All we know that our four-legged pals (dogs) are the best and loyal friends of the man and anyone with a dog can tell you that having a dog is basically a one-way ticket to Relationship Island. But what about women? Is there any bond between dogs and women?

According to a study by UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, there is a psychological relationship between women and their pets. The dog tends to be the anchor of support when family members are not available either physically or emotionally. The study also reveals that women living entirely alone with a dog are significantly less lonely than those living without a pet. Also when women are in a crisis situation, their dogs can be their only source of comfort and affection.

One funny fact is the bond women have with their pets can determine where women live and what cars they drive. Women have chosen to move to homes based on their needs of their pets. For example: one woman turned to his husband and said, “I need an SUV to lug my 100lb dog around because I can’t put my dog in your car!”

But there is one important fact you must know and it`s specially for you guys!

Guys, if you’re dating a girl who loves her dog,  you could better be prepared to like that dog. According to new research, a woman is more satisfied in her relationship when her partner feels the same about her pet as she does. If she’s close to her dog , he`d better be, too.

So, in a few words. If you see a woman jogging or running in the park with her dog and you want to flirt with her, please try to be polite with her dog, show some affection and of course be a gentleman with the girl.
