Vancouver home to Canada’s most pampered pets, according to Amazon

The city of Vancouver has the most pampered pets in Canada, according to data released by Amazon.ca.

Amazon’s fifth annual pampered pets list was compiled using sales data for pet related items from Amazon.ca from August 2016 to August 2017 on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents. 

Sales data was collected from products for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles and small animals.

Along with Vancouver at No. 1, three other Lower Mainland centres — Burnaby (5), Richmond (13) and Surrey (17) — cracked Amazon’s list of top 20 most pampered pets cities in Canada.

According to Amazon, Vancouver has the most mollycoddled mutts.

“The city of Vancouver was top dog in the pooches’ category, purchasing the most accessories, grooming products, toys and treats,” Amazon said in a release.

Burnaby, meanwhile, has the most pampered cats in the country.

“Not only did Burnaby make its return to the top 20 this year after falling out last year, but residents ranked the highest in purchases for cat products. From beds to grooming to litter, they were all about the cattitude this year,” the release said.

Vancouver also ranked first in the small animals category as well, which includes products for everything from guinea pigs to hamsters.
