    I had a litter born 6 years ago with only one female of 7 pups (and yes, most of the deposits wanted females!) When I was talking to the sire's owner about it, he said his dog's litters had all been mostly male, including one that had 14....all males.

    I have no experience with AI, however, the last three litters, with the same Sire and Dam, produced 2 females and 17 males.

    The sire definitely determines the sex of the pups. I bred a male that has produced half female pups and half male pups in three different litters. He was a singleton himself. I used a male as a sire once and got one male and seven females pups. When looking for a stud dog, it is probably a good idea to ask what he has produced if he is proven.

    One of my females in her last litter had all males. Her current litter has all females. In the all male litter she was bred near the start of her heat cycle. The last litter she was bred on the 26th day of her heat cycle. ....go figure...

    It's my understanding after two frozen surgical breedings that frozen then thawed sperm don't swim and that is why the timimg and injection directly into the uterine horns is so critical.
    Field Trials are competitions....not everyone gets a "participation ribbon" and they do "keep score"
