    From my experiance males seem to test you more, and are a little more I need it know.
    I have always had better luck triainning females though, they seem to mature fast I think, but I think they are more prone to peeing when they get excited.

    Both have there ups and down. I have grown up with both, and now I have a female and a male

    I've,always,owned both and love them all!.No preference,just different!.
    Females are prissy,sneaky,bitchy and always dominant over the males cos they don't care!.Males love to play the big,nasty boy but they are in fact big babies!.
    Both are just as easy to train but females are usually faster at getting it!.
    Like men,males can be hard of hearing,depending on the situation or what you asking them to do!!.

    Re: Difference between male vs female dogs?...

    well Ive always preferred male dogs...we have only had one female who I really liked...and that was my Chow/AsuShep.....

    I think though that it is all just a matter of personality! My sister likes having females as does my brother....so I think its just a matter of how people look at each of the genders and what they see them selfs doing with the dogs.

    Always preferred females. We had a male dog and he continued to mount our legs even though he was neutered! Female dogs just seem cuter and more gentler to me and I will never have a male dog!

    I have read that there tends to be better longevity in females than males in the dog world, particularly in spayed females vs neutered males.

    I think male dogs can be more aggressive.

    Lets just say you were going to spay or neuter the dog you got. Then what would be the benefits of either, if any?

    I'm interested in this as well. I'm currently trying to decide whether to get a male or female puppy. Ultimately, it may just come down to availability as the litters are small, but I'd still like to know the pros/cons. In particular, I'm concerned that if I get a male, it won't play nice with my sister's (neutered) male mini doxie.

    For every stereotype I've read concerning males vs females, I've met a dog who breaks it. I don't think there is anything you can say about one gender that will be true across the board. The most important thing is the dogs personality. This is especially true if they are fixed.

    I've always gotten male pets only because they are cheaper to neuter/spay. I'm not looking forward to the bill for our girl Ceja come January!

    Female dogs seem to lick and kiss MUCH more than male dogs...spayed and intact.

    It depends whether you prefer a dog who openly defies and challenges you, or one who plots your demise behind your back. I like to know when I'm being blown off so I get along better with males. Males tend to be comedians.

    Re: Difference between male vs female dogs?...

    I have 2 males and one female they are all fixed / spayed now but before they were the 2 males fought each other and drew blood I had to seperate them and they also marked, i got them fixed problem solved.Now when they begin to fight now they just scwabble a little and thats it they arent drawing blood thank god. My little girl,, she had her first heat before she was spayed it happened so fast and she is very tiny so it wasnt a horrible mess. But I couldnt take worrying about it each month so she was fixed and wow its so great, The boys dont mark. They still want to do the happy dance once in awhile but nothing really happens. As far as who I like better boy or girl well I had a best friend in the whole world he was a male Yorkshire Terrier Teacup. He passed away and I havent been able to find anything like him. But I notice boys cling to mama and usually growls and barks at all the men in my house my 2 sons and my husband but the female dog LOVES daddy and my sons but can get moody with me. ha I love them both I guess..

    Re: Difference between male vs female dogs?...

    I've had both. Never seen much of a difference between them in terms of loyalty, playfulness, etc.

    I have a female and a male who both "shadow" me. Both play equally. Never had a male "mark" in the house.

    I think if I didn't have dogs and wanted one, I'd start with a male. That's because 2 neutered males, or a neutered male and spayed female seem to be more likely to get along with each other rather than 2 females. Some of the worst fights I've seen/heard about have been with 2 females. So I'd start w/a male, because if I came across another dog I wanted, I could take it in, regardless of sex. If I already had a female, I would have to be concerned about them getting along with each other. (I have a tendency to take in strays, so that is the basis of my reasoning.)

    Re: Difference between male vs female dogs?...

    Spot can I ask for some advise ? Right now I have 2 males and one female ..now one male is a Chihuahua and the female is a Chihuahua so they bond together and now the Yorkie who used to just have the male Chi all to himself basically lost his friend to the other chi However I think that is because the 2 chi's are the same breed.

    SO my question I would like to buy a 4th dog and make it a Yorkie but Im not sure whether to get a male or female ?? HELP ha If you can give your opinion I would really be grateful..

    Thank you in advance Regi

    Re: Difference between male vs female dogs?...

    Personally, I'd go with a neutered male. I've had 3 Neutered males and one female with no problems. I had 2 females and 2 males w/no problems. But I've had friends with females who will fight visciously with other females. It just seems that if you end up with females who will fight, they fight and don't back down like males will.

    My male dogs have always been submissive to the female. If my male dogs get a little rough, and snap angrily at the other male, the other male seems to back off. I've read several times that females will fight to the death. Males will fight til one backs down. And yes, I know that some females get along w/other females great. It just seems like if there is going to be a problem, it is more likely to be between 2 females, rather than neutered males.

    My males get along great, and the female knows she is the queen.

    How old is your Yorkie? Sometimes if there is an older dog, and 2 younger, the younger ones will bond and play and the older one is kinda on the sidelines. That happened to a Cocker I had. She used to be best friends and play w/my GSD mix. As the Cocker got older, the GSD started playing with a younger dog that I got.
