It’s National Pet Day! Here Are the Top 10 Most Popular Pets in the United States.
Today (4/11/22) is National Pet Day! A recent poll found dogs are the most popular pet in America.
According to the poll, the Top 10 most popular pets in the U.S. are:
- hamsters, gerbils, and mice
- guinea pigs
- tarantulas (they got 1% of the vote)
The top ways we celebrate our pets on National Pet Day are by giving them a special treat or just telling them we love them.
10% of people even say their pet is their best friend.
One reason dogs are our favorite is we feel so connected to them.
A separate poll found over 70% of dog owners feel like they know what their dog is thinking at any given moment.
The survey also asked people to describe their dog in a single word.
The top ten words are: Loving . . . playful . . . intelligent . . . loyal . . . protective . . . gentle . . . affectionate . . . obedient . . . brave . . . and high-energy.
