CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A recently published study ranked Charleston among the top 10 most dog-friendly cities in the country.

The study, conducted by Rover and Zillow, found that Charleston is tenth in the nation when it comes to the fastest growing dog-friendly cities.

Antioch, Tennessee was ranked the number one fastest growing dog-friendly city.

The study also found that the majority of dog owners — 72% — would relocate to better accommodate their dogs. 61% of pet owners said that they had already moved to improve their dog’s happiness and wellbeing.

87% of dog owners reported that they would be willing to pay more for a home that is more pet friendly.

According to the study, an increase in pandemic pet ownership is likely one of the reasons behind the growing concern for pet wellbeing.
