As pet owners, we are always looking for ways to improve the health and wellbeing of our furry companions. But have you ever considered that your dog’s energy centers may need some attention? Like humans, dogs have seven chakras. The chakras are vital to their physical, emotional, and spiritual health. In this blog post, we’ll journey from root to crown. We’ll explore each of these vital energy centers and see how they impact your dog. Get ready to learn about the fascinating world of chakras in dogs!

Introduction to Chakras

Chakras are energy centers in the body. They are responsible for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. There are seven main chakras in the body, each located at a different level from the root to the crown.

The first chakra is the root chakra, located at the base of the spine. This chakra handles our sense of safety and security.

The second chakra is the sacral chakra, located just below the navel. This chakra handles our sexual and creative energies.

The third chakra is the solar plexus chakra, located between the navel and heart. This chakra handles our personal power and sense of self-worth.

The fourth chakra is the heart chakra, located in the center of the chest. This chakra handles our love and compassion.

The fifth chakra is the throat chakra, located at the base of the throat. This chakra handles communication and self-expression.

The sixth chakra is the third eye chakra, located between the eyebrows. This chakra handles intuition and wisdom.

The seventh and final chakra is the crown chakra, located at the top of the head. This chakra handles our connection to Spirit or Source energy.

Now that we’ve briefly introduced each of the seven main Chakras let’s take a look at how they relate specifically to dogs.

The Root Chakra

The root chakra, which is the first of the seven chakras, lies at the base of the spine. Our survival instincts are linked to this chakra. It is also tied to our feeling of safety. When we balance this chakra, we feel grounded and stable. We are able to face challenges with confidence and a sense of calm. When it is out of balance, we may feel anxious, fearful, or insecure.

There are a few things you can do to help balance your dog’s root chakra:

  • Spend time in nature. Walking your dog in the park, hiking, or playing in the backyard are all great ways to connect with nature. They help you ground yourself.

  • Exercise: Getting regular exercise helps to release pent-up energy and tension. A tired dog is a balanced dog!

  • Massage: A gentle massage can help relax muscles and ease tension. Try massaging your dog’s back, hips, and legs for a few minutes each day.

The Sacral Chakra

The Sacral chakra sits in the lower abdomen, right below the navel. This chakra is linked to water. It is in charge of our emotions. When we balance this chakra, we feel confident and secure in our relationships. We are able to give and receive love freely. Yet, the Sacral chakra can be out of balance. Then, we may feel emotionally unstable and have trouble trusting others.

Dogs’ Sacral chakra gives them security. It makes them feel safe in their pack. A dog with a balanced Sacral chakra will be confident and have an easy time forming bonds with other dogs. They will be able to adapt easily to changes in their environment. But, a dog with an imbalanced Sacral chakra may be fearful and anxious. They may have trouble bonding with other dogs. They may react to changes.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra, located in the stomach area, associates with the element of fire. This chakra handles your dog’s ability to digest food. It absorbs nutrients and eliminates waste. A healthy Solar Plexus Chakra results in a good appetite. It also leads to healthy digestion and a strong immune system. When this chakra is out of balance, your dog may have digestive issues. These issues include diarrhea or vomiting. He may also be prone to infections and allergies.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is in the center of the chest. Love, compassion, and connection are associated with it. When dogs have a balanced chakra, they feel secure and connected to their pack. They are trusting and open to new experiences. An imbalance in the heart chakra can lead to fearfulness, mistrust, and isolation.

The Throat Chakra

The Throat Chakra, also known as Vishuddha or the fifth chakra, resides in the throat. Communication, expression, and creativity are associated with it. The Throat Chakra handles our ability to speak truth. It lets us express ourselves authentically. When we balance this chakra, we can communicate clearly and effectively. We feel confident expressing our opinions and ideas. We can listen to others with openness and respect.

When the Throat Chakra is out of balance, we may have trouble communicating. This applies to both words and other signals. We may have a hard time speaking our truth or asserting ourselves. We may also find it difficult to listen to others without judgment. Your dog may be having trouble communicating. You might also see them behaving aggressively or withdrawing from social interaction. Their Throat Chakra may be out of balance.

The Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye chakra is the insight energy center. It links to intuition, insight, and psychic ability. Located in the center of the forehead just above the brow line. This chakra is often represented by the color indigo or violet.

When this chakra is in balance, dogs are able to tap into their inner wisdom and intuition. They have a strong connection to their “inner voice” and they trust their gut instinct. Dogs with a balanced third eye chakra are confident, secure, and intelligent.

If this chakra is out of balance, dogs may be anxious, fearful, or indecisive. They may have trouble trusting their intuition or be overly skeptical. Additionally, they may suffer from separation anxiety or compulsive behaviors.

The Crown Chakra

The crown chakra, located at the top of the head, serves as the highest energy center in the body. Our connection to the divine links it. It represents our highest potential. When we balance this chakra, we feel connected to something bigger. We also have a sense of peace and well-being.

In dogs, the crown chakra is often seen as a bright white light emanating from the top of their head. This light represents their connection to Source energy. It shows their ability to tap into higher consciousness. When this chakra balances, dogs can live in the present. They are not held back by past or future worries. They are able to enjoy life fully and be in tune with their own inner wisdom.

What happens when a Dog’s Chakras are blocked?

When a dog’s chakras are blocked, they can’t function properly. This can lead to physical, mental, and emotional problems. For example, if the root chakra is blocked, the dog may have trouble walking or standing. If the sacral chakra is blocked, the dog may have urinary or reproductive problems. If the solar plexus chakra is blocked, the dog may have digestive issues. And if the crown chakra is blocked, the dog may have behavioral problems.

How to Unblock a Dog’s Chakras?

The chakras can become blocked when there is an imbalance in the corresponding energy center. This can happen due to a variety of reasons, including physical or emotional stress, trauma, or negative thoughts and emotions. When one or more of the chakras are blocked, it can lead to physical, mental, and emotional problems.

The good news is that there are ways to unblock the chakras and restore balance. One way is through energy healing modalities such as Reiki or acupuncture. These modalities can help to release blocked energy and promote healing.

Another way to unblock the chakras is through meditation and visualization. Visualize white light going into the body and cleansing the chakras. Alternatively, you can imagine each chakra opening up like a flower.

If you’re not sure how to visualize or don’t have time for a lengthy meditation session, there are also some quick and easy exercises you can do to unblock your dog’s chakras. One simple exercise is to place your hands on either side of their head and then move them down the front of their body while mentally repeating the mantra “I release all that no longer serves me.” As you move your hands down their body, imagine all of the negativity and blockages being released


From the base of the spine to the crown of their head, dogs have seven energetic chakras that can be explored, understood, and balanced. By learning about these energy centers in our pets, we can better understand how they experience life and make sure that all aspects of their being are nourished. Taking time to explore your dog’s chakras is a great way to deepen your bond with them and ensure they live a happy and healthy life.
