When you have chosen the sort of breed that is most suitable for you, the next essential decision that you will need to make is whether you want a male or female dog, often known as a “dog” or a “bitch,” depending on the relevant terminology. Do not be put off by the word “bitch,” despite how harsh it may appear to be; sadly, in the world of dogs, “bitch” is the correct nomenclature for a female puppy or dog. There are positives and negatives associated with both sexes, just as there are in human beings. While your own preference for one or the other may sway your decision, here are some things to consider if you are still on the fence about it:
