Do Iowans Love This Dog Breed More Than Their Significant Others?
It's hard for most of us to resist showing affection to a dog when we see one (they are just so darn cute!). For this reason, it's no surprise that a new report from Rover found that this Valentine's Day our love is going to the pups.
The findings show the following:
- 67% of devoted dog people gaze lovingly into their dog's eyes (how often do you gaze into your partner's eyes?)
- 47% of people cuddle their dog more often than their partner
- 53% of dog owners would consider ending a relationship if their partner didn’t like dogs or was severely allergic
That's some serious canine love! The data was collected via a survey and includes responses from "1,450 U.S. adult dog owners who are dating or in a relationship." And get this, "nearly half (47 percent) of pet parents have planned a Valentine’s Day celebration for their dog, including buying them a new outfit or baking a dessert!" Dog people clearly go all out for their furry friends. And in some cases, more so than they do for their significant others.
Now, we love ALL dogs, but according to Best Life Iowans seem to be partial to one breed in particular. The curly-haired lap dogs, Bichon Frises!
No matter what kind of dog you have, from Bichon's to mixed breeds, it's safe to say that they all are loved the same. It has become even more clear thanks to Rover's research, that your love for them can sometimes outshine your love for your partner. Get more details from the study here and ask yourself Iowa... Do you love your pet more than your partner?
Whether you're spending the day of love with your significant other or your canine (or both), have a Happy Valentine's Day!
