Generally female dogs tend to be a little more independent than males dogs and mostly aren’t so demanding of attention. They love a big cuddle as much as any male dog, but they tend to take themselves away and seek solitude when they want down time. Males love attention and interaction. Training It has always been said that female dogs are easier to train than male dogs because they are far less easily distracted, it actually comes down to food drive (reward) and biddability. While females may seem easier to train and this might indeed be the case; if you look at the history of dog show winners a larger percentage of them are males. If you are buying a companion dog on a spay/neuter clause, either gender can fit.. Our recommendation: Share with your breeder the traits and behaviors, the activity level, drive "role" you are trying to fit; traits and behaviors behin to exhibit themselves early. Other than size, either gender could be a good fit. Contact us at [email protected] or text 865-256-3528 .
