As per the Chinese horoscope cycle, every fifth year of the Dog is affected by the element Earth. Earth is a steady and grounding element, and reinforces a Dog person's natural tendencies. This element makes a person born under the Zodiac sign of the Dog even more level-headed than the average Dog person. It may seem as though the Earth Dog takes a long time to make decisions, and that's because he or she does. When your loyalty means a lot to you, it is important to be absolutely sure you can trust a person before committing yourself. The prudent and cautious Earth Dog will take a long time to size you up, and if you are worthy, you will find yourself with a faithful companion who will never give up on you or stop believing in you.
Earth Dogs have a very refined and keen sense of justice. They are cool-headed, and listen carefully to both sides before making a decision. People born under this Chinese horoscope make excellent arbitrators and negotiators because of this sense of justice and fair way of thinking. Unlike Dogs tempered by other elements, the Earth Dog is likely to be a peace maker rather than a Champion for a particular cause.
These steady, resolute, and reliable people work hard and never seem to tire. Their endurance is phenomenal, so it can be easy to forget that they have needs, too. If there is a person in your life born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Dog and tempered by Earth, remember to pay attention to their needs as well. They deserve it!
