New research has revealed that almost half of UK dog owners talk to their pet more than their partner.
Tails.com, a new company which supplies custom-made dog food, conducted the study and found that more that 41% of dog owners in the United Kingdom admitted to having more conversations with their beloved dogs or cats than their partners. 40% revealed they would be more likely to share their deepest secrets with their dogs than anyone else.
It was found that the average dog owner spends 47 minutes talking to their pooches every day. 81 of the animal-lovers who participated in the study said they felt happier after a chat with their furry babies and 65%of them admitted their dog is their best friend in the world.
It’s common knowledge that dog owners just love taking selfies with their dog. But Brits love their dogs so much they pose for more photos with them than with partners, friends and children combined. According to the study, the average UK dog owner takes six snaps of their pet a week.
More than 86% of respondents said their dog is always there for them when they need someone.
96% percent of the dog owners said their dog was a part of their family, not just a pet, and nearly as many – 94%- said their dog cheers them up when they’re feeling down.
Aren’t dogs just the best conversationalists? There’s never an argument – our pooches just love whatever we say. 🙂
