MALES vs FEMALES
All puppies are sweet, cuddly, wiggly, snugly, and affectionate! Who can say they’re not the most adorable companions you could ask for?
For some reason many times people have a predetermined idea that female puppies are easier to train and exhibit less aggressive behavior, but in actuality boys are just as easy. In fact, female puppies usually rule the roost, and are very independent and territorial. Females will let you know who’s boss right away and will try to establish dominance. They are more likely to fight with another female than a male is with another male. Males are very playful, attentive, affectionate, and want to please you. They are also motivated by food (remember the way to love is through the stomach or something like that) and so males are quite easy to train. Boys love to play games and they are fun loving all their life. Females, as they age, are a little more reserved. While the independent spunk of the female is attractive, so is the gentle, attentive calmness of a male.
One myth that needs to be debunked is that males are always “humping” or lifting their leg to potty on everything. If a male is neutered early, he rarely exhibits these traits. In fact, boys who are neutered by 5 months of age usually don’t ever raise their leg to potty.
So when considering a puppy…. don’t forget those boys.
They will win your heart and keep it!
