Why dogs are better than cats? This is an interesting question. For the fun of it, let's just see some reasons why the dogs beat the cats when it comes to providing the right companionship for man.
1. You don't have to worry about litter boxes!
I love cats no doubts about that, but I hate the sight of litter boxes with passion. No matter how hard you try to keep things tidy, the litter box must have an offensive smell. To me, one of the major negatives of owning a cat is having to put up with the litter box, especially if you live in a very small house. With dogs, you don't need any litter box.
2. Dogs only want to have fun.
I'm not trying to say that cats are not playful, no, but they are nowhere as playful as dogs. There are limits when it comes to playing with your cat, but with dogs, the fun continues and can take very many different turns. With dogs, there is never a dull moment because you can train your dog to join you in so many games.
3. More control and less destruction.
Cats are more difficult to control. They go where they please, scratch where they fancy, jump where they like and mark whatever they feel like leaving a mark on thereby causing a whole lot of damages. But with dogs, you can train them to stay where you want them to stay at all times.
4. It is easier to train dogs.
Training your cat to live as you dictate can be quite frustrating. Cats have the trait of doing whatsoever they feel like doing whenever they feel like doing it. Dogs like being trained, but cats will always get bored and leave you to continue the training without him. Some people say cats train people, people don't train cats.
5. Dogs are good protectors.
Any day you see a cat breed defending a home and warding off vandals and trespassers, let me know so I can get one of those. Dogs are the perfect security officers who guard you and your home without expecting any monthly paycheck. The cat is not endowed with this virtue.
6. There are more choices and options with dogs.
Dogs are known to come in different sizes and shapes, a feature that cannot be found in cats… With dogs, you can't run out of options when it comes to shapes and sizes. From the giant German shepherd to the tiny Teacup Puppy, you get to choose the size and shape you love.
There could be more reasons, but I think these 6 essential reasons are enough for your roommate.
