Owners, Guardians, And Owner-Guardians
This study of U.S. households was conducted to determine if the various groups (“owners,” “guardians,” and “owner-guardians”) differ in their attitudes, beliefs and behaviors with respect to companion animals.
Random samples of U.S. Households, clients of vets and medical clinics were taken to distinguish the differences in attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of “owners,” “guardians,” and “owner-guardians.” The results of the study show that there are statistically significant differences between these groups in their attitudes and behaviors toward their companion animals. However, it is not known whether these differences are due to changes in individuals’ view from the Guardian Campaign or were pre-existing beliefs.
