Physical differences between dog and bitch?

Generally spreaking, other than weight, are there any other physical differences between dogs and bitches? I know males are generally heavier but what about head, face, muzzle? Are there any characteristics that sometimes Tend to differentiate the two?

Generally the differences are the size of head and body. In general they will obviously be heavier and should be taller. My boys have more bone (thinker legs/tail bases) then the bitches. Although, I have seen some males that look like bitches and some mature bitches that look like puppies. I am not fond of that but that is JMO. Boys like to love you and bitches like to be loved. When altered a Golden with a sound temperament should be relatively the same whether they are male or female.
