Apparently, we lie to our pets AND we feel guilty about it!  Ha!

Almost 40% of people lie to their dogs about going to the vet and instead tell them they’re going to the park.  Oh boy.  Not good.

 

Here is how the guilt breaks down:

57% of pet owners give their pets extra treats in order to make up with them

-55% of pet owners give their pets belly rubs in order to make up with them 

By the way- 70% of pet owners say their pets know when they’re lying to them.
