Three’s Company

For those already cohabiting with a partner, the data reveals that there are three people in their relationship: the couple and their dog. One in ten dog owners admitted to kicking their partner or spouse out of bed to make room for their furry friend. And during long car journeys, it’s the dog who gets to call “shotgun.”

Birthday Extravaganzas

When it comes to celebrating birthdays, man’s best friend takes center stage. A whopping 19% of Brits confessed that they spend more on their dogs’ presents than on their human partners. In fact, 58% of respondents splurge up to £100 to celebrate their dog’s annual milestone.

Unconditional Love and Authenticity

Counsellor and relationship expert, Georgina Sturmer, sheds light on why our furry friends hold such a special place in our hearts: “In therapy, we talk about three core conditions: unconditional positive regard, empathy, and authenticity. Our dogs embody these qualities. They offer us unwavering love, walk alongside us through life’s ups and downs, and remain genuine and authentic in everything they do. It’s no wonder our connection with our pets is so rewarding and fulfilling.”

So, the next time you catch yourself canceling plans to snuggle with your four-legged companion, know that you’re not alone. British dog owners have truly mastered the art of love—with a wagging tail and a heart full of devotion.
