I know it sounds like a stupid, uneducated question. I know there are great ones for both sexes, and it totally depends on the individual animal. Any thoughts or observations though? Im in the market to get a new puppy (once my dogs injury heals). I origionally wanted a female for a couple reasons. I have never owned a female dog though. I do love my males, and really think im a male animal owner (but cant really be sure yet). Now i cant decide what sex to get. I want to do agility, obedience and tracking with the future dog. I will be looking for a dog with good drive. My boy loves to work with me, and he is a fabulous tracking dog. He is not an agility or obedience dog though. We have tried them, but they arent his thing. I just have it in my head that a female will be quicker and more compact to do the sports. I know and love the boys temperaments though. My dog doesnt have any issues with other boys, so that is not a problem. Any input would be great! I will probably be telling the breeder what temperament i want and that sex doesnt matter. I just cant make up my mind though!
