What's The Difference? Male VS Female Dogs

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 lets have a little fun with Male VS Female Dogs.


Which Is Better? Male VS Female Dogs

Keep in mind - 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.

  1. I agree with everything you said! One other thing I've noticed is that male dogs tend to be more whiney. Maybe that ties in with their neediness.
    I definitely don't have a preference between males and females, though our first two dogs were females. I think having at least one of each is the perfect solution!

    1. I definitely agree! Having a mix of them sort of balances everything out in my opinion.

  2. This seems similar for cats too ( at least mine). The males are much more snuggly, females, only when they are in the mood :)

    1. I have found that with my cats as well. I have 2 females and a male and the male kitty is definitely more affectionate!

  3. I have only had one female dog and that was our first German Shepherd, Madison. In my opinion, she was the smartest of ALL of my dogs regardless of breed. I love all of my boys though. ♥

  5. I always thought I would want a male dog but when we adopted Daisy, there was no thinking about it. We saw her and I knew she would come home with me and there was an instant connection. Cocoa, same thing. Such sweet pictures of you and your pack :)

    1. Aw thanks!! And yep, things always happen for a reason, which is probably exactly why Daisy's adoption went the way it did :)

  8. I have found my females to be crazier and more difficult. I have found my males to be big sucks. My preference will be males in the future.

  9. The mom thinks male cats are more friendly than females. At least that's how it is in our house. :)

  10. We would also have to agree with what you say, although Mom thinks Ciara is unique in that she just craves loving:) Mom also thinks two males do better together than two females. We have never had two females at the same time, but we have heard they get a bit bitchier with each other:)

    1. We are three females together. I'm the one who can be bitchy, and I start fights with my sisters, but overall, we get along pretty well. We've never had males, so we don't know how that would go.

  12. Mom is all for the girls in cats and dogs. All the male cats have been loving, but they have all been a nightmare with trouble issues. Mom doesn't like the boy dogs lifting their legs all the time, their "junk" hanging out on less furry models, so she sticks to us girls even though we tend to be bitchy now and then. She would like a male because she has lots of fun male names but I don't think it will happen.

  13. It's always interesting to hear how others boys and girls are! Our alpha, Harley, definitely fits your description of the female - she wants our love and attention, on her terms! She, however, is still puppy-like, at 10! My boy Gib is always by me. He's a deep soul, so lovable, and amazing. And he loves kids! They all love the kiddos, actually. It makes their day when friends with kids come over! The Pupsters...two girls and a boy...I'd have to say my boy Wolf acts more like a female, a bit of a "lone wolf" but does stick close to me...but acts all cool about it. I guess my five blur the lines between genders...but either way, I'm with you Jenna...I love both genders!

    1. LOL, I always like hearing about others, and what they notice in the differences as well. A lot seem the same as what I mentioned, but some break the mold so to speak.

  15. Well we have a male that loves affection and a male and a female that are more independent. Both our males and female are good with kids so I don't know, I think every dog is different. Storm (female) is bossy. I will give her that....lol.

    1. I agree, every dog is different, but I do think often times there are similar traits when it comes to male vs female.
