There are many benefits to owning a pet. They provide a human with companionship and responsibility. However, they can also be a lot of work. Pets require food, water, shelter, medical services, training and even socialization. Sometimes the company of a human is not enough for the pet. They often require additional companionship in the form of another pet dog. This is why dog parks and dog day care services exist. They also provide pet owners with a boarding place for the day, when they must work for long hours.
Most dog owners, 59% have just one dog. It is likely that this one dog is entertained and well taken care of when you, the human owner is present. However, what about all of those hours when you are away at work or running errands? The dog is locked up and does not receive any socialization. Owning a second dog is an option, but it also increases the responsibility of the human owner. According to the AAHA study in 2000, 44% of participating pet guardians acquired an animal simply to keep another animal company. Even with a second pet, a human owner may feel that their pets are not receiving enough attention and may choose to find a way for them to interact with other animals.
A dating site for dogs is an interesting concept. When people are lonely, they often join some type of a dating site for companionship. They may join it with the intention of finding a date or a spouse or they may join it simply for the human interaction, someone to participate in activities and events with. The same concept goes for a pet dating site. Pets that are lonely when their human owner is not around could benefit from the interaction with other pets. Dog playdates allow humans to get their pets together and to allow them to interact with one another. A dog playdate is especially beneficial to a puppy that is learning how to interact with other pets, and will need to be trained on how to socialize and engage with other types of animals.
According to a 2000 study by the Lakewood, Colorado based American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), 75% of surveyed pet owners feel guilty about leaving their animals at home when they go to work. A dog dating site can allow the owner to feel more comfortable by allowing them to engage in dog interaction once they get home, or by hiring another pet owner to bring their pets to socialize with your pet. This interaction is not only good for your comfort while at work, but is also good for your pet.
Many Americans own pets. They feed them, provide them with water and other necessary medical costs and they train them. They spend a lot of time with them, but often feel guilty when they are at work for long hours of the day. The dog is left to entertain itself at home. Many pet owners will get a second pet for these reasons, but allowing your pets to interact with different types of breeds and animals is more beneficial. Dog dating sites allow you to choose the pets and the pet owners that you decide to interact your pet with.
