Did you know that humans have kept pets for longer than you might expect – our best friend, the dog, was first domesticated 33,000 years ago. Today, almost half of all UK households (around 12 million) have pets, with a pet population of around 58 million, according to the Pet Food Manufacturers Association's Pet Population Report1 in 2015. On average, UK dogs are walked 7.5 hours per week.

If the nations 8.5 million dogs* are walked at 3mph, that means...  ... the distance covered in a week is equal to going to the moon and back 400 times.
