Re: Male or Female

I completely agree with this statement. I have a male and female. In my opinion what they say about the difference between males/females is true. Males tend to be a bit clingy and emotional, while females are a bit more bossy and independent. However, vizslas in general are a very clingy breed, but I think you can train any dog to do almost anything. I think either is a great choice, but my male will not leave my side. I have a shadow 24/7. My female loves to cuddle more, she need to lay my me. Where my male, like the floor to spread out.

Re: Male or Female

I am a breeder, love all the posts, I have around 70 dogs under my belt. MALE v FEMALE, no difference what so ever apart from size and dangley bits.
Sensitive, aloof, sulky, head strong, loyal - these are all traits at different times by both sexes.

Re: Male or Female

I'm getting a new Vizsla pup in two weeks. I visited several different breeders in my seach. One breeder explained the difference between males and females as "The females will love you but the males will be in love with you".

Re: Male or Female

In general Males mature more slowly than females. Out of the box a female is at a much higher level as far as trainablity. We've had males and female V's, and there both great. The heat thing can totally screw up a female for 30-60 days if they are not intact, which seems to always screw up hunting season.

Males on the other hand start out more immature, but graudally in my opinion exceed a females potential (unless they are sprayed) as they age.

Re: Male or Female

We got a male...we originally wanted a female because they are "supposed" to be easier to train. When talking with our breeder, she said males are more affectionate and females are, well, bitches. They have more of a "when I want to" kind of attitude and are actually a bit more headstrong. But like everyone else here says, V's are just affectionate dogs! And our male has been the easiest dog I've ever trained!!!

And, as the old saying goes, it wouldn't be hunting season without your bitch in heat. Murphy's Law I think they just go hand in hand! We did decide to get our male neutered (only because we found out I'm pregnant) and just wanted one last thing to deal with since he was starting to become more interested in the ladies. Otherwise, he was a very submissive guy to other males before then, and I was just concerned because the other male dogs (even neutered) always seemed to single him out to put on the ground. I would have hated for anything to escalate. But, with you being in the country, you might not have as many encounters. And, it is always possible for males to roam. The labs my dad had when I was young were intact and would be gone for days (but my dad didn't do the best job at training/keeping them around!).

I think no matter what you chose, you will have a very loyal companion. Good luck and have fun!

Re: Male or Female

Thanks to all for the advice.
I am probably going to get a male. I do like the more built look in a dog and the loyal mateship relationship.

If he is not neut. does it create alot of problems fighting with other dogs? Or roaming looking for a bitch on heat?

In my opinion what they say about the difference between males/females is true. Males tend to be a bit clingy and emotional, while females are a bit more bossy and independent. However, vizslas in general are a very clingy breed, but I think you can train any dog to do almost anything.

We have a male vizsla and a female gsp, we got a male first because I wanted a large vizsla... as it turns out he's a peanut weighing in at around 48lbs and maybe 1-2 inches short for a male. Go figure the female is on pace to be enormous, her paws at 4 months are big enough to be catcher's mitts.

I think male female comes down to personal preference. I don't think you'll be disappointed either way. One more thing to consider is that females that aren't going to be bred will need to be spayed, unless you're prepared to have them in heat a few times a year. Males, neutered or not don't have that issue.
