According to the recent survey carried out on behalf of UrbanPup.com, of the 1,068 dog owners questioned, an astonishing 70% are planning to spend the day doing their pets favourite things – such as a trip to the beach or long walks in countryside, which is just aswell as 18% will receive a specially prepared meal on the day.

Denis Kelly, owner of pet fashion retailer UrbanPup.com offered his thoughts on the findings: “We’ve known for years that dog owners really do cherish their pets and these findings show just that. Over 61% of the owners spoken to said the best thing about owning a dog is the unconditional love and so owners might be taking a day out to show just how much their pet means to them but they feel it’s reciprocated day after day by the love and companionship their pets show them.”

23% of Britain’s dogs will receive special gifts bought especially for them to celebrate Valentine’s Day costing on average £10 however a lucky 4% will have gifts worth more than £100 waiting for them to open on the special day.

So, the question is:- would you spend more money on your dog than your partner? Do you think we are in danger of spoiling our dogs too much? Have your say below…
