Sites like PetsDating.com and YouMustLoveDogsDating.com connect dog owners to mates.
Many of the sites encourage users to bring their dogs on first dates to break the ice or size up their canine chemistry as a couple.
The dog-focused dating site, YouMustLoveDogsDating.com, started up just last year, and now it has 2 million members.
Critics say that focusing on a canine connection only adds an extra hurdle to finding love, making it harder to find someone because of the added issues.
