Los Angeles' Most Common Dog Owner Personality Traits

Out of the five most common pet owner personality traits, people in Los Angeles ranked #1 as the most eco-friendly dog owners in the country. Environmental friendliness is a top priority for these dog owners, and that includes making eco-friendly purchases for their pups.

Los Angeles dog owners nearly took the crown for most indulgent because 62% claim they’d get their dog a mani/pedi and the majority (51%) would get their dog a massage, but somewhat surprisingly, Los Angeles came in middle of the pack for likeliness to get their dog professionally groomed, putting them at the #2 spot.

Other things to note:
