This article will explore different benefits that come along with owning either a dog or a cat in order to figure out which pet wins overall. Throughout the article, a running score will be kept with each point, so that you can easily see which pet is the best and why. Here are 14 reasons that answer the age-old question, which are better—dogs or cats?
1) Training? – Point Dogs (Dogs-1, Cats-0)

They are more receptive towards the necessary repetition and reward systems you may use to encourage them to continue. While cats will usually grow bored of learning to do things on command, dogs more often will look forward to having something to do that their owner approves of. Dogs prefer to be driven by a purpose, and learning to perform tasks will fulfill this desire. Not to mention, since you can train your dog well, you can take them with you more and be better able to predict their behavioral response to you.
