The personality of the Dog-year people

Based on the horoscope, the feng shui researchers found the general character traits of the people born in the Year of the dog as below:

Straightforwardness, honesty, and kindness are remarkable characteristics of people born in the Year of the Dog. Most of them don’t lose themselves because of money and status. They are very cautious in making decisions in their work to bring the best interests of the team.

The Dog-year people often help others, seeing people in need they will support, so they are sometimes misunderstood as interfering busybodies. It is very wonderful when the Year of the Dogs are not in a hurry to judge others, not in a hurry to raise their voice. They have a very delicate and intelligent way of solving work.

However, because of loyalty and not wanting to dishonor, every time they accept to help someone, the Year of the Dog people often need time to think, not to consider their benefits, but to learn the truth whether the person needs help and whether they can help complete it or not.

Listening to other people’s feelings is a characteristic of the Dog ages. They will be a place to confide in many people and can give a lot of good advice because they have a delicate eye for life. Therefore, they are loved by the others around them.

However, although the Year of the dog may have good advice for others, they have a weakness that makes it difficult to change their mind, and rarely listen to advice from others. This point sometimes makes them conservative to hold their opinions despite right or wrong. This also more or less hinders their development because many good business and cooperation opportunities can be missed.

People in the Year of the Dog often leave the family early to pursue their dreams and ambitions. Self-reliance is very high at these ages, they mature early thanks to careful observation of all aspects of life, so their thinking is also more mature than those of the same age.

At work, the people born in the Year of the Dog work enthusiastically, have high concentration, and complete the assigned tasks well. They will often be classified as outstanding employees. However, impatience can happen with colleagues, this impulsiveness is sometimes a big obstacle in the career path. So, restrain yourself to be better developed.

Family and honor are two things that cannot be separated from the life of people born in the Dog Year. They value family and honor even more than money and position in society. They spend time and energy protecting their family and loved ones. Therefore, family and friends are an extremely important foundation for the Year of the Dog to stay firmly on the path of life, especially during difficult times.
