Happy National Dog Day!

Today, August 26th, is National Dog Day!

To celebrate National Today took a survey of 3,000 Americans to ask them their opinions on dogs. Turns out that South Carolina is NOT one of the top ten dogs states. The top state is California, where 86% of people say they love dogs. The worst state for our furry four-legged friends is Nebraska where only 48% of people are dog lovers. 66% of people here in the Palmetto State say they love dogs.

Among some of the survey's other findings:

  • 86% of dog owners tell their dog "I love you" at least once a month.
  • 68% sometimes let their dog sleep with them in bed.
  • 39% of women and 23% of men with dogs would rather hang out at home with them than go on a date.
