  2. I dreamed the other night that I was in the back of a vehicle of some kind, and a mid-sized to larger black dog (? – might have been wolf or coyote?) also followed us into the vehicle. All was fine as it entered, no fear from anyone. Then very suddenly it lashed out and bit a huge chunk out of my skull (no pain), and my immediate thought was that I would be dead in just a second or two – and that made me happy and relieved. Then I woke up. What on earth would that mean?

    • Someone is betraying you but you cant prove it, you want them to betray you with proof and then you can sever the relationship with conviction and move on and be happy.

      • (I thought I had answered this, but I don’t see it posted.) Thank you, Johnny. Interesting idea. I will be watching for something to happen that might match the interpretation. I’m not aware of any betrayals at the moment – the past betrayals have already played out – but who knows.

  3. I dreamed of two puppies, on bigger then the other. Both died and I wrapped them in a cloth and buried them I was so sad. A lady came and prayed over the puppies grave. Then the puppies were resurrected and began to play all around me and with me.

  4. In my dream, I found a small ginger coloured, beautifully natured dog, tied up to a post in the middle of a busy city/ town. I was concerned for it’s welfare and asked around to see who it belonged to. No one seemed to know, until eventually I was told it didn’t have an owner and I could take it. I then grappled with an internal battle, knowing that I wanted to take the gorgeous dog, but wasn’t sure if I should/ was allowed to/ should find the original owner.

  5. To me everytime I dream of a black dog it symbolizes Anubis… Everytime the dog wonders around a certain area or brings me somewhere, death will happen in the precise place where the dog was and whoever was there in the dream will be the one who dies or died… Different dogs (as long as it’s black) means different deaths in different ways… If the dog is not black I do not see or know of any death… If it’s white: good fortune. If it’s black: bad omen. I don’t know if it’s the same for others but that is how I know who will die and who will have good fortune. So far I trust my instinct and I’ve been right on the deaths and good omen. Best way to know what your dream means is to take note of the dream and try to make a perception of your own, since we don’t have tge same ways of interpreting them.

    • OH! I dream of two big black dogs. There’s inside our comfort room and the other one lying outside. I stepped back and go back to my room but the one inside followed me and was about to bite my right hands, good thing it didn’t happen when my boyfriends cousin run after me calling the dog by their names to stay away from me. So strange. First time I dream about a dog. Though we do have a dog in the house but they are all white. It bothers me a lot. Can you explain it to me, Madam what does it mean? Your help will truly appreciated. Thank you so much.

  6. I had to dream that I was driving with my boyfriend and there was a white husky next to the side of the road that seems to be a stray be pulled over, it had a collar and the name on it was Ona. We brought the dog in the car and then we drove to the grocery store we got it some food fed it. When we called the owner she said she didn’t want the dog anymore because they had problems with it and so I brought it home. The dog was playful, obedient, and would follow me wherever I went.

  7. I dreamed that I was hanging out with an old friend who is no longer a friend. We visited a friend’s of hers’ who were strangers to me. They had a Cocker Spaniel dog. Everyone was in the kitchen and the dog only seemed to pay attention to me. I was wary and a little afraid but tried not to show it. There was a child safety gate at the kitchen door so I closed it and stood on the outside of it by the kitchen door so that the dog could not get out. Nobody said anything or tried to call off the dog. I had my hand just resting on the top of the gate. The dog bit my index finger. It was not a ferocious dog but there was definitely an unfriendliness towards me which I could feel very strongly. I went to the bathroom and began to put a plaster on my hand. There was quite a lot of blood and I could see the teeth marks from the bite on my finger very clearly. Prior to that I wasn’t sure if the dogs’ bite had penetrated the skin or not. Someone from the family came to my assistance they were quite nice. I plastered my finger and woke up feeling very strongly that somthing somewhere was wrong.

  8. Last night I dreamt I looked out an open window from a 3rd story apartment building in my home town and saw dogs leaving peoples houses and lining up. There were 2 rows per street with big Rottweilers at the front leading them all away.

    At that same moment, my dog (a bulldog) was being pulled out the window by some weird force. I kept trying to close the window but it wouldn’t lock. At one point she was hanging out the window but I was able to pull her back up by her collar, hold her tightly and slam the window shut. Then, the dogs all started to march away like soldiers while my dog and I just watched.

