Blokes pull more often at pub if wingman is a dog – as pooches are ‘sex magnets’

Dogs in pubs are sex magnets for on-the-pull owners.

And, bigger is better as Golden retrievers, German shepherds and Labradors were found to be the best “wingmen” compared to smaller mutts such as chihuahuas, a study has suggested.

The poll found that people were 56% more likely to start talking to a stranger at a bar if they were with a mutt.

Canine behaviour expert Adem Fehmi, known as the “Dogtor”, said: “It’s no surprise that having a dog can boost your chances of meeting a partner and forming a connection – especially in social settings like a pub.

“Dogs are naturally very social and, by their nature, help to bring people together. They are a great way to break the ice in many a social situation.

“With more dog owners than ever, we have seen an increase in people wanting to share experiences with their dogs and make lasting memories together.”

Adem said being a dog owner can “indicate personality attributes such as kindness”.

A spokeswoman for pet care service Rover, which carried out the poll, said: “Man’s best friend is also, in fact, his best wingman.

“On top of sparking conversations between strangers in pubs, they can ignite romantic sparks too.”

Chihuahuas, poodles, Maltese mutts, beagles and King Charles spaniels were found to be the least likely to draw in potential partners.

If dogs don't work, you can always try crab whiskey – yes, you read that right.

A distillery overrun by the one of the "most invasive crab species" known to man has come up with a novel way of dealing with the issue.

Tamworth Distilling in New Hampshire has started selling whiskey made from the little crabs – and is calling it Crab Trapper.

The crustacean-infused alcohol is actually brewed using crab stock made using the green crabs, which is then distilled and turned into the whiskey.

Project developer Will Robinson said: “People are going to hear crab whiskey, and I'd venture to say three-quarters of them are going to go, 'No, absolutely not'.

“But if you can get them to taste it, they totally change their tune for the most part.

“Crab Trapper is made with a bourbon base steeped with a custom crab, corn and spice blend mixture, best likened to a Low Country Boil.

“The crab is present lightly on the nose, accompanied by coriander and bay to smooth out any high notes."

The price of the bottle has not been made public yet, and is only available to buy from the company's on-site shop.
