I've only had 2 dogs, ever, and both boys.

They have both taken on the role of "second husband", and are goofballs when the "first husband" is home, but are "on the job", the minute he walks out the door - standing between me and danger, making sure I don't feel lonely (or alone) anywhere in the house (even the loo...), making sure I am never feeling unloved or abandoned!

The males in my house are mostly pretty amazing!...

I have seen it go bad with the boys, I have two friends with male poodles and they are so attached they just can't function without their owner. The one has to have her husband take him for a walk or car ride if she wants to cook or clean because her poodle won't stop trying to get her to pick him up. The other one if she leave her poodle at home too long he'll lick himself raw and get an upset tummy.

Of course you could argue that they didn't come from the best breeders or weren't raised properly but it's scary to me because the one also has a female poodle that doesn't have issues and the other has two different breeds of dogs that are fine. It's just the male poodles.

Brody is my first male and my first poodle. He is wonderful and I love him dearly, but as of right now, I still prefer females. Brody is very loving and very affectionate, but not particularly attached to me specifically. I often think that he doesn't know he's mine!

Rufus is a male, given he is a terrier, but he will allow you to pet him, but he'll also shake it off the minute you quit. Roscoe was my first Poodle, and he was a huge cuddlebug from day one! Russell, on the other hand, would allow you to cuddle him when he was little, but preferred to sleep off on his own. He has just lately taken to cuddling up next to us on the couch instead of on his own chair. But he still prefers to sleep alone at night, either in his crate or on the couch in the family room. Go figure!

I have 2 toy poodles. The male is such a mama's boy. He loves loves hugs and kisses and sleeps on top of me like a baby. Sometimes he sleeps on his side on top of my tummy with his head on my chest and sometimes he wants my arms out so that he can sleep with his head on my shoulder and hugs me. So I have hubby on one side and Gucci on the other. Lol. Miu Miu only likes to cuddle under her terms. She usually sleeps by my feet or on top of my head taking up half my pillow, but no cuddle when it comes to bedtime for her. She was very loving and wanted held every minute when she was sick and after she got spayed. So again it's all on her terms. I'll ask her do you want picked up and half the time she would and climbs up my leg waiting to be picked up. Half the time she looks at me and walks away. If I asked Gucci he always jumps right up. I definitely think boys are more loving but I'm glad I have one of each. Gucci is a huge thinker. I swear there's a little kid trapped inside him. He thinks therefore doesnt always listens unless he knows there's something in it for him. Miu Miu on the other hand does whatever is asked with no thinking or questioning. If they r both about to run up the stairs and I say no no. Miu Miu immediately stops but Gucci gives me this looks like Im stilling going up. He goes up a few steps while looking at me the whole time and if I don't like angry the he shoots up the stairs and if I look like I mean it then he comes running over and kissing me all over. I could never be mad at him

Lots of people say we project our human emotions onto male vs. female dogs - but I really think males are sweeter, more affectionate, and seek attention. My friend has 6 dogs. 3 males, 3 females. The three females are more chill and once they sniff the guest, they go relax on the couch. And it has nothing to do with age - the three males range from 3, 7, and 14... all three are so goofy and want to be petted and act silly. The females act more dignified. Leroy loves cuddling and could cuddle all day, he would crawl into your torso if he could. Although Louis isn't much of a cuddler (he gets hot), he is a huge mama's boy. All of my animals are male (cats and dogs), except one - Toki. People describe as a huge bitch. She is a spitfire and I love her! But I wouldn't call her sweet... only when she wants to be. When it came down to choosing the gender of my new cats, I leaned more towards boys. Having one girl in the pack is enough haha.

I had both male and female dogs and both have been very loving. I think it depends on the individual. One of our male dogs had bonded to me and another bonded to my wife. I have also had females that have been very attached to me.

I will admit that our male poodle is the most cuddly dog that I have ever had but this may be a poodle thing as this is my first!

I grew up with mostly male dogs and they were always as I remember, affectionate physically, always seeking human contact. As I became an adult dog owner, I have had mostly females and found them also affectionate, but not as physical about it, more calm in their approach ( coming and lying next to me rather than jumping all over me when seeking attention.) It could just be my demeanor. As I get older my exuberance is a bit curtailed too!LOL

Until Pumpkin came into my life I would agree with everyone that males are better. My favorite dog was a male newfie...Pumpkin always wants to be in the same room as me. At night she is the BEST cuddler...She puts her back aganist my back and sleeps there all night (Her mom is the same way). I think it depends on the dog and the breed. I think PODDLES are the best at what ever we want them to be.
