Male vs. Female?

Male vs. Female?  I am often asked, which is better.  I think its more of a preference rather than one being better than the other.  It’s a personal choice that only you can make.  But here is an article that I came across.  Read and see if this helps you in making that deciding factor.

“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. The females are much more intent upon exercising their dominance by
participating in alpha behaviors such as ‘humping’.

There IS a reason people utilize the technical dog term of ‘bitch’ in a negative way-and it refers directly to
the behaviors exhibited by the females of the dog world. Most fights will usually break out between two
females.

Males, on the other hand, are usually more affectionate, exuberant, attentive, and more
demanding of attention. They are very 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 take quicker to children. Most boys are easily motivated by food (how true!!) and praise, and so eager to please that training is easy. However, males
can be more easily distracted during training, as males like to play so often. 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 months of age) usually don’t ever raise their leg to urinate.

While the female will usually come to you for attention, when she’s had enough, she will move away. While
boys are always waiting for your attention and near at hand. Females are usually less distracted during
training, as she is more eager to get it over with, and get back to her comfy spot on the couch. The female
is less likely to wage a dominance battle with YOU, but she can be cunning and resourceful in getting her
own way. She is much more prone to mood swings. One day she may be sweet and affectionate-the next
day reserved and withdrawn or even grumpy, also has periods of being ‘in heat’ unless she is spayed.”
