Maybe this is the reason Fido is man's best friend -- according to a recent poll in Men's Health magazine, 52 percent of guys say they've told their dog a secret they've kept from everyone else.

That gives new meaning to teaching Fido to speak!

I want to know what these secrets are? Maybe don't dig up the body I buried in the backyard? (Just kidding!)

The poll also revealed:

  • Jack is the most popular male name that guys give their pooches.
  • Bella is the most popular female name that they give their dogs.
  • German shepherd is the breed that will most likely attract a date.
  • 37 percent of guys have used their dog as a wing man.

Have you ever told your dog a secret?
