New York City residents have an average of three dogs at home, according to a new survey.
The survey, conducted by The Hill and The Hill Institute, found that of those surveyed, 58 percent of New Yorkers knew where their pet was.
The poll found that the most common pet owners are men, age 45 to 64.
Only 29 percent of women said they knew where a pet was at home.
The Hill says it found that women are more likely than men to live with a dog, and that women, like men, are more comfortable using their pets to interact with people and strangers.
The survey found that 54 percent of respondents have an outdoor dog in their home, with a pet occupying a second or third position.
More than a third of respondents live in a neighborhood with a large number of pets.
The study surveyed more than 3,000 New Yorkers, with the margin of error at 4.6 percent.
