 Fu Dogs are an extremely powerful protection for your home or business; you will find most homes or business in Asia complemented by a pair either inside or outside. Out of all the cures and enhancers in Feng Shui, Fu Dogs in our opinion are the most essential. They come in all shapes and sizes and some of the homes I have visited all over the world display some of the most magnificent pairs I have seen especially the ones in Asia.

Probably the most impressive are from the Beijing’s Forbidden City as shown below, these are really amazing to see.

They are also know as guardian Lions, lion dogs, or temple lions. We consult on hundreds of homes and business each year and around 70% will have Fu Dogs either placed by the door or windowsills, I would also say that 50% are placed in the wrong order, check below for confirmation.

Where do I place Fu Dogs in 2016?

For protection in 2016 you should place a pair of Fu Dogs – temple Lions in the southwest if they are red coloured or in the northeast if they are made from metal,  especially if you have a main door in either of these locations. As with all Feng Shui cures and enhancers you should make sure you cleanse all your symbolic ornaments. We cleanse all ours every 3-4 months by washing them and then placing them outside in a full moon or direct sunlight for at least 2-3 hours. By doing this you cleanse them of negative energy and empower them with positive Sheng qi energy.

You will find many variations on web sites, some will have a ball under one paw others will have a Cub under another paw, the most important thing to remember is the order placement and not which foot the ball or cub is under.

The male lion, holding a ball under his left or right paw should be placed on the left side (as you are looking out of a door or window).

The female lion, holding a cub under her right or left paw is placed on the right side.

  1. Michael, I’m just starting my research, but great comments, thank you. Have a weird question for you. I want to get fu dogs tattooed on both sides of my chest. I have peonies and chrysanthemums on my left arm and am doing more masculine on my right. Traditionally, I’d now have to get the male with the flowers and the female with the masculine side. Trying to nail the culture and tradition down right. Any issues with the above, or does it even matter mixing male with female elements, female with masculine elements? Really want to get this right as I’m adopting Some eastern culture into my life.

  2. Hello, I have a small pair I would like to place near my front door. Unfortunately, due to a brick wall next to the door, I cannot place one on both sides of the door. Can I place the pair on just one side of the door, next to each other? Thank you

  3. Hi
    Can I place a poster of fu dogs couple above the front door? And, is placing small statues of them on the top of the pillars of the main door(outer most, after which the road begins) correct?
    Kindly suggest me.
    Thanks.
    Gunjan

  4. Thank you for the reply,I\’m assuming that if I get a female foo dog it would be placed on the left side since the male is on the right.

    1. Hi Penelope,

      Yes that is right, the easiest way to spot the female is that they will have the cub under their foot.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  5. I just received a male foo dog and placed it it on the left side facing the front door, I live in a condominium and I\’m not sure if I placed it in the correct spot or if I should place it by the sliding glass door facing the outside and again on what side..I\’m confused and need some guidance..I appreciate your help
    Penny

    1. Hi Penelope,

      If the Fu Dog is inside the home, it should be on the right side facing outwards. The male Fu Dog should always be placed on the right side of a door.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  6. Hello if just bought 2 of these and they are placed under a window on the floor the correct way round but facing a door which is on the other side of the room is this OK or better placed by the door facing the window? Thanks kelly

    1. Hi Kelly,

      I would recommend placing them on the windowsill, facing out of the window to the outside of your home for protection.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

    1. Hi Trigger,

      I would not recommend having them all over the house but they will be fine by all entrances and exits of the home.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  7. I rearranged my playroom (once more, LOL, attempting to figure
    out the very best layout!) and wondering about this.

  8. I can\’t place my Fu Dogs outside for fear that they may be stolen or accidentally broken. They are too large for the windowsill, yet are too small and wouldn\’t be proportionate for my front door. I would prefer to keep them in the house. Please let me know where they can be placed on my living room. Thank you for your input and help!

    1. Hi Gill,

      You can place it on its own although it will not be as effective and is better placed in pairs to complete the energy.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  9. I have 2 Fu Dogs that are blue and made of stone, and were given to me as gifts years ago. One has it\’s mouth open, the other does not. They do not have anything under their paws. I have the Fu Dog with it\’s mouth closed in my son\’s bedroom, and I have the other with it\’s mouth open on a shelf in an open area between my kitchen and living room, facing toward my front door and window. I put them like this today because all the negative energy would go out of the mouth and out of the door (I had them in reverse order prior to today, and wanted protection on both floors and especially my son\’s room).A Is this correct? I cannot place them in a pair on the windowsill, as there is no room. Any suggestion that you have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Hi Janine,

      I would recommend placing them together outside your front door as they will work in synergy when placed together. The correct placement is displayed on this page.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel

  10. I have 2 Fu Dogs that are blue and made of stone. They were given to me as a gift many years ago and none of them have a ball or cub under their paw. The only difference between these 2 is that one\’s mouth is open and the other one\’s closed. I have the one with the mouth closed in my son\’s bedroom, pointing towards the door, and I have the other one (mouth open) on a shelf between the kitchen and living room, facing towards the window and door. Then my sister told me that I should switch them, because she heard that the negative energy would go out of the mouth towards the door. Is this correct? I know that they should go on a windowsill, but they can\’t fit. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    1. Hi Janine,

      I would recommend placing them together outside your front door as they will work in synergy when placed together. The correct placement is displayed on this page.

  11. Is it suitable to place the dogs in a window? My living room window faces a church and I would like to balance the energy, but it is in the south of the house.

  12. They should always be in pairs, Male (supremacy) female (nurture) often the male is used solo for power. There needs to be a balance.

    Mostly in western culture are they referred to as dogs, they are lions.

    The are a beautiful creatures and have an aura about them that cant be denied.

    1. Hi Gia,

      You can place it on its own although it will not be as effective and is better placed in pairs to complete the energy.

      Kind regards,
      Daniel
