A Telephone Survey on Attitudes of Pet Owners and Non-Owners to Dogs and Cats in Belgian Cities

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


A telephone survey was carried out in three Belgian cities: Brussels, Ghent, and Liege. In order to analyze aspects of the coexistence between human beings and pets, 600 persons, including an equal number of owners and non-owners, were interviewed to determine reasons for pet ownership and problems associated with the presence of pets. Two districts from each city were included in the sample. Districts were selected based on type of residence (e.g. apartments, single family homes) and amount of open space. Results suggest that dogs and cats play an important role in everyday life for many people and cause relatively little inconvenience.
