Women are more attached to their pets than people, according to a new study, which found female travellers are more likely to miss their canine companions more than their partners, friends or family while on holidays.Skyscanner research found that while 37 percent of men said they would miss their partners most if they were on holidays without them, only 21 percent of woman said they’d miss their partner compared to 37 percent of females who said they miss their favourite pooch first.The canine craze doesn’t end there, with 40 percent of dog owners claiming to have called or texted their dog-sitter to check that their pet is okay, while 14 percent have confessed to actually ‘chatting’ to their dog by phone so it can hear their voice.Although most would think a phone conversation with an animal is strange enough, another five percent of travellers have confessed to having a holiday Skype ‘chat’ with their dog and six percent said they’ve even sent their canine a postcard.According to the study, three percent of travellers have missed their pet so much while they were away that they cut their hard earned holiday short and returned home early.A Skyscanner spokesperson said most pets are seen and treated as part of the family and so it is understandable that they are missed when they aren’t with their owners.“The survey does show that there’s paws for thought as to whether a dog really is man’s best friend, particularly if they know that their partners are missing their dogs more than them when away,’ the spokesperson explained.Source = ETB News: N.J.
