A recently completed "puppology" survey of 1,450 puppy owners in the UK found that an astonishing 95 percent of the respondents were more likely to give their puppies a cuddle at the end of a long day than their partners or friends! The survey set out to see whether new pet owners understood the huge benefits that rewards, hugs, and affection can have during training. Regardless of the motivation behind the snuggles, I'm so fascinated by their results that I'm going to recreate that survey, PetSugar-style. Let me know who gets more hugs in your family – the people or the pets!
