Dogs are the best pet to own.

32 people have died form a fatal dog attacks in the year of 2013. Annual data from 2013 shows that 56% (18) of the fatality victims were children 7-years and younger, and 44% (14) were adults, 25-years and older. Of the total children killed by dogs in 2013, 61% (11) were ages 4-years and younger. therefor the idea that dogs are the best pet is invalid. Now i assume there has been people that have bee killed by household cats or hamsters but i have yet to find any evidence about this. but there are many animals better than a dog as a pet for your household

Dogs are simply not the best pet to have. yes they are loving beautiful animals but they cannot and will not ever be the best.
Best is defined as most excellently or suitably; with most advantage or success: my opponent has yet to find any data on this topic. Also you keep stating opinions, these are not facts you are stating, of course a good dog will be good that why its called a good dog but that good dog might not good to another because it is an opinion. but what is a fact is that dog bites occur every 75 seconds in the United States. Each day, over 1,000 citizens need emergency medical care to treat these injuries.(http://www.dogsbite.org......) To me that not very good dog because that 1152 bites a day and 420480 dog bites a year... that sounds like a really good dog...not. i will not bring anymore evidence this round so thanks and vote con

Blame the owner of the dog, not the dog itself. The dog doesn't know that its illegal to kill someone.

yes but this debate is about the best pet to own not if their all bad or not. so this is very valid because a goldfish or hamster has not killed anybody from the research i have done.

yes and black people have a higher percentage of crime and murder, are they all bad too? it isn't valid to use the acts of the few to judge many.
