We recently polled 2,000 Brits as part of our Dog Walking Index to find out about the habits of UK dog owners and the research that came back was pretty interesting!
Here’s what we found out about the Britain’s dog lovers:
25% of UK households look after the 8.5 million domestic dogs here in the UK, with 85% believing their dog has increased their fitness levels and helped them to appreciate the great outdoors. Fantastic news!
Mountain Warehouse’s Founder, Mark Neale said, “As the proud owner of a Shar Pei named Ray whom I walk every morning, I can relate to some of these findings first hand. Many of our customers are dog walkers who have been caught short in the unpredictable British weather, who come to us looking for anything that will keep them warm and dry. Understanding their needs is really important to us so we can help them (and their dogs) to get outdoors whatever the weather.”
So reach for the lead and get outside to help improve your fitness as well as your four-legged friend’s!
