Male German Shepherd vs female German Shepherd
We've only ever owned female dogs - my husband and I have had 2 GSDs together (and he had one before we met) -2 standard coats and 1 plush coat. Now we've met a long coat male who seems lovely.
Is gender simply a matter of personal choice? We always chose females because (in our minds) they don't pee everywhere like males do, they don't smell as much as males do, they don't 'advertise' their gender like males do and females are more 'into' you than males - males tend to want to do their own thing more - but that might just be our perception!
And I'm a bit daunted by the big coat of a long coat - is it true they don't drop as much fur (but it's more sticky) how hard is grooming a long coat?
