Male verses Female
    Information below written and provided by:

    Choosing your pup......Male versus Female   
    Most puppy buyers have a personal preference when making the choice between male verses a female puppy! Many
    behavioral characteristics are more common in males while other characteristics are more common in the females.
    Evaluating the characteristics may be helpful in determining which sex best suits your lifestyle.
    1)  If you notice this in special the puppies, person and tolerate others.
    2) Independent: Females prefer to be in control. They may come to their owner but may leave when they have had 3)
    Stubborn:  A female is typically the ALPHA of their pack. They desire to control most situations and may respond to
    perceived challenges.
    4) Territorial: Like males, a female (in tact or spayed) may mark their territory.
    5) Protective: Females are more protective of their home or (from their canine perspective) their den.
    6) Behavior and mood changes: Females start cycling around 6 months of age, and twice yearly thereafter.
    Their hormones increase during their heat cycle and their behavior or moods may be altered. They pass a bloody
    discharge and odor that attracts intact males.

    The following characteristics often apply to males:
    Keep in mind, these are generalizations and there are exceptions.

    1) Affectionate: Male dogs are typically more affectionate than females. They tend to crave more attention from
    their owners (more than the females do) and share more affectionate behaviors with their family members.
    2) Attentive: Males tend to be more focused on their human companions, while the females tend to be a bit more
    independent. They are eager to please and prefer to remain close to their special person.
    3) Food Motivated: Males tend to be more food motivated which makes training easier. When they exhibit
    appropriate behaviors, it is important to reward them with treats.
    4) Exuberant: Male dogs maintain a fun loving and puppy like exuberance throughout their life. They love to run,
    play, and fetch.
    5) Aggressive behaviors: Intact males may display aggressive behaviors toward other males and exhibit marking
    It is a known fact that the neutered males are more loyal, make better pets and are easier to obedience train.
    6) Protective: Males are more protective of their yard or (from their canine perspective) their territory. Most of
    them like to patrol their yards and mark the diameter with their scent. If another dog marks something they perceive
    as theirs, they will mark over it.

    Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with
    additional information. If you already have a dog and are considering adding a new dog  or puppy
    to your pack:

    1) If you already have a male or female, a dog of the opposite sex is generally the best choice. Dogs of the same
    sex are more likely to challenge each other, than dogs of the opposite sex.
    2) If you already have a male dog, he will likely be more accepting of a female, and you will have fewer dominance
    issues if you add a female to your pack. However if you decide to add another male to your pack, they can peacefully
    co-exist with your guidance. It is important to closely monitor their interactions from the very beginning. Never allow
    aggressive behavior from either dog. For long term peace of mind, it's highly recommended to  neuter both males.
    3) If you already have a female dog, she will likely be more accepting of a male. Most males tend to be more
    If he does not challenge your female, most likely she will not instigate a fight with him. Adding another female to
    your pack may be more challenging (depending on their personalities). The toughest combination is two females
    because they are more likely to fight than a male and a female or two males.

    Many breeders and knowledgeable dog people own many females that coexist together with out conflict, because
    we maintain the alpha position and watch for the slightest signs of discontent. Our females have established and
    accepted their pack hierarchy and we reinforce it. Whether you choose a male or a female, is your personal
    preference. The characteristics listed above are generalizations and do not apply to every dog. There are many
    variables that modify behavior. Depending on the birth order, many male puppies display female characteristics
    and many female puppies display male characteristics.

    Please Take Note:

    Spayed females and neutered males are less likely to exhibit the (gender specific) behavior issues
    and disrupt your canine pack. Spaying and neutering also eliminates territorial marking.