    It was a weird dream and I have no idea what it means…

  9. I had the same dream twice. First one was some men trying to break into my house at night while I was in bed. Once they were inside my house I could see a big black dog with them. They instructed the dog to get me but told me if I said “Jesus” the dog would release me. I remember the dog grabbing hold of my fist with its teeth. (for some reason this is how my hand was in a fist position) Although I kept calling out “Jesus” the men would not instruct the dog to release me nor did the dog let go. There was pain but no blood I forcefully made myself wake up from the dream. The second dream- 3 nights later is very vague. I only remember being approached and bitten on the fist by the same big dog. This dream has me very puzzled and I would like to know what it means.

  10. I dreamed that I was hanging out with an old friend who is no longer a friend. We visited a friend’s of hers’ who were strangers to me. They had a Cocker Spaniel dog. Everyone was in the kitchen and the dog only seemed to pay attention to me. I was wary and a little afraid but tried not to show it. There was a child safety gate at the kitchen door so I closed it and stood on the outside of it by the kitchen door so that the dog could not get out. Nobody said anything or tried to call off the dog. I had my hand just resting on the top of the gate. The dog bit my index finger. It was not a ferocious dog but there was definitely an unfriendliness towards me which I could feel very strongly. I went to the bathroom and began to put a plaster on my hand. There was quite a lot of blood and I could see the teeth marks from the bite on my finger very clearly. Prior to that I wasn’t sure if the dogs’ bite had penetrated the skin or not. Someone from the family came to my assistance they were quite nice. I plastered my finger and woke up feeling very strongly that somthing somewhere was wrong. Can anybody please tell me what this means?

  11. I have had something funny happen to me 3 times in the last week and wonder if anyone can shed light on it. It is more like a vision, I keep waking up to my poodle crying and trying to get up on the back of the couch, where I have been sleeping lately, but then when I try to pick her up she disappears and then I see her asleep on the end of the couch. Last night same thing again, except this time it was a chocolate poodle puppy, and my poodle was asleep on the end of the couch, the pup was whining and I put my glasses on and tried to pick it up, when I tried to touch it, it disappeared. I am 49 years old, haven’t changed diet or meds. I am starting to freak out. lol

  12. Hello, I dreamt a curly haired white dog was drenched by the rain and it ran upstairs to me and I found a towel for it to lay on as he was trying to pull a blanket on him. And I decided he could stay in house but he might go potty in home. If you have a meaning for this I would appreciate it. Thank you very much, Mary Jo

  13. I had a dream of my big dog biteing my little dog on the head peaces of the head came off.My big dog was not being aggressive,and my little dog just stood ther with no pain.Can someone please tell me what this means. thanks

  14. I had a dream,and in the dream,without my knowledge,my dog was killed,its meat put in a big bowl and to be used as meat for a birthday party. As soon as I discovered,I got furious and scattered the whole party. Telling them to go look 4 my dog. Please what does the dream mean?

  15. Are those interpretations within a year? I just want to know how long I need to look over my shoulder… Because I dreamt of and black calm cat and an aggressive black dog biting my foot. Something bad is going to happen and I just want to know when it will happen…weeks, mths years

  16. I’m a little concerned. My 4 yr old was riding in her car seat this morning falling asleep in her car seat on our way to her daycare. All the sudden I hear a little bit of a whimper and she awoke. She told me when she closed her eyes she saw a really big dark brown dog that wanted to bite her. I told her to think of flowers and she responded “when I close my eyes he’s there”. She talks to someone while playing alone too. Name is “ham and cheese”. Not quite sure how to handle all this. Can you help or lead me to someone who can explain/help?

  17. i dreamed of many dogs coming and barking at me. i could not run away but to command them to go back and their went back but some of them continued barking at me while others started to play their tales…what on earth could that mean???

  18. Great interpretations, thank you.
    My dream was one with my daughter &
    we were skipping along a garden walkway
    near some doorways which we were trying
    to discover. They may have been residences
    or small businesses. The sun was shining,
    there was a lot of greenery. The ground had
    small fowl with chicks. The were slightly
    like oragami hens white & red combs not quite
    right, so we were trying figure out why.
    My daughter skipped along into an alley that was
    somewhat darkened. I followed but heard a
    low growl & saw a sturdy but smaller style
    friendlier style Rottweiler X. My daughter was
    laughing as she went ahead & I bent down &
    coaxed this dog out of the shadows a little & he
    became friendly. My daughter wasn’t worried.
    I woke up.
    “Now: I went in actual real life to a persons home &
    they have a Chow of dark colour who does a low
    growl & then I managed to become very friendly
    with her last time. So maybe I’m processing that?”
    thank you, any help would be great:)

  19. Hi Everyone,
    I dreamt that my current dog was happily playing with my long since deceased family dog in a big backyard (I live in an apartment with a small courtyard). In the dream they were playfully chasing each other and were smiling and someone standing behind me was telling me over my shoulder “see I told you they would be happier in a big backyard”. Both dogs had long matted coats which is strange because both are actually short haired breeds. The voice behind me was familiar yet unknown to me. I don’t recall ever dreaming about my deceased family dog even though I loved her a lot.
    Any insight people could give would be greatly appreciated.

