We've all heard the saying 'dogs are a man's best friend', but according to a recent study it might actually be the case!
A study has found that just over 50% of people admitted to enjoying the company of their pets more than their best of friends.
On top of that 17% of people would rather spend time with their pet than their partner!
The study also found out some other things about our relationships with animals...
- 70% of people felt more calm around their pets
- 79% of people miss their pets when they travel
- 57% of people feel less lonely when with a pet
Based on this, it's pretty clear we love our pets!
