In both movies dogs and cats are not shown in the movies. In viking times dogs were used for hunting. You would think that some tribe out there has dogs or cats of some sort but they don't seem to.

(Theory)
Dogs and cats did live on berk at the times of the war, they tried to use dogs to fight off dragons and maybe some cats as bait but it Didn't work. The dragons killed off almost all the cats and dogs until after the war attempts were made to bring back the cats and dogs but it only brought war. Dogs attacking dragons. Dragons attacking dogs and cats.

But it still leaves questions on why other tribes don't have dogs/cats.

I like it

 I like this theory, it makes total sense. In fact, I also came up with the same theory, only with horses and donkeys. The vikings used horses (particularly Icelandic Horses) but we don't see any in the show or movies. However, in a Riders of Berk episode, Gobber claims to have made saddles for horses and donkeys previously in his life. I thought maybe Berk had these animals in the past, but they were taken by dragons first due to their large size. (More food for the Red Death). I didn't even think about the dogs and cats. Nice!

                                                            Eek and his dragon, Ballista

 

 

Eek the Firetamer

Eek is an adventurous viking who has trained many dragons. He has had many adventures and encountered many dragons accross the Archipelago. He is a strategist (because he has needed to rescue friends or dragons numerous times). He has a sense of humor, and is very social. He likes spending his free time at the Training Grounds. He is a skilled fighter, and his weapon of choice is his ice axe. He can take on several Hunters at a time by himself, but on the back of his Triple Stryke, that's another story.

Ballista:

Ballista edit by DuckinaDragon

Ballista is a male Triple Stryke, and is about 3 months old. He has been with Eek ever since he was born. His mother was enslaved by a war cheiftain from accross the sea. Ballista's personality is very similar to that of Sleuther, but more rebellious. He (like his rider) has a sense of humor, and he is very intelligent. He will protect Eek at all costs, and will not hesitate to fight. He is no stranger to combat, as he was once captured and held in dragon fights. This was only briefly, as Eek was captured too, and helped to rescue him. Eek could not ask for a better dragon. If you don't see Eek around Berk or the School, he's probably above the clouds on Ballista's back.

We actually have proof that

We actually have proof that cats once lived on Berk. In the short Book of Dragons, there's a cat that briefly makes an appearance when Bork the Bold is running from a dragon.

Drums R Round. Pi R Squared.

In one single episode of Race to the Edge, Snuffnut, when Throk comes to The Edge looking to take Ruffnut back with him as his wife, there is a very specific sound effect that happens.  When Hiccup takes back Astrid before she could take out Throk with her ax, she swings, off camera, and then Hiccup ducks and... a Cat screaming noise sounds.  Of all the sounds effects to use, why use a Cat sound?

 

During that time, any sailing ship regardless of who owned it (Viking, British, Spaniard, etc.) would most likely have a cat on board.  The reason for that is mice were a terrible nuisance to sailing ships for a number of reasons.  The best way to catch mice was to get a cat, more specifically, a polydactyl cat because they have thumbs on their paws, they can catch mice a lot faster than normal cats.  Even looking at cat breeds in general, there are Norwegian Cat breeds that could have been in the north with vikings because the vikings would plunder the Scandinavian islands.  Because of the usefulness of cats, then they would most likely take them back with them where then they would breed them too.  Same goes for dog breeds.

 

For httyd specifically, it is never mentioned they don't have dogs or cats and because of the cat sound effect, they at least for sure have cats.  So, it should be safe to assume that they do.

Deathsong ate the subject. Run!!

I think the dragons ate them. Who needs dogs and cats when you have a fire breathing war machine dragon? You can get them to hunt for you and rodents wouldn't dare go near a dragon.
As for the ponies and horses in the first movie Hiccup said "other people have ponies" so other vikings have ponies just not on Berk (dragons ate them too I bet)