  20. Last night I dreamt that I was with a friend and I was trying to buy one of the 4 labrador puppies presented to me (3 black labs & 1 white), but I didn’t get to buy one ’cause I left my money at home.

    All of these interpretations left me with a warning: only one of my friends are true, and the others are not. Though I like the bit where it said that to see happy dogs in the dream means that I’d overcome my opponents.

  21. I dream of a puppies around me.. new born puppies and one of them is missing and the mother bring it to me.

  22. I had a dream that I was in a highrise apartment building & heard a puppy whining. I looked all over the apartment, but couldn’t find him. I saw a window open & went to look out. Something told me to look to my left & that’s when I saw him. He looked at me & gave me a little whimper. Then he laid his head on his paws. I couldn’t reach him, so I had to climb half way out the window. I let him smell my hand before I petted his head. He looked at me as if giving me approval. I gently picked him up & he licked my cheek. The strange thing was the puppy was a black Lab. I’m desperately searching for a meaning to my dream. I think about it every day. Can someone Please help me?

  23. I dreamt that I got a white cat with bright blue eyes and I remembered my puppy that I recently got in real life so I rushed off to find it and it was outside but the puppy was white and looked totally different from my puppy. The white puppy in my dream was a bichon frise but I recognised it as my puppy. When I ran back up stairs to the white cat, it was gone. I also saw a lot of pink things in my room. And the green grass really stood out, so did the colours blue and white. But I felt enchanted when I looked into the white cats blue eyes, I recall thinking that, that was the reason why I had gotten it, because of its bright blue eyes. The cat was a female.

  24. I dreamed there was a one eyed white dog inside the bathtub when i went to the bathroom I stepped out to tell someone he was there and then it went to the dog catching a rat that was trying to go into a hole

  25. I had a dream of my dog twice within a week. He was in my home country and passed away so I didn’t see him dead almost 7 months ago.
    I saw him with another family and he was walking with them but came to a stop infornt of the house where I was standing and looked at me in the eye. He wasn’t looking happy nor very sad. Then he kept moving with them. I went after the family and started calling his name from the gate and knew he was lying there but he didn’t come. What is he trying to tell me?

  26. I had a dream of my beloved dog( a PAPILLON) white and black be dead, twice in my dreams . First receiving a call from my daughter said “Dad I don’t know what is going on with the dog, looks kind of sick come over and see if you can help out”. When I arrived to my daughter’ s house the dog’s body was on the floor death. The dog’s body was very thin, his tongue out. Real ugly view. then I wake up crying.
    The second dream in a different date is about being in a kind of family gathering ending with a nasty bickering with my ex, and my twins daughters. Then my daughter (the youngest twin) walk in with my beloved dog’s corpse in her arms. The dog’s body looks very thin and his coat looks yellow instead of white I grabbed the dog’s body away from my daughter and I was crying and blaming my twins for the dog’s death.

  27. I had a dream that a cute white/gray bulldog parachuted from the sky and bumped right into my room window. it was actually really funny I woke up laughing. what’s does this mean? haha

  28. Do you have an idea about what this dream may mean?
    I saw a dog and a mouse together in a box. The dog was fully grown but the same size as the mouse. The dog was a small short-haired terrier, mostly white with brown patches. The dog and the mouse were friends and happy.

  29. I dreamed last night that many people were staying over at my house (i don’t know them in real life except my partner but in dream i did, also house isnt my real house). They had decided to bring their pets, there were many dogs tied up throughout the garden. My companion and i were talking to this girl in the garden, we helped her put money into her back account and she explained she was going to get laser hair removal treatment. I was kind of paranoid about my cat being too close to the other dogs(he trusts everyone and most animals) so i kept him in my arms as we walked back to the house. I was talking to her about the treatment as i myself have recently looked into it. At the house one of the guests( female) buzzed us in and upon opening the door her corgi was sniffing us .The 3 of us started walking up the stairs to the second floor, corgi walking beside me. The stairs are the wooden type that are basically just planks of wood floating with gaps. On the last stair the dogs back legs slipped through the gap he couldnt grab onto the wood and fell to the floor below and died. I woke up terrified with the yelp ringing in my head as well as the noise when he hit the ground.

