Dog owners are three times as attractive as can owners, according to a new survey.

A total of 63 per cent of the 1,000 single Britons questioned said that a date with a dog owner was more appealing than a night out with someone who owned a cat.

Indeed, rabbits were more attractive than moggies, with 19 per cent of respondents preferring the prospect of a date with a floppy-eared carrot-chomper as housemate to one with a feline companion.

A canine chum was seen as a selling point in the survey for dating website Elite Singles - 57 per cent reckoned ownership of a pet made someone ‘more dateable’ - and that nearly one third would break off the relationship if the prospective partner and animal didn’t get along.

Elite Singles’ psychologist Salama Marine said: “Raising animals requires a lot of commitment and dedication - so singles with pets are often perceived to be kind, friendly… and ready to commit to a long term relationship.”
