    DefaultMale vs Female (dogs that is)

    I am sure this has been discussed repeatedly, but I was just curious as to what others thought. I have had both male and female dogs and while I know a lot of the dogs personality is unique to their own genetic makeup, I have found that I seem to prefer male dogs. I guess that is fitting for me, since my house is full of males (3 little boys and hubby!). In my experience, males seem to be more easy going and the females tend to have more attitude, if you know what I mean So does anyone else have a preference for gender when it comes to their dogs, or does it not matter so much?

    I prefer males for the same reason you do.

    It's hard to say. I love my male because he is more affectionate although also more needy. But I love my female because she is smart and better behaved.

    I guess they both have advantages.

    I have never had a female, and Tal (a male) is my first dog as an adult. I can say he is affectionate in that he likes to be with me and he is definitely playful. I has never met a stranger yet and is better behaved at 5 months than I expected him to be. I have spent alot of time with him not just training but just playing and being together.

    Wow...mine are exactly the same.....Denali is so much more affectionate and needy and Dakota is much much smarter is so many ways....and better behaved (probably because of her age though)

    I love my girl, Magnum, to death. But I do prefer boys. Ruger works ten times harder for me than Magnum ever would. Magnum's in it for herself. Any titles I've won with Magnum, trust me, I worked my butt off to earn them. She was not easy to train/show. Ruger has his moments, but the boy lives to work
