Hi all ! dilema , we have a female golden lab called Daisy she is the best dog in the world honest !! but then i am biased she is nearly 11 months old really well behaved ( most of the time ,never chews things, friendly, calm and loving ) so my problem is we are considdering getting another, do i get another female or a male lab, i have no intention to breed just want to keep as pets.
does anyone have an opinion on wheather 2 females work better together or a male and female. so far ive looked just at girls and was wondering about a chocolate or black dog. you never know i could end up with all 3 colours lol . no seriosly i probably will at some point .
your views greatly awiated ...

I agree. While a lot of people have no problems with two or more of the same sex, it seems to me that male and female pairs do better.

I would focus on the specific dog if I were you. I think it all really depends on the dog's personality. If you get a sweet dog that is easy going and well adjusted, it doesn't matter what sex. If you are looking to adopt, ask if they will allow you to do a trial foster with the dog to see how it gets along with you and Daisy before completing the adoption process.

But what the other posters said is correct; if you only look at the sex, then yes, males and females have a tendency to do better than two females.

The worst dog fights I've ever been witness to were between two female dogs.
My mom currently has 2 female dogs...haha...while they get along for the most part...they still have a tendency to be quite...nasty toward each other. ;)
