It has been a classic debate for many years: Which is a better pet, a dog or a cat? Let me ask you something. If a burglar entered your house, what would a cat do? It would probably not do anything to deter the unwelcome guest. But, if someone broke into your house a dog would probably start barking to get your attention and might even attack the intruder. A dog’s instincts could save you and your family from harm and loss of possessions. I believe that dogs are better pets than cats because they are wonderful companions, useful when taught tricks, and can help their owners have a healthier lifestyle.
