CALL IT PUPPY LOVE?

BRITS SHUN ROMANCE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY FOR A DATE WITH THEIR PET

It is the most romantic day of the year, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day it seems almost half of us admit we would rather snuggle down with our pets.

It would appear we’re crazy in love with our animal pals – as 45 per cent of British people are hoping to spend Valentine’s Day gazing into the eyes of their favourite pooch.

But it’s not just cupid’s arrow falling short, as findings from the UK’s leading bed maker, Silentnight, showed we are twice as likely to look forward to seeing our pets everyday than our other halves.

Puppy love aside, it is no surprise 67 per cent of us spend more money on our four-legged friends than anyone else – choosing to treat our cats and dogs before our husband or wife.

The poll of 1,000 Brits found men were most likely to be in the ‘dog house’ this Valentine’s Day. Just one third of women planned to spend the day with their partner, and half admitted to spending the romantic holiday with their pet.

Young love does live on however, as 40 per cent of 16 to 24 year olds choose to woo their partners this Valentine’s in comparison to 42 per cent of 35 to 44 year olds, who opted for ‘man’s best friend’.

And it doesn’t stop when it comes to the bedroom, with 52 per cent of those surveyed choosing to share their bed with their cherished animal before their better half.

Many Brits complained of sleepless nights, 64 per cent admitting their partners were to blame due to excessive snoring.

Challenging pet loving Brits, Silentnight’s sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, believes our pets should get a room of their own.

She said: “Although it is soothing to have pets in our bedrooms, it can be very disturbing throughout the night.

“I would advise that pets have their own beds. We must avoid them getting into a sleeping habit on our beds as this can lead to further issues in the future.
“If you are being woken by your partners snoring, a quick fix is not to check the time. This will make a massive difference.”

As the more traditional ways of meeting someone gradually become extinct and dating apps such as Tinder and Happn sweep the nation, research from DogBuddy.com – Europe’s largest and leading community of doglovers – reveals that if you want to meet someone the good old fashioned way this Valentine’s day, your best chances are with man’s (or woman’s) best friend by your side. The recent survey of dog owners in the UK, Spain, Italy, France and Germany exposes that over 50% of Europeans find people more attractive if they own a dog.

According to the survey, 84% of people in the UK find it easier to talk to potential partners when out and about if they have a dog with them, as dogs are wonderful ice breakers, easing tension and creating a more relaxed and approachable atmosphere. So whether you’re walking the dog in the park or having a swift drink at the pub – you never know where you might meet ‘the one’. And with DogBuddy’s online community of over 200,000 dog lovers, it’s easier than ever before to meet a local dog owner or a reliable and fully vetted sitter.

With 51% of the population being single¹, having a dog as your buddy could mean the difference between dinner for one or dinner for two. Although it’s probably worth keeping in mind that 42% of those surveyed admit that the breed of dog affects their opinion of a potential partner. So it may be best to hold off on ordering the pasta sharing bowl until you know their thoughts on your beloved Chihuahua.

However, it isn’t just through the more traditional routes dogs can help us find love. The survey revealed how updating our online dating profiles and apps with a picture of you with your dog will also help you meet Mr or Mrs Right as respondents suggest it gives people a ‘softer side’.

Richard Setterwall, co-founder and CEO of DogBuddy comments ‘People often forget the power of the pet. Dogs in particular make it very easy to meet new people – through their friendly disposition and demeanour, they often make the introduction for you. I started DogBuddy because I couldn’t find anyone to look after my dog and with man’s best friend acting as a modern day cupid, it’s vital that when I’m away he gets the full care and attention he would get at home. Through the free DogBuddy iPhone app finding the perfect dog sitter for your pooch may even be easier than finding love through Tinder.’

This Valentine’s day forget your plans for one – become a dog sitter and potentially meet the love of your life… even if they do have four paws and a tail, dogbuddy.com
