No surprise that 94% of dog owners consider their pets to be family, but are you aware that your dog might influence your relationships?
Fifty-four percent of dog owners would consider breaking up with their lover if Fido didn’t get along with them.
Two-thirds report taking more pictures of Fido than their significant other and half said they’d rather leave the lover for a week than their dog!
Dog lovers are deeply concerned about their pets’ happiness. Just look at the rise in high-quality dog food advertisements! Dogs are included in many wedding ceremonies and custody cases.
