Dogs are better then cats
Debate Rounds (3)
Dogs are also companions; some for the visually impaired and others just for lonely people. Dogs are also in the criminal fields, this meaning that they are used in the K-9 unit to sniff out drugs such as marijuana.
Now I don't know about you, but I have never seen a cat do some of the amazing things that dogs have done in our history.
My big reason why I believe that dogs are better then cats is because dogs help so many people with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) which is something that happens to someone after, say a terrible event. An example of PTSD would be say a veteran of WWII, let's say this veteran was on the front lines for the US and they were helping save people from concentration camps. That veteran might get PTSD because of the things that they saw while during the war. Many veterans are often granted with dogs, given to them by many charity organizations, one charity being the WWP (Wounded Warriors Project). These dogs would then help the veteran get through the traumatic event. But not just veterans get PTSD, many other people and get PTSD, such as police officers, firefighters, or just normal people. Dogs also help people with depression and disabilities. Honestly I've never seen a seeing eye cat.
Also, Hundreds of rulers through history have had dogs as pets, for like a status symbol. Dogs are also very effective for being guard dogs. My littlest dogs (a 10 pound Jack Russell Terrier) is still an amazing guard dog even though he isn't big. He freaks out when I just walk down the stairs. My step-dad has had many guard dogs when he was running his shipping business.
That is why I believe dogs are better then cats because they are both great companions and amazing at many other things.
