August 30th was National Holistic Pet Day and Halo asked over 750 pet parents’ questions about natural food, regular exercise and animal advocacy.
Before taking the survey, less than 6% of participants had ever heard of National Holistic Pet Day, so it’s exciting to see that holistic education is underway! To celebrate, Halo is awarding $100 prize of Halo products to one lucky participant.
Here are some of the results:
• Ellen DeGeneres was cited by a whopping 75% of pet parents as “the best role model” for the holiday. Betty White also made a strong showing with 12%, with Marley (from Marley and me) also getting votes. Even though Hulk Hogan and Regis Philbin are noted animal lovers, they didn’t get any votes here. Top write-in celebrities included Jane Goodall, Mimi Ausland from Freekibble.com and Alicia Silverstone.
• Providing regular exercise and all natural food are the top-two pet parent behaviors for promoting holistic well being, cited by 79% and 75% respectively. Among dog parents, 86% cited regular exercise.
