Are Men Sexier if They Own A Dog?


When a woman meets a man for the first time she may be attracted by his looks or his attitude or a whole list of other things. There are many different attributes that women find endearing in a man and if the man owns a dog it is like an instant signal to a woman that many of these attributes are present. This of course makes a man instantly sexier or more attractive to the woman as a result.


If a man owns a dog it tells a woman that he is dependable. Look at it from this point of view: a dog relies on his owner to care for him and supply all his needs from feeding and walking to health care. It stands to reason in the minds of most women that if a dog can rely on this person for such things then they are most likely dependable in other areas of their lives as well. This one attribute tends to make a man who owns a dog much more desirable than one who does not.


Dependability and responsibility pretty much go hand in hand but being dependable does not necessarily always mean that you are responsible. On the other hand if you are a man that owns a dog then the chances that you are responsible as well as dependable are significantly higher. After all, there is a lot of responsibility that comes with owning a dog. Some of these responsibilities include feeding, walking and grooming and those are just the easy ones that automatically come to a person’s mind when they think about owning a dog. That doesn’t count the responsibility a dog owner has to show his dog the needed attention to ensure that he grows into a well-behaved animal.


Every woman wants a man that can demonstrate understanding, especially in drastic circumstances. A man that owns a dog sends a signal that he can demonstrate understanding of not only the little things, but bigger things as well. Consider this, if a man owns a dog, then chances are good that during the course of raising that dog there have been or will be more than a few accidents and some of them may not be minor ones. If a man can demonstrate understanding in cases of his dog’s accidents then it is likely that he will demonstrate even more understanding in his human relationships as a result.



A man that can show love is one of the sexiest men alive in the eyes of a woman. Every woman wants a man that has the capacity to love and owning a dog is a classic example of someone that is able to not only receive love but to give it as well. In order to raise a dog it requires not only love but nurturing as well and in the eyes of a woman any man that has the ability to nurture and love another living creature is quite sexy indeed. If the dog is a mutt that has been rescued from a bad situation or even the pound, then that increases the man’s level of desirability and sex appeal even more in the eyes of most women as well.

If you stop and think about things from a woman’s point of view then it is not really all that difficult to understand why they consider a man who owns a dog to be sexier than one who does not. Owning a dog says a lot about a man and these are just a few of the things that a woman may notice outright about a man that owns a dog. Dependability, responsibility, understanding and the capacity to love are really just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. There are many more qualities that can be attributed to a man that owns a dog that probably just haven’t been thought of yet.

Even a woman that is not a dog lover can appreciate the special qualities that can be found in a man that owns a dog. In many cases this may even bring the woman to become a dog lover herself or at least appreciate the type of man it takes to nurture and love such a small and helpless creature.
