People would rather spend time with their pets than friends says study


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!
