Precious Pets

Here in the United Kingdom, it’s no secret that we are a nation of animal lovers.  There is an estimated 51 million pets residing in homes across the UK. Considering that the UK has a population of 66 million, that means there is more than one pet in every other home across the nation – but what is the most sought-after pet in Britain?

Petplan’s 2018 Pet Census

The largest pet ownership census to date, provides unrivalled insight into the UK’s pet-owning households and their furry friends. In celebration of National Pet Month, Petplan takes a look at which pet reigns supreme in the (United) Animal Kingdom.

Man’s Best Friend

Using insights from over 60,000 UK pet owners, our 2018 Pet Census has unearthed that Britain’s favourite pet is the dog.  Winning by a landslide. 67% of our Census respondents were dog owners, though this may come as no surprise due to the long-standing and legendary human-canine bond.

Delving further into pooch popularity, the Labrador Retriever (12%) is top of the charts as the most common canine in UK households, appreciated for its warm, friendly temperament and loyal nature.

Coming in at second place on the pet popularity scale is cats, with 45% of our Census respondents being feline fans. The top kitty of choice is the Moggy (51%), followed by the British Shorthair (24%).

Surprisingly, third place was fish at 9%, closely followed by pets, such as rabbits, horses, reptiles, rodents and birds.  These all averaged between 4% and 2%. However, a significant number of pet owners have more than one type of pet.   31% owning both a dog and a cat, and 84% of horse owners owning at least one dog.
