currently, I'm in a battle with my male... he's ALL puppy and doofus doesn't begin to cover it. My females have always been WAY easier and more content with being close but not on top of me all the time. I love my male but he has a lot of growing up still to do and maturing to do. He's 10 months old. I was burnt out on females because that's all I've had since our first male mix who was PTS this time last year. I wanted a male like you wouldn't believe. They're definitely slower to mature, like with humans. He's a sweetie but he overstimulates *probably more my issue than his* and lacks focus for more than a couple minutes which drives me crazy for training.
As it stands right now, if I ever manage to convince my husband for a third dog, I'll likely choose another female. They're more serious, even early on, and seem to pick things up more quickly. My stance may change as my male matures more though. There's benefits to both but right now, my mild frustration is leading me to no more males for a very long time lol.
