I think my canine makes *me* a more bearable partner for my husband, lol! We're pretty independent and while I spend a lot of time training and traveling for dog events, my husband is also involved in several things I could not care less about (he plays soccer, basketball, and softball, works out with a co-worker, and coaches middle school sports). My dog is no burden on him (I do ALL of the training, feeding, basic care, cleaning up the messes, arranging dog sitting, etc) and gives us both a chance to do the things we love that the other doesn't want to do.
