    Default Bitch Bitchiness???

    Hey guys!

    Sorry I've been MIA lately. Not sure what I've been doing? lol

    I have a question...

    We are in the position to get Casey, our Border Collie pup a friend. I have contacted the breeder to express my interest. There are 3 girls and 3 boys available (Red & White Border Collies).

    I wanted to ask, would it be better to get a male or a female? Casey isn't desexed yet, but she will be eventually. The pups are only 6 days old, so it will be another 7 or so weeks until we get it.

    I've been told that it's better to get an opposite sex as a companion, because there will be too many issues with dominancy with 2 females.

    What are your thoughts?

    I need to let her know ASAP so I don't miss out on a pup.

    Opposites do normally get along better, but some people seem to have some success with two females.

    I would have ideally liked to get another girl, but not if will most likely cause issues?

    Casey is such a beautiful natured dog, and I don't want to ruin that.

    I have also asked the breeder what she would recommend.


    Thanks Cat!

    i have a 6 year old female Australian Kelpie, and recently got a (now 14 week old) Male Australian shepherd. i was worried at how our Kelpie would react to a new pup, and a LOT of people said i should get a male because they are more likely to get along!... and they were right... lol... Dodge and Koda are best friends now! Dodge can be a bit rough sometimes, but nothing too bad... and no problems with dominance...

    I would have thought a male. However your breeder should help you out with that as well.
    I believe a good breeder usually picks out a pup that will be suited to you and your circumstances.
    We had 2 female Cocker Spaniels years ago with no probs. One was dominate the other one didn't have many clues. (No disrespect Molly, you were a gentle soul)
    Have heard that 2 dominate females fight way worse than 2 males.
    Good luck.

    hi,

    I have two male dogs and they are getting along well but very competitive, so they become double trouble and make me
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    If they're both desexed it shouldn't really be an issue. It's probably more to do with individual personalities rather than gender in many breeds.

    I have a mother and one of each sex of her litter. No problems with any of them. The two females are desexed.
