Difference between a girl and a boy
In my house Roscoe my male is very independant he wants to be in my lap and be held when he wants it. He always has to sleep "spooned" with me though and always has to know where I am though and tends to stay in the same room just not right below my feet. He is just more independent. He is 11 months old. Sukie my female is 19 weeks old and is so attached to me. She freaks if she can't see me or if she is not right by me. Lord help me if I shut the bathroom door and she is not in there with me. She sleeps by my face and no matter where I am she has to be right there and cires and barks when she wants to be held and I am trying to clean or work. She doesn't even like to play with my DH or kids just me and Roscoe. In the end though I am their favorite person just one is more dependent and one is more independant.
So in your house is your male of female more attached to you? I want to see if there is a difference between the sexes and their attachment to male or female.

Well. I only have 1 yorkie, a 18 week old male .
I also have a 6 year old male airedale & a 2 year female shih tzu
all nuetered, whether that makes a difference i don't know.
They all love both myself and my husband
but the airedale is daddy's boy
and the yorkie and the shih tzu are mamma's

I have had a boy and a girl..my sweetheart is both independent and likes to cuddle..my boy was not very independent.But it really has to do more with the parents, genetics and social skills I think

Both my boys want to cuddle with me all the time. Bogey is on my lap as soon as I sit down. He's my little love bug. Doodlebug likes to be on my lap but it's not a necessity . Right now he's curled up sleeping on my couch. Then there is Pebbles~hardly ever wants to cuddle with me but will want to sit with my husband. They all need to be in the same room with us but Doodlebug will go in my bedroom and burrow under the blankets and sleep all alone. Overall, I think my boys are way more cuddly. Bogey is by far the biggest lovebug of my bunch

I think pets, just like people have certain personalities. I have a male Yorkie and a female English Springer Spaniel. Both of them are just sweet sweet dogs. Both of them absolutely love and adore me.
I also have 3 kids, one is away at college, the oldest just graduated from college and lives in an apt., so I only have one living at home - the only difference I notice is that my Yorkie is very attached to me - he is happy to see my son, that lives at home, but he never leaves my side, the ESS is happy to be with me, but at 3:00 when my son comes in from school the ESS hangs out with him. When my other 2 kids come home the ESS is thrilled to see them and will follow them all over the house - my yorkie gets excited to see them yet
still follows me around. Charlie is just very loyal to me. I don't feel like that's a male/female thing as much as it's just the personality of the dogs...? I think it is more important to choose a pet based on the breeder, it's breeding, etc....that seems to matter more than the sex of the dog... In any case, that is what I have experienced...

I only have 1. My little boy and I are attached at the hip. He follows me everywhere, has to share my chair, and will only eat if I'm home. We cuddle together at night, often with him fast asleep in my arms.
We miss you Kaji

Lola is very independent and always on the move, LOL I swear my yorkie group must think she doesn't like me since she seems to want no part of me at a meetup. She just romps with all the other dogs that dare to get off their owners laps, but as soon as she thinks I am headed for the door she is by my side. She does not like to be cuddled for more than a few moments, but likes to be very close by, now she is under my desk chair. She has a lot of hair so perhaps she gets warm if to close. I have had two males that were polar opposite, one that could be cuddled and kissed all day and one that turned his face away and wanted his own space. My other female seemed to like to be cuddled but then when she was about 14 months I got a male puppy, she was never the same after that, my husband said he thinks she never forgave us. She did not get mean just a touch more aloof. To me I have not noticed much difference between male and female, but all mine have been neutered by 6-7 months.

I believe it comes down to the individual doggy, so not every dog will fit perfectly into generalizations.
Max & Teddy's breeder told me that she loves her girls, but her boys are affectionate, cuddly ones. My boys are that way -- very affectionate and cuddly, very playful.
There is a lot of debate over which gender is easier to train. I had zero problems training my boys.
I would love to have a girl to fuss over and dress up, but with my luck, I would end up with a tomboy.

I think every dog is different. My Lucky was a major Mama's boy as is Buddy. Buddy is my shadow. Cozy is a Mama's girl. Roxy and Zoey see humans only as their servants and playthings. Lucy is a Daddy's girl. She adores my dad and the feelings are mutual for him.
Beware of Nestle Purina Cozy (4/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/08), Lucy (4/09); Buddy 4/09- Rescued 12/11); Mika ('98) & Tallulah ('00) RIP Harley 4/2009; Lucky 11/2010; Zoey 4/2012

Katie Scarlett is the only dog we have ever owned and she is such a diva! She thinks she has to be with someone (mostly me) every second or she doesn't like it one bit. I am a stay at home wife at the present and I know that has a lot to do with it. She goes every single place we go and if she can't go in with us one of us stays outside or if it's a long day, she goes to day care. She adores other people, but she just has to be with someone. She can't be alone. When we are home, she has to follow me every where I go. You name it she is always 2 steps behind me, but I don't mind. Not having any skin kids, it's nice to have someone need me so much. She does sleep in her big girl bed next to our bed, but I have to cuddle with her before bed and first thing in the morning. Everyone says 'she loves her Momma or she knows who her Momma is' because no matter how many people are in the room, she comes to find me and make sure she knows where I am at all times. She is such a Momma's girl, but I love it. My hubby works odd hours and is gone a lot, so she is like my constant companion. But I can see how she would not be the perfect dog for every owner. I know she would no be happy with someone who leaves her alone alot or doesn't have as much time to devote to her as I do. I often worry if we ever do have skin kids of our own how she will take it. I hope she will be ok. I honestly believe she thinks she is a human not a dog. LOL

I have had both....Vivi, my female was a cuddlebug and so is Bear, my male. I think it is the individual dog and not the sex. I have always heard that boys are the cuddliest but in my case, both were and are mama's dogs.
Rest in peace my sweet angel dog, Lavinia Hyacynth, Vivi. I love you forever.
Bear healed my broken heart!

I have both a boy and a girl. Chloe is super independent and likes to spend most of her time on her own chewing unless dad is home and then she will cuddle up with him.
Teddy on the other hand is my little shadow and follows me everywhere. He is happiest when he is somehow touching me even if it is only with his tail. DH says that when I'm not home he mopes and picks fights with his sister. If we are both gone for a longer period of time he will find something of mine to destroy / chew to let me know he is upset he got left and I wasn't home.
I think it depends on the personality of the dog as to who it is going to fit most with. I don't think it is a gender thing. When we fostered a female yorkie for our friends who deployed, she only wanted to be near me where as it is the opposite with our two.

I've never had a male yorkie but so far my experience with females have been sweet. Daisy, my 1 year old maltese, is quite the cuddle bunny not as much as my 3 year old yorkie, Tessa. Speaking of which Miss Tessa always follow me or my boyfriend and insists on being the center of attention!
While I've never encouraged this behavior, she is the needy diva type. Her sister on the other hand is less clingy but learns her bad behavior (like whining and yapping) from bratty Tessa. lol
