I could not say wich is better we have only had females we lost sapphire last year, who was not the cuddley type,but loved to play with you games etc going on walks. we now have zola who does like cuddles and follows you everywhere, very loving she wants to be with us so much it becomes hard work sometimes, we have never had a male but im sure some will be big soppy dogs myself i think it depends on the dogs personality

Default Which GSD do you feel is more affectionate, males or females?

My female GSD is affectionate with me but with male humans she is super affectionate. It's like I don't even exist :/ so I've wondered if I had a male GSD it would be the opposite....maybe more affectionate towards me and less with males? Who knows....

I couldn't really vote either. I am a female and have my first GSD which is also a female. And she is very affectionate, she loves to cuddle with me. In fact if she dosen't get her cuddle time in the morning (mama's time) she will let me know she's not to happy about that! lol. She does love my husband and will give him kisses, but she seek's me out when she want's to cuddle ect. She's not like that with anybody else, just me She also watch's out for me, and she think's I need her to walk me places, she's a silly girl.

I have both a female and a young male. The young male is far more affectionate towards me than the female is (although, she is affectionate as well, just not as much as him.)

Both are more affectionate towards me than they are towards my husband, but that is mainly because I am their handler. They still love him.

The female is very gentle and sweet with my young children. The male is a bit more aloof with them, but very good natured.

I have a four year old female. Her world revolves around my husband. She likes me when he isn't home, but when he is there, I am invisible.

I also have a 9 month old male. He ignores the husband but with me he seems to think he is a poodle and likes to place his very large front half in my lap for cuddling and chest scratching. He is not always like this, only in the evening when he is unwinding after massive amounts of exercise.

I have never owned a female; I have always owned (neutered) males and they have all been super affectionate with ME, no matter what their breed. Odin is my first intact male and so far, he's pretty affectionate.

I can blow the lab vs. GSD theory out of the water completely. My lab is wonderufl and I love her like another of my human children, but she is not a cuddler or very affectionate. She would rather you just patted her every now and hten and doesn't really like all that mushy snuggly kissy stuff My male GSD wants nothing more than to be snuggled and cuddled and kissed and in my lap.

Corey is my first, but oh boy is she affectionate. Lots of licks, lots of snuggles (especially in the morning, when she's feeling most needy). She likes to have as much contact as possible and gets demanding for affection if I'm not paying attention to her.

Then again, back when I had a labrador, he (a male) was pretty much the same.
