However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

PUPPIES : To understand a dream symbol we must think about it in great depth especially emotionally. A puppy is fun and friendly and highly devoted to its owner. Dreams tend to link to emotional themes in our lives so a puppy may symbolise the theme of fun or loyalty. Having thought about a dream symbol in depth then dreams can start to make sense. One dream in our study featured a door closing on two puppies. In real life the dreamer had been thinking about a relationship which went too far and so she would have to put a stop to it. So the puppies represented the dreamer and a man she had been flirting with. So puppies are a metaphor for the flirting and playfulness. There are other meanings of puppies in dreams so try reading this article in full to explore how the mind uses symbols to express recent feelings.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Is someone very devoted to you?
- Was there a particularly playful moment last night?
- Are you trying to follow someone's instructions completely?
- Do you sense a new feeling of loyalty and commitment?

KEY WORDS : Playful, devoted, unquestioning loyalty, adorable, child, flirting, impressionistic

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "a very playful moment or fun relationship"
- "he is very devoted to me"
- "doing everything in the way he asks me too"
- "a new sense of happiness and contentment within some close relationship"

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of puppies in dreams?

Think of people who are loyal to you such boyfriends, close family members and anyone whose devotion you generally do not doubt. E.g.

"Now I have split from my boyfriend I am starting to GET ALONG with him" [Dream Dictionary - black puppy]

In other cases the dream will represent your own loyalty to others. The dream will link to how that has been tested. E.g.

"I was so LOYAL and COMMITTED to my new job after the promotion. When my boss humiliated me like that though I felt abused"[Dream Dictionary - puppies raped][the dream which this quote is based upon is featured in full at the end of this article]

In another sense it maybe that someone is wanting you to be more devoted. E.g.

"My father wants me to meet some influential people and build up a NETWORK OF LOYAL CONTACTS but its really not my scene"[Dream Dictionary - puppy]

Puppies can link to flirting. E.g.

"I have been flirting with a guy. I realise I went too far and now I have put a stop to it"[Dream Dictionary - close door on 2 puppies]

Puppies are also signs of happy families and devoted relationships. E.g.

"I am about to move to Texas with my daughter. Its not easy right now with tempers easily tested with everything that is going on. But I am sure that this will be good for the family"[Dream Dictionary - Dog is bitten but has puppies in the future]

"I am trying to get pregnant. I just hope I will get the chance to have my own little adorable child"[Dream Dictionary - Catch fish that turns into puppy]
"I really want a relationship. I miss the closeness. But I realise its not happening just now. I felt it particularly last night when I saw a friend having fun with her boyfriend "[Dream Dictionary - Puppies are not chasing me but someone else]
-----------------------
DREAM TIP : The fact is that dreams represent your thoughts. So simply work the process in reverse. Look for evidence of your thoughts in your dreams. If for instance the day before was very stressful then look for evidence of that stress. Exactly which symbols could represent that stress.
----------------------------------------
SAMPLE DREAM
----------------------------------------
THE DREAM I dreamt that a group of about 20 men were going to rape me so I set my dogs on them, but it did not end there, instead of running away 3 of the men got hold of my puppy and hurt him buy putting sticks and other objects where they should not be. In the end I managed to get my dog away from them but was still raped.

THE REALITY The dreamer had recently been promoted. She had a choice of two jobs but now thinks that she may have made the wrong choice. The day before the dream she had a really tough day. Her boss gave her a hard time and made her feel like she was not good enough and that he had made a wrong choice by offering her the promotion in the first place.

DREAM ANALYSIS Rape in dreams often links to issues where we feel powerless and abused. So this issue from the previous day is an ideal explanation for the dream. Dreams often link to thoughts alive in our minds from the previous day. Its just a matter of making the connection.

The dream features the dreamers dogs. This is a symbol of loyalty and devotion to the company she works for. She feels that she has been given a promotion so was devoted to her boss in the way that a dog is devoted to its owner. So the further abuse of the dog could symbolise an extra and added feeling of abuse within the dreamer. Its probably the equivalent of saying "It feels so unfair as I was trying so hard and tried to do as I was told. I felt a sense of duty to my employer but now I feel that has been thrown back in my face".

Symbolic Meanings
20 MEN : "aggressive and male emotions - How aggressive should employers be allowed to act?"
CONTINUED RAPE : "It was worse when he made me feel that I was not worthy of promotion"
PUPPY : " I was so devoted and was trying to do my best "
RAPE : "I felt humiliated when he criticised my work performance"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have recently been promoted at work. But yesterday my employer said that he made a bad choice in promoting me. I felt really abused because I had been trying so hard."

See how the Symbolic Meanings above weave together to form a key insight in the DREAM MEANING
