|Ask yourself this important question:
Should we purchase a Male or a Female?

|Males on the other hand are very loyal and protective and bond very well to you. They are less territorial than females are and can
adapt much more quickly than a female to new situations. If a male is neutered early or trained carefully they will not lift their legs.
This seems to be the most common complaint I hear about males. I have several males and I have had them all together in the house.
None of them lifted their legs to mark on anything in the house because we trained them not to. It is not as hard as people make it out
to be. Now outside is another matter as full intact males will mark their territory. But goodness sakes it is "outside" after all.
As far as a difference between males and females when it comes to activity level I have seen that some females want more play and
exercise than their male counterparts but there isn't a whole lot of difference. I will say that in poodles in my opinion I have found the
miniature poodles to be most active of the three varieties. Some poodles are couch potatoes and some live to get up and go. This is
something that should be matched to the family the puppy is going to more than a decision that is based on sex.
Sometimes it does not matter what a breeder says, people are just stuck on females. But you really should take into consideration
what your breeder is telling you would be the better pet for you.
