Thinking of bringing home a new furry family member this year? Before you sign those adoption papers, be sure you know how much it costs to be a pet parent.
To make things easier, the team at Rover crunched the numbers, did the research, and interviewed experts on our own Dog People Panel to determine the range of costs for pet parents in 2022. Here’s what we learned:
In a survey of Rover dogs, 40% of pet parents in the United Kingdom claim they spend £50-£99 per month on their dog. However, when we dug a little deeper, we found that there’s actually a range of monthly costs. The average canine parent can spend anywhere between £20-£145 per month on their dog. Annually, a dog’s expenses can cost of £230-£1,740. How much you spend varies greatly depending on where you live, your lifestyle, and your unique pet.
