DOGS are just as much woman’s best friend as they are men’s. Nearly one in five women spent more time chatting to their pets than their partners, a survey of 2,000 female dog owners in
Welsh, Scottish and those living in the South-East were most likely to strike up a conversation with their pet. More than a third leave the radio or television to keep their pets company and 42 per cent take time off work to nurse sick animals.
“Nothing is too much trouble to make sure our furry family member is contented and healthy,” said Richard Rockett, from dog food specialist Burgess Supadog Sensitive which carried out the survey.
“We share everything with our dogs, from our favourite television programme to musical preferences, and we’re not afraid of showing real affection for our favourite companion.
We are pleased that pet owners take the responsibility of owning a dog so seriously.”
