REPORT: Dog Owners Much More CHIPPER Than Cat Owners – Here’s The 411

Written by Wes Walker on April 7, 2019

Here’s more fuel for the endless feud between ‘dog’ people and ‘cat’ people. This one is backed up by science.

You might expect to find some kind of a statistical difference in happiness ratings between those who do and do not own a pet. But, strangely, that wasn’t where the difference turned up. That difference makes much more sense when you read the next finding.

The big difference showed up in what kind of pet you have… and the difference was big enough to zero out the total average and make it the same as non-pet owners.

The ‘General Social Survey’ came back with some answers:

… when you break the data down by pet type – cats, dogs or both – a stunning divide emerges: Dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say they’re very happy, with people owning both falling somewhere in between.

Dog people, in other words, are slightly happier than those without any pets. Those in the cat camp, on the other hand, are significantly less happy than the pet-less. And having both appears to cancel each other out happiness-wise. (Since someone’s bound to ask, it isn’t possible to do this same type of analysis for say, rabbit owners or lizard owners or fish owners, since there aren’t enough of those folks in the survey to make a statistically valid sample).

These differences are quite large: The happiness divide between dog and cat owners is bigger than the one between people who identify as middle and upper class, and nearly as large as the gap between those who say they’re in “fair” versus “good or excellent” health.

If you’re thinking about getting a pet and are hesitating between picking a cat or a dog, the math is simple.

Alright, cat people — your move. Take your best shot!
