According to an American study, dog owners are more inclined to be dominant in society. They scored a lot higher than cat lovers in a survey on social dominance orientation.

The Study

The study, which was carried out by the University of Melbourne, carried out a survey on 500 U.S adults. They concluded that dog lovers are more competitive and that these people are more likely to accept social inequality.

The studies show that the men scored higher than the women, and the women were more likely to be cat lovers.

Dogs Are Easier to Manipulate

Researchers conclude that dominant people prefer dogs because they can order them around. While dogs are very loyal they can be easily trained and handled where cats do not always do what you want them to do!
