Choosing a male or female puppy


You will also need to consider if you want a male or a female puppy. This is a very personal decision. Often people who work their dogs (e.g. for obedience or agility) prefer males. Those with children often prefer females, as they can usually be gentler and calmer and fit in with the family environment.

The only inconvenience is when females come into heat, usually once or twice a year. Nowadays, many people have females spayed after their first season, however this involves an operation so speak to your vet for advice before making a big decision such as this.
