Oh, the tension between cat people and dog people. Both pet owners are typically proud of being either a cat or dog person––its almost like a sense of pride! You can actually guess a lot of things about someone’s personality based off of whether they prefer cats over dogs or vise versa. Now, not all cat or dog people are exactly alike, but there are general traits that each pet owner tends to have.

Yes, dog people are more likely to be sociable and outgoing. This might be because they tend to be more active and bring their dogs to places where they talk to other people––such as the park.
