They will not cut corners with their conscience, nor willingly go against the established legal structure. They are also firmly rooted in full disclosure, speaking the truth with utter sincerity, and utterly reliable no matter the circumstances.
Due to both these Dog traits, they have a well-developed sense of personal control, and an almost unbreakable concentration. They are easily satisfied with the simple things in life, never aspiring to wealth and trying to be center of attention. They are also persistent in pursuit of their goals and ambitions, utterly tireless on their trek.
Like so many zodiac signs, the Chinese Dogs weaknesses are related to those things that are their strengths. They have high ideals, but are prone to sacrificing too much in their pursuit, especially if the end result will better mankind. Their strong moral character can make them inflexible, unable to bend from their moral right even when it’s serving as a major detriment to their existence.
The Chinese zodiac Dog‘s powers of concentration and self-control result in them having a somewhat underdeveloped imagination, as imagination is the province of the unfettered mind. They are not precisely frugal with their money, but have little regard for those who live in thick luxury.
For all their deep ties to people and sensitivity, they are also very emotionally dependent and vulnerable. They also have a problem dealing with decision making. They are also unfortunately predisposed to being critics. Dogs bark a lot, and make no habit of hiding their opinions or sweetening them.
The Chinese Dog is a dedicated and conscientious worker, always aware of what will best benefit their fellow workers and the company as a whole. They are interestingly big-picture people, considering the long term results of their work, and their interactions with everyone involved.

They will show their ability of analyzing their team, and dealing with the concrete day to day tasks of management. Their interest in the benefit and growth of their team will prevent them from regarding wealth and its acquisition.
Chinese Dog As A Co-Worker:
As a Co-Worker the Dog zodiac is extremely dedicated, knowing that any failing in them will infringe on the ability of the whole team to succeed. That is, and always will be, Dogs first concern, the pack must succeed in order for the Dog's purpose in the team is to be fulfilled.

The mature Dog male or female on the other hand will serve as a co-worker nicely, and lead all involved with them towards that always important success. Know you can rely on them in the tightest of situations, for their personal success is pointless to them if they don’t take everyone with them.
The Chinese zodiac sign Dog is unlikely to develop wealth or security in their younger years, being decidedly prone towards financial success in their middle years and end of life. When it comes down to it, the Dog is not going to be financially practical, or even concerned a little bit with their own wealth and success.
As such, the Dog isn’t driven by money. They prefer to use it to benefit others long before they do anything with it to benefit themselves. This makes saving money difficult, though the Dog will generally keep enough for their own stability.
Dating A Chinese Zodiac Dog:

Their strong ideals also come into play, as those who pair with Dog must meet their almost impossibly high standards.
The Dog lovers will not propose marriage lightly, but when they do, be prepared for someone who is irrevocably bound to you. Nothing will turn their loyalty, and marriage is very much forever for them. Some of this is a sense of faithfulness, some of it is a strong aversion to change of any kind. Either way, you’re stuck with them.
The Chinese zodiac Dog is a bit old fashioned, and perhaps a little prudish. This being the case they are slow to embrace and practice the art of passion. Like all things, Dog settles in slowly, but once they reach a point of openness and comfort with their partner, the deep waters of their love will unfold. Dog isn’t much into trying new things, but with gentle coaxing can be led where you wish them to go. Most important to Dog, far above physical relationships, is intimacy and devotion, tenderness and love. Everything else springs from there.
