Dogs are man’s best friend, they are loyal and playful some would say perfect pets.
But, in this article we are talking about black dogs and their meaning in dreams.
Black colour in dreams rarely has a positive meaning, it represents something dark.
Black can also be a symbol of trouble, difficulties, hardships.
Black dog in a dream is also a bad omen in most cases. It rarely has a positive meaning.
Every dream has its own meaning, what is important when it comes to dreams is to remember the small details.
Colour, shape, actions are factors that can make the big difference when it comes to meaning.
Just like we mentioned earlier black is a bad symbol, black dog is also a negative symbol.
In many cases it represents hardships, troubles with your emotional state and behaviour.
It may represent some inner issues and troubles with expressing your feelings.
There is also a chance that this type of a dream appears when you are avoiding your problems.
Some people have a habit of running from difficulties and their issues, that is why they get even more problems.
This dream may even be an indication on possible issues with your family.
Perhaps you are having some family issues that are going to get more serious than you thought.
Or maybe you will receive some unpleasant news about your job or it could be connected with your love life.
Maybe you are feeling like you should end your relationship with your significant other, or you are experiencing some conflicts with yourself.
These dreams appear because you have a lot going on in your life and it is not really good.
There will be troubles and trials ahead of you, you must be prepared.
Sometimes this dream doesn’t really have a special meaning.
That happens if for example you have a black dog, or someone you know has a black dog.
Perhaps you were thinking about him and it reflected in your dream.
Or perhaps you have had a black dog who died and you miss him.
There is also a chance that you are afraid of black dogs, or there could be a certain black dog that attacked you and you have unresolved trauma about it.
But, still you should search for the meaning of your dream.
Also, try to remember the size of a dog in your dream.
That could represent the size of an issue in your life, it could tell you if the problem is serious or not.
You can dream of seeing a fearsome black dog, a black dog chasing you, an angry black dog, etc.
There are several interpretations of this type of a dream. It may even appear as a nightmare sometimes.
If you are dreaming of a black dog chasing you, or perhaps a black dog attacking you then it could make you feel afraid.
This unpleasant feeling may even stay during the day after you woke up from the dream. That attack may even wake you up immediately.
Also, keep in mind that there is a possibility that your friends will leave you.
This dream is connected with your circle of friends and people that are close to you.
It may be a sign that they are not your real friends, you are not aware of it but your subconscious mind is.
Just try to analyse the situation around you and you will be surprised.
Hopefully you will find the meaning and improve your life.

White represents a good side of you, while black the bad side of you.
If you see more of white, it means that you are controlling your bad side.
You are making right choices and acting responsible.
While, if there is more black colour on the dog then it means that you are letting your desires lead you.
This is bad because it means that you are lacking discipline and that you are having issues with your moral side.
Perhaps you are making choices that could ruin you and your reputation.
If that is the case, this dream is a sign for you to stop acting recklessly.
Start taking things more seriously.
