Male or female puppy? a look over to the Lagotto Romagnolo.
This is the most common question. A must for those who have never had a dog in the family. Who is looking for a dog as a friend and has fear of not to be able in the management. Understandable doubts that are deeply convinced do not depend on the sex of the puppy. The color of the puppy’s hair and how will be his adult cloak is the question that follows in the special ranking of frequently asked questions.
A dog is beautiful for his structure and morphology. The bearing and proportions, but above all must be a clever dog and of excellent character.
About the sex of the puppy the request is aimed to looking for a dog generally more quiet and that does not take advantage of the inexperience of the future owners. Sometimes the rumors, often false, to suggest the choice. Right information and considerations from other breed its can become a real nonsense for the breed Lagotto Romagnolo. Differences between the two sexes are there, let’s analyze it referenced to the Lagotto Romagnolo.
Lagotto Romagnolo female versus Lagotto Romagnolo male
In some breeds the difference in tonnage between the male and the female can be really important. Sometimes even 10kg of muscles. It can lead to problems in the management of walks, for example. Even if a dog at leash should never pull, who is at the first experience with a dog thinks do not immediately able to handle this situation. Even the powerfull of a male can leave doubts. For the Lagotto Romagnolo the difference is not so considerable. For the breed standard the male is 2 cm taller and 2 Kg more weight.
It is more beautiful the male or the female? I have no doubts about that!
A beautiful male specimen is superior to a beautiful female. Of course if the male is a little bit ugly than it is better a beautiful female.I can’t choose even this time!
I would not be able to give advice on beauty based on the sex of a puppy. We have to see every puppy and if one has intentions to participate in show we will have to choose according to the morphological characteristics. Surely it is not a choice that can be made with puppies of one or a few weeks old.
Character and intelligence
Here the arguments are more abstract. We are not talking about centimeters or pounds or proportions.
We would like to determine our ability to have an excellent relationship with our dog based on the attitudes that the puppy should have based on sex. I think two sexs have some character differences, I am not so sure its are which one prefer future families. I believe, the female has more intellectual abilities especially in youth. The male is more clumsy and sometimes more instinctive. With the growing it can change. The female of Lagotto can become more complex. I think it depends on the arrival of the first heat. The management of hormonal changes can influence a phase of the character growth. Physical disrupting sometimes affect the mood of the dog. The male is generally more constant and when he exceeded the adolescent he has a behavior of easier interpretation.
The heats of the female
The female’s heat often moves definly the choice of the pet puppy according to the sex. The females go in heat twice a year and for twenty days we will have to be careful in our walks.
The signs will be clearly visible in home and we must be careful to our garden it is not accessible to male dogs. Especially during our absence. Not everyone is in favor of sterilizing their dog. Taboos must be exceeded to appreciate the benefits of sterilization.
A female not involved for reproduction should always be sterilized. In the interest of the dog’s health.
With sterilization the heats disappear and there are also some character benefits that I mentioned above. And again, we will no longer be able to choose the Lagotto puppy based on the sex.
Can you choose a pet Lagotto puppy based on sex?
Who has had other dogs often asks for the same sex of puppy. A good choice if we enjoyed it.
Even if the dog was from another breed. If there are other dogs in the family the choice of the sex of the puppy can be obliged. For example, to avoid unwanted couplings or becoese we know our dog is particularly aggressive with same sex dogs. The choice of the sex of the puppy can also be made for personal considerations: “In The family I only have males human, enough! I want a girl! “or otherwise. How to blame them Ahaha. Excluding these special cases and others that at the moment escape from my mind, when we decide to enlarge our family with a puppy of lagotto we must know a lot depends on the relationship we will be able to establish with our Lagotto.
The relationship with your dog makes the difference, it is rarely a matter of sex. Our dog will trust us and we must always merit his trust and demand mutual respect.
Within the same litter we see puppies more lively or enterprising, those who arrive first to the solution and other who are more rebellious. More dynamic puppies and more calm. Character aspects that in the following months of coexistence with their new companions of life will be exalted or reduced. In the family will change the education and also the stimuli. Until the patience of future families allows us, we try to delay the association puppy-family. We want to collect as much information as we can to seek in everyone’s interest to create the right couple. Then arrive the moment that the desire to know how the puppy grows and who he is, becomes unstoppable and rightly we give up. Once the puppy leaves the mother and the brothers, and we too, the situations change. Puppy will have more spaces to give the best of himself, new friends and all the spotlight on him.
We have an unique certainty, we have given each puppy the basis for an excellent growth with beautiful families.
