Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and love is in the air. At Petcube, we believe that some of the most cherished and enduring relationships are between people and their pets.
How many pet parents give more affection to their pets than their partners? How many and what pets do they have? Do they consider their romantic partner more attractive if they like pets or have a pet? Have they ever broken up with someone over a pet?
We conducted a survey and discovered all this and much more. Read on and spread the love!
According to Petcube's responders, the most popular ways to show their pets that they love them are to pet them, play with them, and give them treats.

Moreover, almost 45% of our responders said they had adopted their pets through a rescue or shelter. On a day full of love and hugs and kisses, please remember that by adopting, you are giving a second chance to a pet that might not have had the opportunity otherwise. You can also give a loving home to an animal that may have been abandoned or neglected.
This year’s pet love survey indicated the huge roles pets play in our lives and relationships:
- 67% of people find a romantic partner more attractive if they’re pet-friendly;
- 9% have broken up with a partner over a pet;
- 21% of people have taken their pet on a date;
- 88% of people give more affection and kisses to their pet (rather than a significant other) on a daily basis;
- 43% of people plan to buy Valentine’s gifts for their pets compared to 42% who plan to buy them for their significant others.

A Petcube Bites 2 Lite treat tossing camera can be a great way to show your pet you love them by allowing you to interact with them remotely and give them treats. Here are some ways to use it:
Schedule treat times: Use the app to set up a schedule for treat times throughout the day. This helps your pet look forward to receiving treats and create a routine that they enjoy.
