Have you ever caught yourself talking to your pet?
Have you ever reviewed a list of your best friends
and realized your pet was at the top? Is your pet
influential in your life? Does your pet cultivate
family relationships and add emotional stability?
These are just a few of the questions represented
within this power of pets research. This research
was designed to explore these very questions as well
as the importance a pet can have on someone’s life,
including ways a pet affects the relationships an
individual has with other family members. In this
research the opinions of pet owners are reviewed,
they are asked whether they feel their pet(s) love
them, if they consider their pet(s) family members,
if their pet(s) is their best friend and if they
view their pet as a relief of distress. The results
of this study showed that pets are an important
aspect to people and their families. In several
cases people explained that their pet represented
another “family member,” a “sister or brother” and
that they encouraged family bonding, and often acted
as a protector.
