10 Reasons Dogs Are Better Than Cats

I have made it no secret that I am by far more a ‘cat person‘ than a ‘dog person’. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate all the cute, awesome and cool things that make dogs loveable as well.

Since, I am trying to see both sides of the coin, I started thinking about our “man’s best friend” to see if I could come up with any reasons why they may be better than a cat. It was hard, if I’m being honest because I just don’t see how anything can come close to the awesomeness that is a cat, but I did come up with some reasons.

Click through to read 10 reasons why dogs are better than cats:

    Dogs are really good at protecting you. Whether it be from a fire, a thief any other harm, dogs will be there. Cats just look after themselves.

  • They Think They Are Human 8 of 10

  • You Can Train Them 9 of 10
    You Can Train Them
    You can train a dog to sit, roll over, play fetch and more fun things. Cats don't care what you want them to do.

  • They Don’t Usually Sit on your Stuff 10 of 10
    They Don't Usually Sit on your Stuff
    Dogs love to climb up on your lap and cuddle, but they are no where as annoying as cats are. Cats will sit on anything that has your attention where dogs are usually more respectful.
