How many people in the UK have a dog?

We are raising awareness for all the woofs out there; for the droolers, the bed hogs and the 5am barkers!

There are 8.9 million pet dogs in the UK with 24% of the UK’s adult population owning one – almost a quarter! The UK ranks as the 2nd highest dog nation in Europe and is notoriously one of the world’s most dog-loving nations.


With this prestigious, but unofficial, title, its up to us to make sure that we keep our dogs in the best health. From six-month check-ups and annual vaccinations to regular nail trims, our dogs rely on us to keep them safe and well.
