Do Our Pets Influence Our Choice Of Home?

As a nation of pet lovers, it’s no surprise our beautiful beasts are seen as part of the family, and a recent survey by Strutt & Parker has agreed with this. Their results showed that 94% of pet owners believe their pet’s requirements are important when it comes to choosing a new property, while 52% consider their pet’s requirements to be even more important than those of their children.

It’s now not only school catchment areas, and commuting channels that steer our choices, we are now factoring in the safety & wellbeing of our pets:

  • Is the garden large enough and enclosed?
  • What’s the immediate surrounding area like, is it away from a busy main road?
  • What’s the travelling distance to the local vet?
  • Are there nearby good dog walking places?
  • Do the neighbours have their own beautiful beast, and is it suitable to be in the garden next to yours?

And it’s not just location, location, location when it comes to our pets, the Do Our Pets Influence Our Choice Of Home? 1survey also found that over half of new homeowners felt the reason they needed a larger home was to accommodate their beautiful beasts.  44% responded that the layout was an important consideration, and planned to allocate the extra living space as a play area for their pets.
It’s not too hard to imagine those families with a new puppy choosing a house with good wood flooring, rather than one with new carpet throughout.

With rental properties starting to relax on their pet restrictions, and holiday rentals the same, it’s clear our beautiful beasts have a firm place in our hearts and our homes.

I can’t recommend highly enough

We ordered a lovely new Dogs and Horses collar for our whippet puppy. The price was great, and the collar arrived super quickly – a lot faster than advertised. Packaging was excellent and the after-sales service was great. I can’t recommend highly enough. We will be ordering the next size up from Fletchers, for sure!

The customer service was brilliant

We bought a lovely collar for our Springer spaniel from Fletcher of London. The customer service was brilliant. The wrapping/packaging around the collar was lovely and the collar itself suits our dog so well. We are really pleased with our purchase and would use this company again (the handwritten note and treats were also a lovely touch and much appreciated, thank you)

A fantastic service and wonderful product!

I ordered a beautiful dog bed for my mini schnauzer from Fletcher of London. I decided to call the company to see how the bed would be delivered. Karen couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. The bed arrived the next day and I even had an email letting me know it had been sent. The bed arrived beautifully packaged and in perfect condition just like the photos it’s stunning. A fantastic service and wonderful product!
