Everyone knows that dogs are man’s best friend. They are very helpful to humans. They prove to be great companions, as well as very good guardians. They can be both our companions and our protectors. This is why most people believe that they make better pets than cats. Here are are many reasons why dogs are better than cats as pets.

To begin with, dogs are associated with safety. This is mainly due to their acute sense of hearing and impressive sense of smell. Having a dog as a pet is like having a 24-hour security guard in your house. They guard you and your house even when you are asleep. If they feel that something is wrong, they start barking and make you aware of that’s wrong. Anyone who has a pet dog in their house feels safer. This is unlikely to happen if you have a pet cat.

Dogs tend to be more loyal and caring pets than cats. A dog understands you and your emotions very well. Whenever you’re not feeling well, you can vent to your dog. They are wonderful listeners. They will listen attentively to everything you say. Hell also try to give you comfort and make you feel better. On the other hand, a cat neither understands you nor is bothered about the way you feel.

Another reason why dogs are better than cats as pets is because dogs are smarter. It is far easier to train a dog than a cat. They have the ability to learn tricks and commands very fast. Once trained, a dog can help you enough to even bring your slippers or fetch the paper if you ask him to. A cat, on the other hand, won’t be as obedient as they tend to be arrogant.

Dogs love their owners wholeheartedly. They cannot see anyone harming them. They will begin wagging their tails when someone approaches their owners. Since they are very loyal, they would go to any extent to protect their owners. However, if you have a cat as a pet do not expect it to do the same. Cats would usually try to hide away.

All of these reasons prove that dogs are a better choice of pet. Cats simply are not that fun. You can’t do nearly as much as you can with a cat than with a dog. Dog’s are a guy’s best friend for all of the reasons we mentioned. So the next time you are thinking about getting a pet, consider a dog over a cat.
