It all depends on your lifestyle, personality and what roll you want a pet to play in your life. It also depends on the pet. Some dogs are very laid back by nature and some cats are high energy.

A pet is just like having a child. If you are a working individual that won't have the time to care for your pet, then a cat would be better than a dog. Most cats are inclined to be indoors, where as a dog can develop separation anxiety if left alone for long periods of time without mental and physical stimulation. Dogs need to be taken out for walks at least twice a day in order to stay happy and healthy. Cats, on the other hand, are usually more laid back and as long as you have a sofa or window sill they are pretty much content.

Are you prepared to walk and play with a dog before work and after coming home? Will you mind having to make a litter box is kept clean?

In a nutshell:

  • Dogs will make better pets if you want a pet that you can take for walks and go places with and play with.
  • Cats are good pets if you want a pet that is easier to care for, and likes to settle on your lap and sleep.

So overall I would say cats are better for the more relaxed, laid back people and dogs are more for the fun, outdoorsy never-out-of-energy people. No animal is really a better pet for all people, but a better type for you individually.
I think dogs but my sister thinks cats

Dogs make better pets as they are more loyal and fun to play with, hard to get a cat to fetch a stick for you !

Depends on the household but some breeds of dogs are more outgoing than breeds of cats.

Cats and dogs both are domesticated pets. Dogs are smarter and better than cats though in a hundred ways.
