You're going to have to work at it. And your spirit guide probably isn't going to be your favorite animal or Jim Morrison...
The fact remains that I don't know what to tell you. There is not "Basic Steps of Obtaining Your Spirit Guide."
You're also going to have to believe in Spirit Guides stongly, and so I think it may be placebo, though I don't know.
Also, many would consider Jesus their spirit guide. He is the most commonly "found" entity.

hmmm, I can't think of any good referance...
So you're already getting there huh? Good luck to you. I don't think that the dog is supposed to symbolize something though. If it is your spirit guide I think it is supposed to teach you something by guiding you spiritually, not by making you look in a book or chinese calender and finding out what "dog" means.
I think you might want to look at some of the native american type of sites, and also do a search for Shamanism. I remember whenn I was running some Shamanism searches a long while back there was a lot of things on spirit guides being animals, and how to make spirit wheels by placing representatives of your spirit animals at various points of a circle...

I'd have to say that It will find You when you're ready.

To do a thing and know no better is ignorance.
It is an act of kindness to educate the ignorant.
To do a wrong thing intentionally, is evil and wicked.

Coincidentially, I was thinking about this topic (or something quite related) today. Here are my thoughts, briefly.

Cross-culturally, spirit guides usually manifest as animals, or at least in a quasi-animalistic form. Birds, bears, bison, mice...ect ect. What the guides usually accomplish is to help the person through the shadow realm of the unknown - the realm of fear. Shaman, the most notable utilizer of animal guides (and spirit guides in general) use their guides to move through the realms of the dead (again, read death as darkness and fear - the three are correlated in the mind).

How do you find your specific spirit guide? Well, my thought today was that perhaps the easiest way to /find/ your guide is to understand just what it is you /fear/. Think of your phobias.

My friend Joe has a fear of snakes, not because he feels that snake will /kill/ him, but because of what snakes /represent/ in his mind. All people who have phobias can understand /rationally/ that their fear of the situation or thing is silly, but the fear still persists. Again, this is because the phobia revolves around what the thing or situation represents to us, not what it literally is. Joe's general fear is somehow related to this mental symbol which manifests as 'Snake'. If Joe were to go looking for his Spirit Guide...I would tell Joe that his most likely canidate is...Snake.

Apply that to your fears, appy that to your 'darkness' and 'death', and you can probably divine the nature of your 'guide'. Most probably, you're not going to 'talk' to your spirit guide, you're not going to have conversations and tell jokes to one another. The guide allows you to see your fear and hopefully, to work through it. Afterall, the path to ultimate understanding is through our fears. All of them.

I think you've nailed it Ishmael. Rarely do I agree with something so thoroughly as this. (I hope that doesn't discredit Ishmaels statements in some peoples eyes.) ;)

I USED THREE BOOKS FOR KNOWLEDGE WHILE IN HYPERFLIGHT. FOODS OF THE GODS--BY TERRENCE. SPIRIT OF THE LAND--BYCOURTNEY MILNE,AND A BOOK CALLED THE SHAMEN. THESE MIGHT HELP YOU LEARN HOW TO FIND YOUR TRUE GUIDE.
