Male vs Female
Many people believe that female dogs make better pets. Female preference seems to be ingrained in some people. It seems that many people prefer a female over a male. They do not think that females display alpha behaviors like "marking" and/or "humping". They believe that they are more docile and attentive and do not participate in fighting over dominance. This is simply NOT TRUE !
In the dog pack makeup, females usually rule the roost, determine pecking order, and who compete to maintain and/or alter that order. The females are, as a result, more independent, stubborn, and territorial than their male counterparts. Females do mark and they will mount other females to show dominance. On the other hand, males are usually more affectionate, exuberant, attentive, and more demanding of attention. They are attached to their people. They also tend to be more steadfast, reliable, and less moody. They are more outgoing, more accepting of other pets, and are quicker to take to children. Most boys are easily motivated by food (is that a surprise?) and praise, and so eager to please that training is easy. And no matter what age, he is more likely to act silly and more puppy-like, always wanting to play games. Boys are fun-loving until the day they die. Females tend to be more reserved or dignified as they age. Witness the human equivalent of the twinkling eyed Grandpa still playing catch at age 70, while Grandma quietly observes from the porch.
Neutered males rarely exhibit secondary sexual behavior such as 'humping', or 'marking' and lifting of legs. Once the testosterone levels recede after neutering, most of these behaviors (if they ever existed) will disappear. Boys who were neutered early (by 5-6 months of age) usually do not ever raise their leg to urinate.
While the female will usually come to you for attention, when she has had enough, she will move away. While boys are always waiting for your attention and stay close to you, the female is much more prone to mood swings. One day she may be sweet and affectionate-the next day reserved and withdrawn.
I do not want this information to imply that the female is not a wonderful pet and companion, they are. I am sharing this information because many people gravitate to the female not ever understanding the pure joy the male dog gives his owner. The way I have come to express it is, "My females love me, my males are 'in love' with me". I never need to worry about what my male dogs are up to; they are always at my side.
The Final Decision, unless you really want puppies born in your own home, there really is not that much difference between a male and a female dog. If you want a championship caliber dog that you can take to shows, history suggests a male dog might be the better choice, while the female might be better if you don’t want a dog that is slobbering over you every single second. And of course, if you already have a dog you should probably look for a second dog of the opposite sex. But truthfully, the choice should be based on the sense of connection you feel with an individual dog more than anything else. I hope this gives you some answers as you are deciding the best choice for your new pet.
