- "danger" (Dogs are very alert to the possibility of danger. We sometimes feel they have special (almost supernatural) powers to sense danger. Much of this is linked to their heightened senses as they can sense danger through smell. Can you think of some practical way in which this theme has applied in real life? Did you sense danger yesterday? Can you smell trouble brewing and wish to stay clear of the danger? Your dream could be a symbolic version of any thought like that.)
- "follow someone's idea" (Dogs faithfully follow their masters and such a theme may apply in similar ways in your own life. Are you trying to get someone to follow your ideas at work? Is someone trying to get you you follow their ideas? Such real life situations may have triggered your dream and the dream probably connects to some thoughts connected this)
- "in fighting" (Dogs are by nature pack animals. We use the phrase top dog to describe a leader who imposes himself upon others. Has their been any in fighting in any groups you are part of? Has someone challenged your dominate position? Has their been any petty squabbling? Any situation like this may trigger a dream. Such dreams show that you are aware of this in fighting and thinking about it in detail. Your dreams probably represent your key feelings about this)
