Female puppy vs. male puppy

Many people assume that female dogs make better pets. In the past most calls for puppies were people wanting a sweet little girl. Lately people have become more educated and prefer male puppies over females and here is why...

Males tend to be more affectionate, playful, easier to house break and train, attentive and more demanding of attention. They adore their people and want to please. Most importantly if you have more than one person in your family, male dogs love everyone equally and share their affection with everyone. Female dogs tend to be a one person dog.

I liken it to my female dog's are like having a best friend and my male dogs are like having a child. If you want the closeness, affection and relationship with your dog likened to having a child then a male is the answer. Little girls are wonderful, cute, smart and affectionate but nothing like a boy. My boys want to be on my lap when I sit down and follow me from room to room. My female dogs will lie on the couch or bed with me but usually on the other end where as my boys want to be touching me.

 Female dogs by nature are more independent, territorial and self minded than males.

So many people are worried that little boys are going to lift their leg and mark their territory in the house. If you house break a little boy properly he will only go potty outside or inside where he is trained to go like on an indoor dog potty or piddle pad.

 I take my little boy with me everywhere and he would never think of lifting his leg in the bank, in a store or at my friend's house. When I take him to the bank he runs around and greets everyone making everyone smile and feel special. If my little girl comes in with me, she is usually only interested in who is going to give her a cookie.

 Most people don't know females display alpha behavior like marking, humping, fighting, especially if they are not spayed. People tend to believe that females are more docile and attentive. This could not be further from the truth.

 If you have multiple dogs in your household it is more likely that two females will not get a long then two males. A male and a female will get along wonderfully, two males will get a long but sometimes two girls will fight. Dogs are pack animals. In the "pack mentality", females are normally the rulers. The females determine the pecking order and who competes to maintain and /or alter that order. The females are substantially more independent, stubborn and territorial than are their male counterparts.

 The females are far more apt to participate in alpha behaviors and exercise dominance over the other dogs, and sometimes even humans being a little more resistant to training.

 How many times have I had a wife tell me their female dog only loves her husband and she wants a new puppy that will love and be hers.

Or a family with kids who's female dog doesn't want to play with the kids because she tends to be a momma's girl.

Most breeders, if given the choice of only having one dog would choose a boy. Breeders have seen it all the years. They know that there is a reason that girls are called bitches. Now, if you have never had a boy, you would not know the difference. Coming from people that have had both, a male is the best choice.
