Dogs and the Enneagram

The 9 Enneagram Types and Dog Breeds

Here’s a nifty diagram of types explained with dog breeds. This is, obviously, not a comprehensive list. Perhaps you might not find it entirely accurate. But it is a good place to start.

We believe our Jack Russell Terrier, Carson, leans more towards a Type 6. He is fiercely loyal and can’t stand to be away from us, unless of course he’s stealing the remote control, having a snack, or chasing a squirrel in the park. His wing is likely a 5, for he is constantly thinking and analyzing conversations and situations.

Our previous Jack Russell Terrier, Wiggles (may he rest in peace), was probably a Type 9. He was so kind, loving, and amiable, never one to cause a ruckus – unless of course he was chasing a squirrel.
