Default Cost of male vs female question

While I lay in bed at 1am this morning with thoughts running around I came up with this question. If you purchase a female with a no-breed contract why do you have to pay more than if you bought a male? Next question, why wouldn't a male cost more than a female if you could stud him out often? In the long term he could make more money being a stud than a female having pups once or twice per year.
I hate waking up in the middle of the night and having discussions with myself. My little Zoey was cuddled up next to me sleeping away while I contemplated these issues. Lol

Because females are more in demand

When we have litters that have males, we do not automatically designate these dogs as breeding stock! It is not automatically an exercise in making money off dogs! It is strictly a supply and demand thing! My females are already sold for the next three litters off my waiting lists....I have only two males reserved! People just do not want to deal with little boys....little do they know how precious and adorable and devoted and loving those precious little boys are!

I did not mean to infer that people are in it "for the money". It was a poor choice of wording. I know the breeders here on YT care greatly about their program. I was just thinking that females with the chance of breeding would cost more but compared to studding out it could be less profitable over years. Just random thoughts durning the night. As far as which sex to get, boys are loving and just as adorable but dealing with lifting their leg inside the house is something that puts people off. Training, of course, is the key but yorkies are difficult to train as it is. I have a rescue maltese boy and he is house trained BUT he still has leg lift accidents.

My boy Dooney is more affectionate and loving than my girls. I agree that people probably don't want to deal with the potential of marking....I also read somewhere that less girls are born per litter, so again supply and demand.

Basic economic principles of supply & demand. Females are in much greater demand, so breeders can and do charge more for them, as buyers are willing to pay it.

Send me your males!! Adore them. Females are okay -

Miss Vixen here is being stubborn on not learning certain things. She is way way beyond chewing frenzies - but what did I awake to Boxing Day - she had destroyed my 14carat beautifull gold necklace . Took it off the end table

She still loves to mouth! And to jump or try to jump up to sit in my lap! She continues to try to sneak up on the living couch - but she is like a bull in a china shop - I always *hear her*

In our breed Black Russians - males are usually more in demand. It is interesting to see how often the largest males end up being owned by the most petite woman.

I don't charge more for a male than a female. Only difference in pricing would be if I have a show prospect/promise.

In terms of studding, it is rare to earn a lot from stud fees - unless you have an International winner etc. Then you can have the popular stud syndrome - not a good idea from breed diversity point of view. Plus I don't like studding out to strange females. Brucellosis is $250 every time and then there is the real risk factor when breeding a male to a female. I am going with A/I from now on.

Many breeders like to use their own studs.

In Yorkies in Canada - females appear to be in greater demand.

Females are in demand more. Reputable breeders work very hard for there lines so they only sell with a spay and neuter contract because they don't want just anyone breeder there lines and dogs. It has nothing to with which could possibly make more money just demand. Reputable breeders also don't just stud out there dogs to any one either.

Right on, Taylor.

I'm editing to add that I don't understand the preference for females for the males are so affectionate. Since more people ask for girls, the boys have to be sold for less to get them into good homes. This makes my heart hurt a lot.

God bless the little boys!!! I absolutely adore them!! I love my little sassy girls, but like ALL little girls, they can cop an attitude on you and get snarky.....those little boys just run around, trying their best with everything they do, to melt your heart with those warm liquid eyes!!! One of God's best kept secrets!

I love my boys!!! Give me a boy anytime! I had two boy dachshunds and Remy is a boy. I did have a female German Shepard who was very smart, easy to train, loveable and very protective. My cat Roxy is a girl and can pop an attitute real quick. She's got Diva Attitude. She is loveable when she wants to be loveable, but I still love her to death!

I agree with everyone who has previously posted. Supply and demand. Most people want females over males.

After having Emma I definetly see the difference between male dogs and female dogs. Males no matter the breed to me are much more affectionate, attentive, listen more and Emma makes me think that all female dogs do the excitement pee. ( i know that's not true) but I'm cautious.

Default Just a little survey

As either a kid or an adult, what was the sex of the first dog your *owned*?


/for me it was Cookie a black cocker female.probably a mix. And next family dog was a Missey Dob female mix. But we kind of adopted our neighbours male dog Renny - some sort of terrier mix I would guess. Then D'Arcy a male Harrier mix type dog.

.
I wasn't allowed to have a dog as a kid. Everyone on my mum's side of the family had a yorkie(s), except my mum...my dad called them "yappy dogs" and refused to have one in the house.

ZoE has a real bark...there is no yap to it. And while her bark grates on my ears at times, i get such a kick that she in particular barks at my dad, when shes at their home and wants to go outside. He always says something like "ew, that bark!" And I smile super sweet and respond, "at least it's not a yap!"

I didnt get my first dog, Chelsea, a yorkie until I was in my late twenties, and was married with a 3 & 5 yr old.

I think I gravitate more toward females not to say if a male rescue fell into my lap that was perfect I would be fine with that or if he needed me. I'm lucky to have a female with a lovely attitude but is extremly loving and scary smart. Sammy my moms male is funny because he is so chill if Callie gets a bit bossy or anything he is like ok whatever and happily does something else. He did get an infection once where liquid had to be put in his boy part and swashed around and then let come out and that just seemed terrible. Our first dog was when I was 8 she was a lab mix we rescued from a person my mom went to high school with they kept her chained up outside and she never had food or water. After she got used to being inside and stuff she was an amazing dog like my protector and best friend she followed me every where. When I was 13 or 14 a disk in her back broke and at that time there was nothing they could do so she had to be put to sleep, first time I really ever saw my dad cry. She would chew up something of his if he made her mad lol. We had two other dogs growing up both beagle mixes one a boy and one a girl. Buddy was around 20 pounds and very affectionate at 9 they discovered he was just eat up with cancer and he was having seizures a lot and he was in pretty bad shape and had to be put to sleep. The female Hank who was my first dog thought buddy was her puppy even though she was fixed and never had puppies. She cleaned his ears and taught him a lot of stuff but when she had to be put to sleep he lost weight for a bit and was more scared of things. Daisy our female beagle mix is now 13 chubby but doing pretty well she had the female attitude when she was a puppy but as she has gotten older she has chilled out. One of the reasons I would prefer a female now is because for some reason I still have most of Callie's clothes she out grew lol. I also think Sammy does better with girls but don't really have anything to back that up.
