Many New Zealand women agree their loved pooches are better listeners than their partners, while some men believe their dogs show them more affection, a pet care company survey shows.

A Purina survey released on Monday showed 31 per cent of female dog owners believe their pets have better listening skills than their partners, and 14 per cent of men say their dog gives them more love than their partner.

After interviewing 250 dog owners and 250 cat owners nationwide, the survey also concluded nearly 50 per cent of female cat owners share their problems with their feline friend.

More than 80 per cent of female and male dog or cat owners admit to "cherishing pets", with more than 50 per cent considering themselves a mum or dad to their pets.

Purina's pet-care expert Shivaun Statham said the results mean that pets can become as endearing as a child or a close friend to many owners.

Our first two labs were our first babies followed by three human babies and then followed by two more furry babies.

The boys are definately part of our family. Our son is going to miss them greatly when he leaves home at the end of the year.....he misses them badly enough when he goes up to Forster to work for two weeks over Xmas so he will be devasted when he actually goes to live there.....

Don't see how anyone cannot treat them as part of their family??????

When you consider that dogs especially are never critical and always welcome you home as if you've been gone for a week, regarding them as family comes as no surprise.

I agree with you all...my puppies show so much love to us and everyone who visits...they adopt our friends as their own family and are much loved by them all. Always happy and excited to see us and they always put a smile and a warm fuzzy spot in our hearts whether it's a good or bad day!!

I believe treating a dog as part of the family fits in with their natural instincts, living in a pack in the wild. I feel so sad for dogs who are always left in the backyard on their own and never seem to get any attention from anyone.

Marvils of modern science Titch,,,Press ''Delete''...and ''whamo''...shes gone...lol

Both weigh in at 4kg......so, not overly big compared with your big fello

They both travel well together (even came from NZ in the same crate with a dividing wall)....
We often take snoops (the dam cat) with us camping....Avis has her in a 'Rabbit' brace so she can't shoot off.
