I think in the future whenever we get another dog it would be a girl as in me experience girls have been a lot easier. And I would definitely agree that males are very needy Jasper is 100% needy and dependant and requires a lot of attention whereas Poppy is very independant but still loves her cuddle time with her mum! I wouldnt change Jasper for the world though I love him for who he is! :-)

Lol yes, it is too much sometimes, but on the off day that Molly decides to sleep away from me in the corner, I get worried and wonder if she no longer loves me! Lol

I love the boys! It's the big blocky heads and stocky builds.

What I have noticed is that the boy dogs I have had are more attached to me, while the girl dogs we have have had, have been more attached to my husband. I do find the females are more independent, while the boys are big babies - all the breeds I have had.

Lily must have a male personality because that girl is attached to my hip. She follows me everywhere and just watches out the curtains when I leave the house. She also will not play outside unless I'm out there. She is definitely a big baby.

I took her to my dads on thanksgiving and my step sister had her two dogs there and my dad and stepmothers dog was also there. My step sister thought the dogs would like to play outside together, but Lily didn't want to unless I came with her.

Same here...I've always heard the saying, "females may love you, but males are in love with you".

My golden is a male and he is stuck by myside when I'm home and watches my every move it's adorable. I'm not really sure how different girl dogs would be as I've only ever owned male dogs.

My family has only had female dogs. My parents got my childhood dog a year before I was born. She was a mix and was a wonderful dog, except she barked A LOT! She was my best friend growing up, and lived to be 18 years old. When I was living at home for grad school, my father finally gave in and allowed a puppy to live with us. I didn't care so much as to what kind of dog (breed or gender), as I just wanted a dog! My mom thought I should get a female golden, so I did! Bailey is a wonderful dog, and I wouldn't trade her for anything. I have decided however that my next dog will be a male. I think it's more of a personality thing. I grew up riding horses and eventually helped train them and teach lessons. All of my favorite horses have been male. Geldings and I just seem to get a long better. There were several mares that I liked and enjoyed riding, but they weren't in my top ten list! With Bailey, (it may just be her) I feel like I have to convince her that what I want her to do was her idea lol if that makes sense. Like I said it may just be her, but we but heads sometimes, as we are both very stubborn. So, long story short- I have a female golden that I love dearly, but my next dog will be a male!

It's funny with Buddy, he was really aloof as a puppy and not super big on cuddling, but now that he's a little older, he loves just laying up either on you or next to you for pets and love. Even when he's across the room, if you just look at him he's bounding over for pets because obviously you wouldn't look towards him unless it was to get him to come. His new trick when I'm getting ready for work in the morning is to bring his stuffed toys over and drop them at my feet with that sad face for a game of fetch!

I grew up with female dogs (Chow mixes) and they were very much cuddly girls. I remember more than once falling asleep on one of them! However, I will say that Buddy and Hiro are more playful than Lady or Beauty (my childhood dogs) were.

I'm happy if I have a dog, preferred gender is just a plus.

I love them both. However up until this latest two only had a female.
These two are as different as night and day. The male is laid back, nothing bothers him and he's a real lover.
The female, who was abused, is a wild chick. Nervy a ball of fire and needs constant reassurance. She's the handful. Henry is a piece of cake.
