So your dog is a Gemini, represented by the twins. Many people read this sign’s duality as being two-faced, giving Gemini dogs a bad rap. And sure there are some (maybe a bit more than a few) of Geminis who fit this description, but it’s more often than not completely unfair.
A Gemini dog is emotionally versatile and can present many different, seemingly contradictory thoughts or actions within the same day. That’s because Geminis are a mutable sign and are subject to their own whims and the environment they inhabit. Gemini dogs are natural communicators, which can sometimes come across as polished and salesdog-like. They absorb information like a sponge and can spit it back out like the witty creatures they are. When it comes to barking, your Gemini dog has it covered. No communication problems here!
Gemini Dates: May 21 to June 20
Symbol: The Twins

At their best, Gemini dogs are the life of the party, barking and howling at literally anyone or anything that crosses their paths. They’re curious and love learning, taking to puzzles and games that stimulate the mind (and, of course, end in treats). They’re overall gentle souls who often get a bad rap because they’re constantly thinking and that thinking often translates to change of opinion or heart. It’s hard for Gemini dogs (or any dogs) to be witty in the traditional sense, but if you could speak or understand dog, you would know they’re funny. They probably already make you laugh with their regular antics and unpredictable bursts of energy.
At their worst, Gemini dogs can shut down when presented with boredom or any version of a tired, staid routine. You can wake up to one dog in the morning and go to sleep with a completely different personality at night. Their inconsistent natures can be a source of excitement, but they can also be exhausting. It’s hard to judge the right way to interact with a Gemini dog in any given moment and that’s why it’s important to read their cues. Just because they liked being held two hours ago doesn’t mean they want to be picked up right now. Gemini dogs like to have their noses in other people’s business… and often that business is food. They also happen to enjoy a good gossip session, so be careful about what secrets you spill.
As Air signs, Gemini dogs express themselves supremely well (almost too well) and they are most as ease when they’re controlling the conversation. For a dog that means being the center of attention. When Gemini dogs bark, they want you to listen. Gemini dogs like to entertain, but they equally like to be entertained. They enjoy new experiences and seeing different scenery, so they respond well to walks (and they love meeting new doggie friends on those walks). They enjoy mental stimulation in many forms — really anything to avoid being bored. Switch up their routine as much as possible and you’ll live a better, easier life with your Gemini pup.
While many signs can think of nothing better than a solitary, quiet evening at home, Gemini dogs abhor the thought. Conversation is their lifeblood and they need other dogs, humans, or anyone really to bounce back and forth with. Gemini dogs don’t like doing the same things over and over again and value novel things. They embrace change as it breaks the routine and rise to meet it. They don’t like feeling confined and particularly don’t like being kept in a small apartment with no one to howl at all day. That’s why you should let your Gemini dog spread their wings as much as you possibly can.
