This is just something that crossed my mind just now. I’ve heard/seen many dogs associated with this, even my trainer. Though there are no studies to back it up being that every dog is entitled to their own individualism just as humans. My dog is a female and she listens to me better than my wife. My trainer has titled 2 of her males (one IPO and the other TDI). However, her female is stubborn and much harder to train (they’re going for a BH). The dog with the IPO is the father to both. I’ve read through other dog owner’s experiences and it’s usually that the male bonds with a female handler or female bonds with male handler better. Of course, this is not always the case. What’s your take on this? Do you find it true for the relationship with your dog?
