Hubby and I are having a discussion on the benefits of training male dogs versus female dogs. I feel and have always heard that males are easier to train and more biddable so to speak whereas the female tends to be a little more independent. Hubby feels the opposite. Right now the only female dog I have ever owned is a terrier so not sure if the way she acts would be the same in the GPW breed. She is most definitely INDEPENDENT.

Any other thoughts/opinions/observations on this subject?

In my humble opinion I like working with females. to me they have always been easier to work with and they don't have to pee on every thing they walk by. I have been training dogs for 15 years for field work and I will always own a female. I just like them better.

IMO...females are sneakier while males will just give you the old "Italian salute" to your face. But, good stable dogs of either sex have more similarities than differences.
