    sorry not being clear question was not in regard to bones/toys. She's the first girl i've owned and when meeting other dogs if i am close by she seems to get a bit defensive if im further away she seems to be a lot calmer, never had this occur with the boys. It only seems to be the other girls occaisionally/rarely.

    my female ACD can get a little protective, and is weary of people and dog's she doesn't know (completely different story once she has sussed them out)

    a lot of it is breed and temperament dependent more so than male/female dependent IMO

    I think it is independent of gender. I know several male dogs that I am very wary of when they are close to their owners as they would go my dogs given the chance. One of my males gets a bit defensive at first when another male gets in his space and he is close to me.

    Boys and girls can both be snuggly. It is always one of my bitches that is always to be found at my feet where ever I am, a loyal and loving ACD. Love my boys but I connect better with my girls, perhaps because they are cattle dogs and my boys are not.

    All cattle dogs I've known have been quite protective when we're around strangers (human or dog). Hasn't mattered if it's a boy or a girl cattle dog - they all did it.

    Hi 'Puppy's mamma' - Girl pups versus boy pups - which ones are better? Well the jury is out for me – love them both !

    There was a member on this forum – who doesn’t post anymore (I miss you K & P) who said –paraphrasing here – that boy pups tend to fall in love with their owner and the girl pup just loves them !

    I will extend that and say - that it depends very much on the sex and temperament of the owner – as to how your pups will turn out in the end + the training you as the owner are prepared to do with them !

    I have only ever been able to legally have 2 pups on the premises at one time. The boy/girl combination has worked really well for me over the years – and that is what I have always done.

    I love both sexes of pups – each has their own very special type of personalities – and I like the fact that boy/girl partnerships in my experience have always worked – no fights and no hassles. There are other members on this forum that have two of the same sex pups in their life or more – and they are happy with their situation!

    I have found that the boys in my life – have tended to be sooky, wanting to please all the time, eager and in your face – maybe not so easy to train initially - as ‘Kalacreek’ stated – ‘boy brains’ - takes a bit of extra time with them!

    Whereas the girls – generally were not as patient with me about the requests for ‘same again commands’ ! They knew what they had to do – so as far as they were concerned – let’s move on !

    The girls also passed their obedience session exams in one go – whereas the boys – well there were a few repeats.

    The only concern I have is the age of the pups – they will bond very quickly – so you need to set up alone time for each of them and also separate training and even exercise time for them.

    As far as any sex pups peeing inappropriately – I have a command for toileting – so that has sorted that out for me.

    Heaps of kudos for the intended rescue and Good Luck Wishes for the future !

    I have heard that there are differences between the breeds, often shown in training situations, but the breed probably makes more of a difference than the gender.

    Unless the dog has a phobia or aggression issues, a lot of the 'problems' he was returned for could be fixed with extensive walking and good nutrition. Maybe he was being destructive because they couldnt walk him yet because he had not had his final shots. But like most people know the 3-5 month period is often critical for getting a dog socialised, so I would consider where you can take him safely to be off lead and learn dog ways, daily.
    Bruce is a "dog walker in inner west Melbourne" & sells "Healthy Dog treats." My dog Archie approves of these things.
