  1. Glad to see the importance of time outdoors in so many lives.

    1. Time outdoors is a funny thing - seems unimportant, but it is. I know the amazing direct healing effect it had on Jasmine.

  2. I think I agree with a good 90% of the results. The areas in which I do not agree are only off a tiny bit. I may think most everything is extremely important though lol

    1. These items are not as clear-cut, plus I sneaked on in which can be highly debatable.

  3. The surveys are such a great idea and an interesting read. I'm a little surprised by some of the results where "important" scored higher than "very important." Specifically training and socialisation.

    1. Yes, this is an interesting exercise for sure.

  4. It's interesting to read I wonder how the results would change depending on who you were surveying. I'm glad outdoors and socialization scored so well!

    1. Demographic would certainly had a huge impact on results.

  5. I wish the socialisation was at 100%. We have a reactive dog across the back and he has been the source of numerous local complaints. Training and socialistion would mean he didn't yell which is a shame. he's not a bad dog *sigh*

    We also think the supplements should be a bigger issue for pet owners. I have seen how tremendous they can be, and the difference they can make to a dog or cat. Three cheers for supplements I say.

    1. I will write my thoughts on each of the subjects again. Supplements is a tricky subject which should be highly individual based on many factors. Socialization is very poorly understood.

  6. I wanna know who thinks training is not important. SMH. Glad that most people seem to have the right idea on most of these topics

  7. I agree mostly with the results. Mr. N votes for more outdoor time and less time spent on grooming and nails!

  8. These are very interesting results. I'd be interested in seeing the background of the folks answering.

  9. Overall looks like the majority of folks give high or somewhat high priority to all areas,however I honestly never thought about supplements. As a cat mom I never thought about supplements until my cat got ill, however after being older and wiser, I can see the importance. Any bit to help maximize health of our pets is a win.

    1. Supplements is a tricky area. I will write up my thoughts on that.

  10. I would have had a good time answering these polls. Some of these just make me really question why people chose the answer they chose and their reasoning. I would definitely learn something by their way of thinking, for example the time outdoors and especially the training one!
