If you dream of a dog with bars in its eyes, you can’t stare into its eyes to see its soul. This dream can mean this dog is owned. If you see an owner near this dog, then this interpretation matches.
Some dreamers may see animals being led on leashes, which are held on by owners who they recognize. For instance, a woman may dream of her ex-boyfriend holding onto a leashed dog/ cat. This dream image is powerful. The leashed animal may be a dream symbol representing the former partner, who was controlled tightly. In this case, that partner was you. This dream imagery may also be predictive of the kind of events that could happen in the future. The ex maybe holding onto another relationship that is unequal and has elements of bondage.
