How Your Dog Can Influence Your Love LIfe

We have all heard “love me, love my dog” and a recent study conducted by Indiana University and have found it to be true. Together, with PetSmart, they surveyed and found that people (more often women) judged their date by how they reacted and interacted with their pet. 

Other finds included:
  • Women found men that had adopted a pet to be more attractive
  • Women thought  how a man interacted with a pet to be a good indicator in potential behavior with children and how involved they might be in the care of children.
  • Dogs were thought to be more accurate in assessing potential than other types of pets- Cat owners did not tend to think it the interaction was an indicator.
  • Men were more likely to use a dog to attract women
