What's The Difference Between Male and Female Dogs?

Difference Between Male and Female Dogs: Dog Parenting Tips.Being owned by both male and female Siberian Huskies, I often get asked which is better, and/or which I prefer.

This is no simple answer, but there are some differences between male and female huskies, which I will highlight for you today. So let's have a little fun with Male VS Female Dogs. Keep in mind that these are my opinions, and are from my own experiences from a life time of being owned by dogs as well as cats. All pets are different and these are just guidelines for you to follow.

Let's Start With Male Huskies/Dogs:

  • In my experiences, male dogs have a need for affection from their humans more so than females. They are extremely lovable, needy and will do anything for our attention - demanding it even! Male dogs never seem to tire of affection, and will stay by your side until you say otherwise.
  • Male dogs tend to stay in their puppy phase longer. Ha... kind of reminds me of male humans too! LOL! They like to be goofballs, play around, and get into mischief.
  • When it comes to things such as spaying and neutering your dog, male dogs are cheaper to have neutered than a female is to be spayed.

Now for the Female Huskies/Dogs:

  • Female dogs love attention as well as males do, however, in my experiences, females know when they want your attention, and when they have had enough. They will soak up all the loving from us humans that they desire, and then prefer to go off and do their own thing.
  • Female dogs tend to be more independent, whereas a male depends more on his human than anything.
  • And again, as mentioned above, spaying costs more financially than it does to neuter a male dog.
  • I have heard that female dogs are suppose to be better tempered when it comes to children. I'm not sure I agree with that. I think in that case, males and females are pretty equal, and depends on the adult humans and how they decide to raise and train their dogs as well as their children with each other.
In my humble opinion, male, female... no matter. They both have different qualities, and different temperaments, and I love them all just the same. It could really come down to a personal choice. For me, I love being owned by both male and female huskies. I get the benefits of the overly affectionate, playful, goofy male, as well as the lovable, independent, chill females. I love them each in their own ways, and I wouldn't change a thing about them. How about you? What differences do you find in male VS female dogs?

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Got these much faster than other products I have ordered online. The fit is wonderful, even in my little Corolla, and the installation was really easy. Hair does NOT stick to these covers.I love them!


Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
