|wolfy dog||I am curious to know if there is a difference(male/female) in this adolescence's "craziness" between the show and working lines?|

|arctic||If gender is not much of a factor in adolescent craziness, would a puppy's temperament between 8 weeks to 6 months be a reasonable predictor of how crazy they get during adolescence (say from 7 months to 1.5 years)?|

|Nigel||We have 2 of each, the only major difference I've noticed with mine is the males being much more vocal.|

Going by my experience... that is totally NOT true... lol.
At 3.5 years old, my female is STILL "crazy". It doesn't seem as "bad" now though because I am use to the crazy... well... until she out smarts me and comes up with a whole new level of "crazy" and I am back to crying in the corner....

|llombardo||Neither of mine, one male and one female were crazy. High energy, yes. They didn't get into stuff or chew stuff. Now my male golden that is about 16 months has given me a run for my money...|

I don't get into conversations with people who make blanket statements like that based on limited knowledge or experience. My females have all been more challenging than the males. If there was no mischief to get into they made their own at that age. My males have all been easier and calmer.
In my experience it depends on the dog's temperament more than gender.

|Rangers_mom||I don't think there is any truth to that. It really depends on the dog not the gender.|

|robk||Nope. My 14 mo old female is INSANE right now. My male was a breeze compared to her.|

Unfortunately I had to part with the males before the end of their adolescence due to their health reasons, just as I was getting them where I wanted them to be.
