Logically, that is quite an acceptable idea. After all, animals have been around on this planet for much longer than we have. Besides which, if the planets and signs affect us humans, then why not our pets? They too are influenced by the same forces that we are. And they too have their own significant personality traits.
So what would most pet horoscopes talk about? And what is the basis of finding out your pet's sign? The process is simple really. Your pet's sign would be based on his date of birth. That would be the sun sign, of course. If you want to go into lucid details, one would make a Natal chart in very much the same way as one would for a human being―based on the date, time, and place of birth―this one would be more detailed.
For now, let's just stick to the sun signs. These pet horoscopes would help you understand your pet better, and you would gain a lot of clarity about why they do what they do. This might help you understand your pet so much better, and thus, help build a long-lasting, companionable relationship with it.
