When Joanie Pelzer signed up with a dog-friendly online dating service a few years ago, she was honest about her Chihuahua — he likes people more than other dogs, craves attention, steals food and can't stand to ride in the backseat of a car.

The rational side of his brain acknowledged that of course, not ALL women with dogs place an unnaturally high priority on the dog in their life.But the emotional side of his brain had been hurt and wanted to protect him from being exposed to any additional dog-crazy women.“It just clicked when my ex left with her dog: I told myself I had to do something to help people like myself who absolutely love their dogs.” As with any typical dating site, the user creates his or her profile, except You Must Love Dogs Dating includes the user’s dog’s profile as well.This allows the user to share the dog’s history in addition to the types of dogs both human and canine get along with best.
