Question: Are Male Dogs Or Female Dogs Smarter?

The short answer is: yes.

The personality differences can most clearly be seen between females and intact (non-neutered) males.

Males can be more dominant, territorial, and easily distracted than female dogs.

On the other hand, males can also be more playful, active, and independent.

Are male or female dogs better?

Male or Female Puppy: Which is Better? Some believe that the male dog is more affectionate and easier to train, while the female dog is more aggressive and protective of its owners and puppies. Well, the truth is that when it comes to dogs and puppies there is no superior sex.

Do female dogs live longer than male dogs?

Another factor that can affect the lifespan of your dog is its gender. Female dogs tend to live longer than male dogs — two years longer on the average. Other influencing factors can include lifestyle, how much exercise the dog gets, whether or not the dog has been spayed or neutered, and health care or lack of it.

Do dogs prefer males?

Results of a study on human-canine interactions suggest that dogs approach men more often than women. Also, dogs owned by men – especially neurotic men – approach their owners more often than dogs of female owners. But this doesn’t mean they necessarily prefer men to women.

Are dogs more protective of female owners?

Dogs don’t, as a rule, dislike men, but most dogs are cared for by women, and are thus more comfortable around them. A single woman is more likely to have a dog than a single man; in a couple, the woman is more likely to handle the dog’s care. In addition, most animal care workers and veterinarians are female.
