There’s always been this rivalry between cat and dog owners. Some think cats are better and others say the opposite, or you could be an odd ball and like both. It really just depends on the person’s lifestyle and how committed they are. Another thing is what you value within a pet.
An advantage of having a cat is they are lower maintenance. You don’t need to take them on walks or runs to keep them happy. The second advantage being they don’t need training. If you don't have time to teach your dog good behavior, you're going to have a tough time with bad behavior. Cats, on the other hand, naturally do the right thing. The last advantage is they don’t need a yard. They just need a litterbox.
An advantage of having a dog is they are more trainable. Teaching them to do tricks is fun, although it does take some time investment. The second advantage is that dogs are good alarm systems. We should feel safer knowing our dogs will alert us if there are intruders. The last advantage being dogs are great activity partners. You can take them running, hiking, and walking in off-leash areas.
