According to a new survey, if you like someone romantically you better get along with their dog, too.

The survey was conducted by the dog-walking company Wag!, WJLA reports. It found that four out of five dog owners said their dog’s reaction to a potential partner affects their feelings about the relationship.

Additionally, 86% of survey participants said they would actually break up with a partner who didn't like their dog, saying a potential mate not liking their dog was worse than that person not wanting kids, being a bad tipper or having bad fashion sense.

Wag! CEO Hilary Schneider said, “It comes as no surprise to us at Wag! that dog parents place a premium on their dogs’ opinions of other humans and that this plays a deciding factor in their love lives.”
