Do you show your pet more love than even your human partner? You are not alone! According to the first annual Petcube pet love Valentine’s Day survey, 84% of pet owners consider their pet the love of their life! And at least  54% plan to buy their fur-babies a present this Valentine’s Day!

This  fact also squares with the “big data” from retailers. Of the $19.7 billion spent on Valentine’s Day gifts in 2016, $681 million went to pets, according to the National Retail Foundation.

This year’s pet love survey also indicated the larger role pets play in relationships:

76% of people find a romantic partner more attractive if they’re pet friendly
9% have broken up with a partner over a pet
25% of people have taken their pet on a date
The survey also looked at how pet parents show love to their fur-babies, namely:

91% of users tell their pets they love them Top ways pet parents show their pets love: 96% pet them, 96% play with them, and 91% give them treats
32% of people kiss their pet on the lips
73% of users show affection via Petcube by talking and playing with pets remotely

Furthermore, the survey also showed strong support for adoption today. 76% of respondents adopted their pets. Petcube actively supports a number of rescue and shelter organizations to increase awareness and adoption of pets in need of a forever home. Through the Petcube App, users can interact and play with real pets, whether their own or with publicly available shelter and rescue pets. There was a total of 4,571 hours of public playtime with shelter pets via the Petcube App in 2016.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Petcube is running a limited time promotion on its Petcube Play, now on sale for $179 through February 17th. A great way to spend the entire Valentine’s Day with your pet eve  if you have stuck in your office.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
