You Can Read a Dog’s Paw!

Palm-Reading Isn’t Just for People

Ever tried to read a dog’s paw? Turns out it’s not only possible, there’s also a precise method to doing it, and anybody can if they follow the right steps! Check out how to do it below.

eHow reports:

1. Choose a paw, traditionally a female dog’s left paw and a male’s right paw are read. Some schools teach that the dog’s dominant side will be a better way to get an accurate reading.

2. Get your dog to relax and see if your dog will roll over on her back for the reading. By rolling over it is easier to read your dog’s paw. You can also have your dog sit and hold up her paw to read it.

3. Identify the four major pads on your dog’s paw. You’ll find five pads, a large pad surrounded by four smaller ones. For paw reading we focus on the four smaller ones. On a human hand the four main lines are the heart line, the head line, the fate line and the life line. On your dog the four major pads are the behavior pad, the life pad, the play pad and the health pad.

4. Holding your dog’s pad up, the one all the way to the left is the behavior pad, followed by the life, play and health pads. To interpret the behavior pad you need to look closely at the shape of the pad. A rounded, smooth pad indicates that training will come easy. A rough, long pad indicates that the dog is spirited and has an independent streak.

5. When you evaluate the life pad it will indicate your dog’s life and general well-being. A pad that is multicolored indicates a long healthy life; smooth, long pads indicate vitality; almond-shaped indicates plenty of energy.

6. The play pad will indicate your dog’s desire to play and interact with other dogs and people. A rough, apple-shaped pad indicates very playful and friendly. A small, smooth pad indicates playful behavior, but tires easily.

7. You can evaluate your dog’s health pad by looking closely at the color and shape of the pad. A pad that is long and smooth indicates vitality. A pear-shaped, rough pad indicates strength and enthusiasm.

8. Your dog’s paw will change as life goes on. Check it every once in a while to keep tabs on your dog’s health, life, playfulness and behavior.

    I agree completely with Gina Rose. As a professional groomer I’ve seen a lot of feet. All breeds have a typical physical trait for their feet yet the dogs are highly individual. One example: my German Shepherd female has proper dark pigment meaning black nails and pads. She would not have multicolored pads. Does this mean she won’t have a long life? I doubt that as she is seven+ and still highly active and very healthy.

    Certainly environment and even seasons change textures of pads. Dogs who jog on concrete for example may have very rough pads.

    no…..this is one thing that does not hold water with me…..

    …and I sit on the board of a no-kill animal shelter.
    I’ve groomed professionally ( top show dogs) and done obedience training, and have shown and trophied in dog shows.

    I hope nobody uses this as any type of credible criteria in deciding upon which dog to adopt.

    The pads on a dogs feet will naturally vary according to breed, HEALTH, and living conditions…..for example : if the nails are left to grow too long, the dog will be standing up on his nails instead of standing squarely on his paws…..thus his paws will be smooth in some spots.

    living conditions : if a dog is kept, or has been kept outside for a long period of time, on concrete, his paws may be harder and rougher than a dog kept inside used to being on carpet.

    again….I hope nobody uses this as any type of credible criteria in deciding upon which dog to adopt.

    Blessed Be )O(
