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 2017?
For protection in 2017 you should place a pair of Fu Dogs – temple Lions in the east if they are red coloured or in the south 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.
