UK Pet Owners Spend Almost 1 Billion Pounds on Clothes For Their Pets!
After seeing all the fab entries to our Trendy pets competition, we decided to find out how much pet owners spend on dressing their beloved pets in the latest fashions.
The findings were really surprising: although only 37% of our survey respondents admitted to dressing their pets up, 23% of those who indulge their pets' sartorial side spend between £10-£30 a year. Just 10% spend £30-£50 a year, while less than 5% admitted to spending between £50 and £200 a year on animal attire.
We found that the most popular pets by far are dogs, with over 80% of respondents saying that they have a pet pooch.
30% of pets owners think that their pet does not enjoy being dressed up, while 36% say that their pet enjoys being dressed up as much as they do, with 22% of pets having refused to wear the outfits their owners picked.
We also found that the most popular occasions for dressing up pets are Christmas and Halloween.
After doing some sums, we found out that UK pet owners spend an average of almost 820,000,000 per year on clothes for their stylish pets.
