The AKC surveyed 750 owners og AKC registered dogs and here's some interesting statistics:
88% regard their dog as a beloved family member
51% said their dogs affect how they spend their leisure time
47% consider their dogs comfort when shopping for a car
72% said they look for the best and highest quality brands of pet products for their dog
2 out of 3 owners purchased an average of 9.3 balls for theie dog to play with in the last 12 months
around 89% of owners who compete in AKC events with their dogs say they are most proud of their dogs accomplishments.
I saw this in the latest issue of Family Dog magazine. Anyway, thought I'd share.
I believe I took part in that survey
AKC does a lot of survey's on their website. They are fun and interesting too.
I didn't know that. I'll have to check it out. Sounds like it would be cool to participate in.Originally Posted by raian

I didn't take the survey, but would have answered yes to all the questions, absolutely.
