“We're certainly not surprised the family dog is now on the holiday shopping list,” said Gail Miller, AKC Director of Marketing, “According to our recently released AKC 21st Century Dog Owners Study, which focused on the purchasing habits of dog owners, almost half of the respondents said they plan to celebrate the holidays with their canine companions by giving them toys and treats.”
