Women talk to dogs more than their partners

One in five women spend more time talking to their pets than their partners, a survey of 2,000 female dog owners in Britain has found.

They also take time off work to look after their poorly dogs and even leave the radio or television on for them, Daily Mail reported on Tuesday quoting the study.

A survey in Welsh, Scots, revealed that 18 per cent chat to their dogs more frequently than their husbands or boyfriends.

Forty-two percent have taken time off work to nurse sick animals and 34 per cent leave the radio or television set on to keep their pets company.

Favourite shows are EastEnders , watched by 41 per cent of owners because their dogs like it, and the Chris Moyles show on BBC Radio 1, the Mail said quoting the study.

Richard Rockett, from dog food specialist Burgess Supadog Sensitive – which carried out the poll – said: “We share everything with our dogs, from our favourite television programme to musical preferences, and we’re not afraid of showing real affection for our favourite companion.”
