From the Paper:

"Pet Pleasers represent 25 percent of pet owners in urban Canada. While all demographic groups are represented in this segment, there tend to be more women who are raising families and living on modest incomes. These pet owners love their pets and rely on them for affection.
"These individuals are true pet lovers who end up having more than one pet, mostly by adopting strays or give-away animals. However, there appears to be an upper limit to what Pet Pleasers can, or will, spend on their pets. A one-off expenditure on a pet that is required by a disease or an accident may be more worrisome to these pet owners; they, therefore, seem to focus on health maintenance in order to provide their animal with a long and happy life. Pet Pleasers rely on the vet for advice, but to a lesser degree than Conscientious Pet Lovers or Pet Humanists, possibly because of the costs involved in a more intense relationship with the vet.
"Pet Pleasers are less likely to use premium brands of food for their pets, though their pet's taste preference is critical to their brand choice. Like Pet Humanists, the Pet Pleasers are more likely to indulge their pets with small gifts and treats."
