Do dogs or cats make better companions?
Debate Rounds (3)
1.They are more loyal.
I heard stories of dogs sacrificing their lives to save their owner. So they are more loyal. And I have not heard any stories of cats being loyal. Cats are so independent, that they might not even need anybody.
2.Dogs can be taught tricks more easily than cats
Dogs can be taught tricks more easily than cats because if you try to teach a cat, they are most likely to scratch you ,just walk away or both. most dogs do try to learn the trick you are trying to teach them unlike most cats.
3.Dogs keep you fit.
You have to take them for a walk everyday. And walking dogs outdoors will help you to keep you fit and give you fresh air. Have you seen anyone walking a cat?
4.Dogs can be police dogs, fire dogs and guard dogs and maybe more.
Dogs can be trained to be many things. There is no such thing as a police cat, fire cat, or a guard cat.
5.Dog's sniffing skills can come in useful
Dogs are good at sniffing, and they can help you look for your things using their sniffing skills. Police dogs can even sniff out drugs.
So dogs make better companions than cats.
I think dogs act more human than cats. But as cost/benefit analysis of how much trouble your pet is, as compared to how good a companion it is, I think cats are every bit as good as dogs. Between a good cat and a good dog, I'm pretty agnostic about the difference.
I don't think you can say dogs are better companions than cats. I think it's more like you must be more of a companion to a dog than you are to a cat. Dogs are far more high maintenance. They need people who have the time.
