Most Dog Owners Would Rather Kiss Their Pet Than Their Partner, Study Suggests

Riley’s Organics conducted a poll.




Most dog owners in a new survey said they give their pet more kisses than they give their partner, reports.

The poll by Riley’s Organics found that 52 percent of owners were handing out smooches more freely to their canine companions.

The same percentage also said they prefer sleeping in bed with their pooch as opposed to their partner.

Among those surveyed, well over 90 percent identified their dog as one of their best friends, notes.


The survey by Riley’s, an organic dog treat company, is not the first to find that pets come before humans in many families.

For example, 71 percent of pet owners prefer snuggling with a pet, rather than their human partner, a survey by PetFirst Pet Insurance found early this year.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
