Sort Your Dog Into Their Hogwarts House

I saw this on Birdie Bookworm and couldn't resist doing it for Belle. Who hasn't wanted to sort their doggo into a Hogwarts house?

Belle, Lancashire Heeler


1.You take your dog to the a brand new dog park. They:
a. Bravely bounce into the park, introducing themselves to all the dogs.
b. Stick right by your side, annoyed if another dog tries to approach you.
c. Are mostly interested in the agility toys (hoops, jumps) set up.
d. Quickly introduce themselves to the other humans present, figuring out how to get pets/scratches from each.

2.You place a treat under one of three upside-down cups. They:
a. Wait for you to reveal where the treat is.
b. Sniff until they’ve found the right cup, and push it over to receive the treat.
c. Immediately go to the correct cup and treat, no sniffing required.
d. Knock over all three cups to find the treat.

3.A visitor comes over for the first time. Your dog:
a. Runs happily up to the person, wagging their tail.
b. Sticks by your side until you indicate that the visitor is okay.
c. Does something new and unexpected each time you have a new visitor.
d. Doesn’t let the person in until they have been thoroughly sniffed and approved of.

4. It’s time for a treat! Your dog prefers:
a. Pretty much anything you give them. They’re always up for something new!
b. A simple puzzle toy, like a Kong filled with peanut butter
c. A complex puzzle toy, where they have to solve a puzzle to get a treat dispensed (like a shuffle board or flip board)
d. A chew, such as a bull stick or beef knuckle

5. Does your dog have any nervous habits?
a. Nope, they’re always confident.
b. They yawn.
c. They hide.
d. They stick out their tongue or lick their nose.

6. Does your dog bark a lot?
a. Only if approached by an unfamiliar dog or person.
b. All the time.
c. Only if you ask them to “speak”.
d. Yes, but only at a low volume.

7. You take your dog to an obedience class. They:
a. Grow bored after a while and start exploring the area.
b. Keep trying until they get every command perfectly.
c. Pick the commands up quicker than all the other dogs in the class.
d. Figure out how to get to the treats without following a command.

8. Would your dog make a good service dog?
a. Maybe. They’re generally kind to everyone, but also love adventures.
b. Absolutely! My dog would do anything for me.
c. Sure – they’re a quick learner.
d. Nope, there’s no way they wouldn’t get into trouble.

9. You take your dog hiking. They:
a. Run ahead to scout out the trail.
b. Never get tired and stick by your side the whole time.
c. Want to sniff everything.
d. Stay close, but as the leader of your “pack”.

10. You give your dog a new toy. They:
a. Destroy it.
b. Are obsessed with it and play with it for hours.
c. Quickly grow bored with it.
d. Would rather play with the packaging.

Mostly As: Gryffindor – your dog is courageous, brave, and chivalrous. 
Mostly Bs: Hufflepuff – your dog is a hard worker, is patient, just, and loyal. 
Mostly Cs: Ravenclaw – your dog is intelligent, creative, a quick learner, and witty. 
Mostly Ds: Slytherin – your dog is ambitious, cunning, resourceful, and a good leader.

So Belle's a Slytherin. I guess I'm not really that surprised, because she is a devious wee pup when it comes to balls and food.


  1. OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING AND I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING LIKE IT FOR YEARS. I may have to pinch to do on my blog for Shimmer and Saffy, if you didn't mind?

  2. Holy crap this is just amazing! I wish I had a dog so I could sort it a Hogwarts house!

    lots of love, Jasmin

  3. Haha aww I love this! So wish I had a dog, it's such a good idea x

  4. This is just brilliant! I tried to do this as I was reading your post and my dog got equal number of A's and B's, so does that make her a GryffinPuff? Hahaha ��

  5. This is hilarious and perfect! I might have to do this for my cats (altered slightly)! Though I'm pretty sure they would be Slytherin and Hufflepuff...

  6. Dexter is a Slytherin too! Loved this quiz.

  7. Ahhh!! Another reason to get a doggie! I'd take one in ANY of the Hogwarts houses :) All I need is to get out of this townhouse and get a yard for him to play in <3 Love this!!

  8. Oh my dog is SO Slytherin.😂Although he does fit into some of these other he'll figure out how to get the treat without working and he's the actual most laziest thing haha.😂

  9. I love this! My dog is a Hufflepuff no doubt about it!

  10. This is SO cute! I managed to adapt the questions to fit my Guinea Pig but I already know he's definitely a Slytherin and will do anything for treats and attention!

  11. OMG! This was so much fun!! I did the quiz alongside and my baby boy, Jafar would be a Gryffindor. It's quite fitting!

  12. This is such a fun idea, I need to find a cat one! Although I think my one would be in Slytherin and the other Huffleluff lol!

  13. This is such a cute tag! I definitely need to do one similar for my cat :)

  14. Love it! I wonder if there's a cat one or if they're just all slytherins? Did do this for my parents dog though and she is unsurprisingly as a Hufflepup.
