I was suggested to post this here for more responses
Hello! I'm from PA too! My male is more snuggly, but my female sticks to me like glue. She doesn't like me out of her sight. So I think it's just that some are and some aren't. It might not matter whether they're male or female, just the dogs' different personalities. But everybody will have their own opinions. I love them both!
Not sure about the other four but first ask for health clearances.What are the top five questions all breeders should be asked before buying a pup from them?

As to male or female. I think it depends on the dog. My female was a real smoocher. She was intuitive and and we had an amazing bond. I swear she knew what I was thinking.
Ernie is closer than when I adopted him 5 years ago. Not sure if his aloofness was due to previous home or the way he is. I have bonded with him, but he will never come close. He likes to follow me around.
I am sure which ever you choose you will be more than happy with a Lab. I fell in love with them 8 years ago and wish I had known what I missed all these years.
I have always had males, so have nothing to compare to of my own, but I have known a lot of female labs that are such lovers also. So I think it might be a myth.

Hi. We are from PA too. We have three females & they are very affectionate. All three hunt & run hunt tests & live in the house. What part of PA are you from?
Another PA person here!
I have 2 females - littermates. Kendall (yellow lab) is a super lovey/cuddley girl and doesn't leave my side. Sophie (black lab) is what I call my "free-spirited" fur-child. She has times when she likes to cuddle, but she is really independent. Like others have said, I think it all depends on the personality of the dog.
