 Dogs Score Better in Relationships - New Zealand Survey

While women in New Zealand feel their dogs make better listeners than men, the men think their four-legged mates are more loving, reports a survey.

A Purina survey released today shows 31 percent of female dog owners believe their pets have better listening skills than their partners, and 14 percent of men say their dog gives them more love than their partner.


The survey also revealed that nearly 50 percent of female cat owners share their problems with their feline friend.

And 50 percent even consider themselves as their pet's parent.

"When people find strong companionship and affection in their pets, it is quite normal for them to begin treating their animals as important family members," Stuff.co.nz quoted Purina's pet-care expert Shivaun Statham, as saying.
