    Maley bitches that scratch the dirt after they pee and lift a leg when they pee. Not alpha, had one, just male like manners. My favorite gender is aforementioned.

    To me females start faster earlier. But they do come in heat twice a year. Males for most part take more disipline. Just my 2 cent.

    I have heard that male dogs run/train better for female handlers and females run/train better for male handlers. Think there is any truth to this?? I have had both, but have only competed with females and they were/are both VERY alpha bitches and seem more hard headed and stubborn than my boy. My next competitive dog will be a male so I guess we'll see. Just curious what y'all think.

    They don't call them "bitches" for nothing. I like boys.
