It really depends on your experience with dogs. If your a dog owner you get unconditional love, if your not a dog owner dogs can get annoying or even tramatising

That's probably true. I had a dog a couple times as a kid. My mom hates cats but some of that is probably cuz she's allergic & had asthma as a kid that got worse when she was around cats. Noone in my extended family likes cats but a lot of em have dogs. The only exception is that my dad had a cat when him & my mom 1st started dating but he didn't like having a cat that much.

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

Depends on the type of dog too. Mum bought a dog which was being sold as a pet but the breed hasn't been domesticated very long and she's more like a wolf.

Anyway the question reminded me of...

I absolutely love and adore dogs of all kinds.
In particular, the poodles I used to have, standard and mini - I'm restricted by an allergy.

At present, I can't give a dog the exercise needed, so I have a non-allergenic cat, and love her too.

I LOVE dogs, as long as they don't bite or bark too much. I want a pet (maybe a support animal) and my first choice would be a dog. I'm just not in a living or financial situation where that's realistic for the foreseeable future.

I'm more of a cat person; yet I also like dogs who have "laid back" personalities, that also make good watch-dogs.

I usually pause in the presence of an unfamiliar dog (in order to convey calm) which I sense may not be socialized to a wide variety of people.

I value dogs who've been trained to be service dogs, to visit people in hospitals, and senior-living homes, as well as dogs who've been trained to get-along with familiar cats.
