Who is the first one to greet you at the door and to cuddle with you on the couch – your dog. Dogs are always there when we need them and give us unconditional love. So, it should come as no surprise that a study found humans kiss their dogs more than their partners.
Who can resist those adorable faces. They bring us so much joy and one of the ways we can show our affection and appreciation is through kisses. Riley’s Organics, an organic dog treat company, wanted to see just how close humans were to their dogs, so they conducted a study.
The results proved that humans think of their dogs as more than a pet. 94% of people surveyed claimed their dogs were one of their best friends and they would rather stay at home with their dog than go out. 52% of participants admitted that they kissed their dogs more than their partners. To take it a step further, 52% said they prefer to sleep in bed with their dog over their partner, reported People.com.
Pet parents have shown that they love their dogs and treat them as members of the family, or even better. Many of you reading this may have chuckled because you agree with the 52% surveyed. Dogs give us unconditional love and they deserve the same in return.
