New to DT - question about gender
This is my first post on the street forum. I'm planning on getting my Doberman over the next few months from PennyLane Dobermans.
My only question is whether to get a male or female. I've read many prior discussions on dt from other users, but figured I'd give you my background and you can all chime in on your opinions.
I live with 2 people. There are no other pets in our house. My parents, who don't live with me, have a male neutered shiba inu and a female siberian husky. I see my family twice a week after work for a few hours and once on the weekend for longer. Most of the time this is at their house. My good friend also has a 7 month old German Shepard. I will be seeing them once a week or so.
I've never owned a large breed dog but have helped my good friend raise his gsd.
I've read that first time dobe owners are recommended to get females, although I'm not entirely sure why.
I've also read the general gender traits for the dobe and know they're generalizations.
Now knowing my background, what is everyone's thoughts?
