These two may have different priorities and attractions so need to be very committed in order to manage to stay with each other.

Dragon and Dog Compatibility

While incredible sensual partners, the Dragon and the Dog have real issues when it comes to other aspects of their relationship.

The Dragon is a real force of nature who feels things intensely and prefers to express him or herself openly, but the Dog may not like all this because people in this sign are also opinionated and usually want peace and quiet more than anything else.

People born in the year of the Dog need their emotional life to be balanced and they sometimes like to be alone. It’s possible the Dragon will get tired of the Dog’s moods and think his or her partner is only trying to emotionally manipulate.

Focusing on what can bring them together

In order for the Dragon and the Dog to be happy as a couple, they need to understand each other because they’re opposite signs and they may argue more than others, even if the Dog is known as tolerant and friendly with anyone.

It’s good that they can trust the attraction between them, because opposite signs indicate also strong attraction. However, because different, they’ll at some point face issues in their relationship.

It can be said their connection is not at all easy because the Dragon acts on impulse, while the Dog is always careful. Dragons are known as wanting to be surrounded by people, the Dog simply wants to be alone, not to mention the first loves fashion, whereas the other is only practical and that’s about it.

If these two focus on what makes them strong as a couple, they can manage to succeed at being together because neither of them minds working hard for their relationship to succeed.

If they’ll agree to adopt each other’s style, they may get along very well when it comes to finances. Because they have such different personalities, the Dog and the Dragon may argue more than other couples.

Both of them have tremendous force and a certain level of aggressiveness, they’re just expressing these differently. Dragon is known for wanting freedom and the Dog for demanding loyalty.

These natives take great pride in their values and are very stubborn to ever give up on their own views. While they may be interested to become more like one another, they don’t know how to actually do this.

If there’s for their relationship to last, they need to cooperate as much as possible as the Chinese Horoscope says they’re not very compatible. It wouldn’t matter if friends or lovers, these two still have difficulties getting along.

While the Dragon loves to flirt, the Dog is only interested in having a loyal partner. It’s easy for them to trust one another, but only if they don’t pay attention to what negative traits each has.

Opposites in many ways, they’re very attracted to each other from a sexual point of view, but not a perfect match because the Dog has too many emotions and needs attention, while the Dragon thinks the Dog is only manipulative, which is not at all true.

It can be said the relationship between these two natives is one of love and hate as their personalities are pretty much opposing one another. Both of them want to be leaders, but in different ways.

The Dog knows diplomacy and brings people together, the Dragon is a force of nature and uses power, thing that the Dog completely resents.

When the Dragon will try to somehow be abusive with the Dog, the latter will become defensive and even hurt. As neither of them is to open to compromise, they may never end up getting along.

However, one way for them to become a successful couple is all about sharing the same values. For example, they both have a strong work ethic, even if the Dragon feels energized and more creative when his or her ego is stroked.

Furthermore, they’re both completely dedicated and open to work hard for causes they believe in. The Dog wants fairness to prevail, so you can find natives of the sign fighting for justice next to activists or in different human rights campaigns.

A tricky match

Very decent and needing balance, the Dog would never do anything wrong. Honorable and honest, people born in this sign are usually the first to fight injustice.

The Dragon can be considered the same, so when together, these two may ally to fight dishonesty and abuse. There are many couples out there who haven’t resisted because the partners weren’t believing in the same values, even if they were compatible as far as their personalities and social life went.

The Dragon and the Dog are not the same because they simply think as one when it comes to values and morals. The Dragon is optimistic and can truly help the Dog become more positive, while the Dog can bring a lot of balance into a Dragon’s life.

The fact that the Dog is too humble will annoy the Dragon and the other way around, the former will be mad seeing how bossy the latter can be. They’ll appreciate one another for their positive traits, but they’ll also argue because of the negative ones.

As the Dog may feel like an object when in the arms of the Dragon, these two are not a match from a sexual point of view. Furthermore, the Dog needs cuddles and the Dragon can offer only passion.

Because the Dog can’t tolerate to be cheated on, the flirtatious Dragon may have serious problems in the relationship with him or her.

If the man in the relationship is a Dog and the woman a Dragon, there will be some things these two have in common. The lady in this couple needs to be admired and complimented, and the man will have no idea how to do all this.

Because he would all the time talk about her flaws, she’d be constantly very angry at him. When the man is a Dragon and the woman a Dog, they still don’t get along, even if he’s very generous and she’d never cheat.

The challenges of this romance

Unfortunately, the relationship between the Dragon and the Dog has many problems, most of the time. While they can make each other feel secure, these natives are not in any way compatible when it comes to other aspects of life.

Therefore, they may break up even before they’ve had the chance to make the first compromise as a couple or to live together harmoniously. When it comes to sex, the Dragon is only lusty, which is not at all to the liking of the Dog, who wants steadiness and to trust his or her partner.

It’s very likely the Dog will think the Dragon is only using him or her for physical pleasure, which can lead to many arguments between them.

Another problem these two may have as a couple has a lot to do with the fact that neither of them wants closeness as the Dragon is obsessed with independence and prefers to avoid emotional people, while the Dog doesn’t understand how to be tolerant.

Both of them are aggressive, so their arguments will be loud, aggressive and rarely ending with an agreement. The anger they have will all the time be expressed, while their stubbornness will never have them getting along too well.

The fact that the Dog and the Dragon are two signs that want power can have them fighting over who rules in the relationship. Neither of them will think of the other as capable to lead, either at home or when out with friends.

If they don’t learn how to compromise, the Dragon and the Dog can never be happy as a couple. The fact that the Dragon likes to flirt may have the Dog hurting and even straying.

It’s very possible for both of them to think other people can make their love life happier, which means only trouble for their connection together.

The Chinese Horoscope says this relationship doesn’t have too many chances to succeed without mutual understanding and respect.

Furthermore, the Dragon may have other priorities than just being together with the Dog because these natives are usually obsessed with work and their partners can’t really understand all this about them. Therefore, the Dog may take care of their family all alone, which is not in any way fair.
