Boy Puppies vs Girl Puppies
Are you asking; whats the difference between boy puppies vs girl puppies. Honestly, that is totally a personal preference. If you research this topic you will find conflicting answers and that is because everyone has their own opinion.  A lot of families will say "I will only get a boy dog because they are great with kids and are more affectionate." But then on the other hand you will have just as many families saying the same thing about girl dogs. You will hear people say boy dogs are smarter but then again, just as many families say girl dogs are actually smarter.

Who is right? Which one is better?
If the truth be told - both boy and girl dogs are equally incredible. Again, everyone has a different preference, personal experience and reason why they choose a specific gender. So get what's right for you.

Just like humans, ALL dogs are born with different personalities.
.

There are "alpha females" and "alpha males"
.

There are "submissive females" and "submissive males"
.
There are "fun males" and "fun females"
.

There are "stubborn males" and "stubborn females"
.

There are "quiet calm and laid back females" and "quiet calm and laid back males"
.

There are "high energy males" and "high energy girls"
.

There are "rolly-polly easy going girls" and "rolly-polly easy going boys"
.

There are "shy & timid males" and "shy & timid females"
.
Sometimes the smartest pup in the litter is the boy, other times it's the girl. Etc..

 

Is Personality More Important then Gender
Yes. Depending on which personality you get will depend on your overall experience with that particular puppy. Some families have 5 to 10 dogs that blend beautifully and are easy to manage. They move together as a smooth unit. While other families may only have 2 or 3 dogs and are in constant battles with them. Is gender to blame for this - NO, it's all about how the dogs personalities are blending together. There are families that have 2 girls dogs that fight all the time, but on the other hand, there are just as many families that have 2 girl dogs that get along perfectly!  So again, it's not really the "gender" that determines the experience.

But Boys Lift their Legs
The #1 complaint about boy dogs is that they "mark their territory  or "lift their leg" to pee on everything BUT if you do further research, you will see that the people who are usually complaining about this behavior have males that are not neutered, or males that were neutered later in life (1 year or older) or males that were used as "breeders." (even if the male just bred one time.)  If you talk to your vet or any professional within the pet industry you will learn that most agree  once the male dog is finally neutered the problem will either completely go away or significantly diminish.

.

But Girls Don't Lift their Legs
 Oh yes they do! They just do it differently. It's obvious when a male dog "marks his territory" because you can visually see them "lifting their leg" to pee.  Females DO "mark their territory" and "leave their scent" but they squat to do it so it's NOT as obvious. Matter of fact, we hear countless families share with us how their (not) spayed female dog is totally potty trained but will have "potty accidents" from time to time in the house which frustrates the owners because they feel she "knows better." When in reality, the female dog is NOT going "potty inside" the house by accident like they think - the female is "leaving her scent" on purpose and "marking her territory" just like the males are doing.  And yes, both girl dogs and boy dogs will do this even if there is NO other dog around. It's just a natural behavior driven by their sex hormones if they are not neutered or spayed.
