or companions who need patronage.
Dreaming of a white, black, ginger dog
The coat color of the dreaming dog allows different interpretations of sleep. So what can a dog of one color or another dream about:
- Wool in black is a warning of a meeting with an enemy. Sometimes this dream suggests that someone in the environment has a malicious intent, or the dreamer himself has lost faith in loved ones. In this case, a frank conversation with friends helps.
- The white coat is a messenger that a meeting with old good friends will take place soon, and the old relationship will quickly be restored. Also, a white dog can be a symbol of changes in life for the better.
- The red dog is a sign of insidiousness on the part of supposedly allies. This means that the environment is dishonest towards you, or they are plotting. If a dog with such hair was dreamed of by a man, then there is a chance of an unclean colleague.
- The gray coat of a dog means that in difficult times all loved ones will turn away. The risk is great that the best friend will be on the other side of the barricades in the conflict.
- A brown dog is a distrust on the part of an old acquaintance, which the sleeping person will have to dispel.
Dog of a certain breed
Quite often a purebred animal appears in people's dreams. In itself, a dream speaks of a person’s desire to be in a company, achieve promotion at work, and find an influential patron. And the dog, as it were, suggests that friends help the goal.
What is the significance of this or that breed of four-legged friends:
