WASHINGTON, D.C. — If you like someone romantically, you better get along with their dog, too, a new survey shows.
The survey was conducted by the dog-walking company Wag!, and it found that four out of five dog owners said their dog’s reaction to a potential partner affects their feelings about the relationship.
Additionally, 86 percent of survey respondents said they would actually break up with a partner who didn't like their dog.
In fact, survey respondents said a potential mate not liking their dog was worse than that person not wanting kids, being a bad tipper, or having bad fashion sense.
“It comes as no surprise to us at Wag! that dog parents place a premium on their dogs’ opinions of other humans and that this plays a deciding factor in their love lives,” said Wag! CEO Hilary Schneider in a statement.
What do you think? Could your dog have this much of an affect on your romantic life?
