You may have seen this post in your newsletter last night; DogTipper crashed shortly after the newsletter went out and the post was lost…so we’re trying it again!
As you know, last week was Tiki’s adoption anniversary, the closest thing we have to her birthday celebration since we really don’t know when she was born. We celebrated by taking Tiki and Irie out to Starbucks for a Puppuccino then lunch at one of their favorite restaurants.
While Tiki’s birthday present was more experiential in nature, many dog lovers purchase presents for their dogs both for birthdays and for holidays. We recently received a fun infographic we wanted to share with you with results from a recent poll conducted by Capital One in the UK. It showed:
- 88% of people admit spending up to £50 on extravagant presents for their pets
- Spending on pet presents has grown by £3 million in the last 2 years
- 27% get their pet spa-style treatments
- 25% of pet owners buy their pets birthday gifts
What about you? Do you purchase your dog a birthday gift or opt for an experience (or both?)
