Dutch Dog Owners Prefer Their Animals to Their Partners

Research of the National Geographic channel has found that Dutch dog owners prefer their relationship with their dogs to that with their partners. The study was undertaken amongst 534 people who own at least one dog. The relationship with the dog received on average a rating of 8.5 out of 10 as opposed to a rating of 7.8 out of 10 for the relationship with partners. In 29% of the cases polled the dog sleeps in the bed of its owner. Almost half considers the dog as a full conversation partner. More than half of the respondents spend more than 3 hours a day with their dog.
