Posted November 08, 2018 09:14:01Tampa, Florida—A pet on Craigslist could cost you up to $1,200.
According to a study published in the journal Animal Behavior, pets on Craigslist spend an average of $1.5 per hour on grooming and feeding.
The study also found that dogs spend $5 per minute grooming and $2 per minute feeding.
The study surveyed over 2,000 pets and found that the average time spent grooming, grooming, and feeding for pets on the site was 3.9 minutes.
That’s just under 30 seconds per pet.
It took a dog nearly six minutes to complete grooming.
When you combine that time with the cost of cleaning and sanitizing the pets on site, it means that the pet could easily be priced at more than $3,000.
The results also show that dogs are not always the most popular pets on online pet sites.
While dogs are often considered the most fun and adorable pets, dogs are still expensive pets to buy and maintain.
The findings are a testament to the value of pet care, according to an Animal Behavior study co-authored by Jason Geller, a University of Central Florida professor of animal behavior.
“We think it’s very important to realize that pets aren’t disposable,” Geller said.
“They have lives that are worth living and they’re worth spending money on.”
