They may well be our best friend, but their behaviour can cost us thousands. Research released by Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, has revealed that dogs with problem behaviours cost the average North West dog owner £335.88 a year, equating to £4030.56 over the average dog’s lifetime. Shoes topped that list, with 58 per cent of dog owners in the North West replacing at least one pair of shoes a month.

Nearly a third of dog owners identified that their dogs displayed destructive behaviour when left alone. The charity is urging dog owners to consider getting their beloved animals trained to improve behaviour.