  30. I dreamed of my white dog getting hurt at the same time a human being got hurt. I never saw the person. But held my dog in my arms. My dog started yelling help me. Weird. But as I was the ambulance approach, everything got relaxed and I woke up. What does it mean?

  31. I just dreamed that my pet just stood at the side of my bed with only front paws up and was looking straight ahead over me and he had two heads. The color was dark all around and he is a boxer mix. What does this mean. I’m really scared from reading all this

  32. hi, i had a vivid dream and it woke me up sweating and scared. i actually had to put my bedside light on to calm down and get my thoughts elsewhere. the dream bothers me a lot and i would like to know if there might be some hidden meaning behind it. its quite short, but like i said it woke me up sweating, and scared. my partner was sound asleep next to me but i felt really uneasy.

    okay, so the dream is as follows: i dreamt that i got dropped off by a yellow cab at “home” (dont recognise the place but in the dream it was home). i didnt go into the yard so i was standing half in the street when the cab drove away. the place had black pallisade fencing around which i could see, and part of the front of the house but no great detail. i didnt go into the yard, because the scene was too much in the dream. in the dream i had 3 pet dogs. 1 young boerboel, 1 brown and white bulldog, and a ridgeback cross pitbull that was brown but with a white splash or line on its chest.

    there were suddenly dark wooden poles erect infornt of the door. 2 poles forming an upside down “L” (too high to touch) with the boerboel puppy hanging with all its legs hanging on each side of the pole. eyes half open, red foam at the mouth – dead.

    an “X” formed with dark wooden poles but on one side there was a shiny sharp axe blade with blood and flesh on, and the bulldog still stading upright inbetween the “X” formation, eyes open with a friendly face but the body was cut in half as it stood there in shape but with pink intestines on the one side – dead.

    the ridgeback cross pitbull was flung over a high tree branch with legs dangling on each side, like how the boerboel hung on the pole, eyes open and no blood – dead.

    is there a meaning to this madness?

  33. I had a dream that a warm honey coloured great Dane was with me in my dream and then wad trying to aim to wee on me whilst facing away from me. What does this mean?

  34. I have just now awoken from a paralysis dream. I have been falling into a lucid/paralyzed dream state off and on several times this evening. A few hours ago there was one where I could have sworn I truly heard my front door open and shut. It’s pouring rain outside. Then just now I dreamt that I woke up to a large black great dane laying on my bed. I remember him just looking at me with this almost sinister smile. I knew he would not hurt me but that he was not good. He was strong, confident, elegant, and controlled yet somehow ardent… all in a very dark way. I remember him coming closer to my face. I was paralyzed and did not want this dog to be in my bed, but to muster movement in that state takes a tremendous amount of effort. Eventually I gently pushed him off my bed and he just sat beside it and continued looking at me with that satisfied dominant stare and I ended up allowing him to come back to bed and lay beside of me because I was too tired to do anything else. It felt like giving up and giving in despite the comfort of it. It seemed that if I had made a hassle his owner may have been downstairs and could be someone more dangerous and that I would not want this person to hear. Anyways, I managed to force myself awake and have a lingering feeling of subtle fear and dread now. There is something about the large black great dane that I just did not like. It was a simple dream and I may be including too many details, but it felt very ominous and I would really appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

  35. Hi everyone,

    Would really appreciate if someone can interpret this dream I had about a dog:

    Last night, I dreamed that I had a light-brown and white furred Great Dane. It was lying down and looking at me. It then stood in what seemed to be a playful and happy mood, and started excitedly jumping around in a playful manner.
    I didn’t mind really, as I started cuddling the dog. Shortly, I had the dog kind of chew on my arm without any damage going on, and it did not hurt at all. I rather felt tickled from the dog chewing my forearm.

    Later, walking into another room, that same Great Dane was following me, standing tall, and was making a rather unusual sound unfamiliar to dogs. It was a croaking-snoring sound, to which I felt there was no threat of some sort. At the same time, the dog was looking at me, as I felt it was trying to tell me something.

    Can any one please give me an analysis of that dream?

    Much appreciated.
