Female or male dog, which is best ?

Recommended Posts

Just thinking about puppies and wondering what people think about whether to have a boy or a girl.

Our Daisy, was obviously a girl - she has been the only dog in our lives. She was a cocker spaniel. She was very well behaved but I only have her to go by.

Another thing I'm not so sure of is what to have, DS and I were thinking cavapoo, maltipoo, cockapoo, cavachon or even a yorkiepoo.

Do any of you have any of these and which would get on better with chickens ?

We may not even get one at all.......

I grew up with a female dog and she was amazing, gentle and well behaved we rescued a male dog and he is the same  - I don't think it matters but I would never have trusted either dog with chickens. Both my dogs were rescue and Heinz 57 so I cannot recommend a breed but I can say find a good puppy class \ dog class first - training of dog and owner and socialising is so important.

Either male or female are equally lovely and rather than  something poo why not try a shelter for the same thing a mixed breed which is basically what these fancy bred ones are too.   There are so many of them looking for homes - both puppies and older doggies.   I always had labradors and the last one we had was a 10 year old rescue ex breeding *****.   She was so lovely with the cat and thought her name was "Leave it" when out near the chickens LOL!.     Good luck with whatever you decide and would love to see some photos! :)

Thank you all very much 😊

I think we have decided as a family not to get one of any kind.

I was excited by the fact of seeing cute, little puppies for sale and got carried away.

I think if I lived on my own, I would definitely do it, but family stuff over rules other things. 

I will stick to getting pretty, little fluff balls instead..... for now.....

Or to dress a chicken as a puppy :) If you can't decide which sex is best for you, take them both. I have 2 Samoyed puppies - boy Jackie and girl Lisa. I didn't notice much difference in their behavior. They both are clever enough and obedient. For now, I spend most of my time training them, bookmarking every single dog-raising site, such as https://cleverpuppies.com. I have a fear of missing something, so my doggies could be aggressive or (which is worse) depressed. Also, I already wonder how smart should be their babies.
