Some people aren’t just going to shower their human partners with love on Valentine’s Day.
Showing love to the pets is also going to be a priority, according to rover.com.
In a survey of 1,500 U.S. dog owners conducted in January via Pollfish, Rover came up with the following conclusions:
· Nearly half of all dog owners agree that they would only be in a relationship with a dog person.
· One in five pet “parents” say they have stayed in a relationship longer than intended because of their partner’s dog.
· 72% of pet “parents” are likely to click on someone’s dating profile if there is a dog in the picture.
· 61% of dog people believe that being a pet “parent” impacts the health of their romantic relationship.
· Half of pet "parents" in relationships agree that they spend more time as a couple now that they have a dog.
· 71% of pet “parents” in relationships say they are more attracted to their partner after seeing how they care for their dog.
· 86% of dog people in a relationship agree that having a dog makes them feel more like a family.
· Two in three dog owners say they have more confidence in their parenting skills since owning a dog; most pet “parents” (67%) are also more confident in their partner’s parenting skills after owning a dog.
