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.
