Over Half Of Dog and Cat Owners Say That They Spoil Their Pets

I'm going back as a dog in my next life!

Whether they get extra treats or belly rubs, a new toy, long walks or a delicious home-cooked meal, it’s clear that pets have their owners wrapped around their paws.


A recent survey found that two out of three pet owners wish that they could be their dog or cat for a day, as over half say that they spoil their pets.


When asked what they would do if they were their pets for a day, respondents said they would spend their time doing the zoomies and playing outside until they’re exhausted, sleep the day away or simply get cozy and relax in their favourite spot.

The study revealed pets might be the ones who control humans and their routines, especially in the homes of younger generations.


Six in 10 millennial and Gen Z respondents in their 20s said they spoil their pets to no end — celebrating everything from birthdays, Gotcha Days, new toys or an extra treat for simply being adorable. Four in five of the same generation also said they’d like to live a day in their pets’ paws.


We love our pets so much that we will make meals for them from scratch!
