It looks like Vancouver doggos are the most pampered — ahem, spoiled — pets in Canada, according to Amazon.ca

The company compiled the number of pet products purchased by residents of each city from August 2016 to August 2017 and ranked them according to sales per capita.

Vancouver nabbed the No.1 spot overall but also for dog items in particular, according to a press release from Amazon.ca. Vancouverites purchased the most toys, treats, grooming products, and accessories in Canada for their lucky pooches.

Edmonton and Calgary ranked second and third, respectively. Burnaby came in fifth and Richmond came in 13th place. Surrey ranked 17th.

Other notable details from the rankings include Winnipeg, where residents spoil their fish with the most filters, heaters, lights, decor, and food in Canada. Also, Burnaby is apparently the most feline-friendly city, with the most grooming and litter-box products purchased.

Sales data was collected for dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, and small animals like hamsters and guinea pigs.
