And I've seen not-so-smart examples of either.

Cats pretty much evolved from solitary rodent hunters. Dogs evolved from pack hunters. So dogs are used to having a social structure with a chain of command. Cats are used to operating independently. So, for a dog, it's a hop-skip-and-a jump to put you at the top of the pack. For cats, it's more about what they need. Not to say that cats don't establish a pecking order or social dominance or social niches.
I guess it still does come back to cats resemble women and dogs resemble men. Its still easier for a domesticated dogs master to train them because they have developed that willingness to follow and submit to, the person who has the treats.
