|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.
