    Default Male or female?

    From what I've heard, there is no big temperament difference between male and females ebs. Eventually my husband and I plan onhaving kids, so temperament is a big deal for us. Has anyone had an experience where they would highly recommend one over the other? I'm looking very hard at the parents temperament, hoping that will give us an idea of what the pup will be like!

    I think temperament is part genes and part owner.

    The temerpment does stem from genes and good breeding. I would find a good reputable breeder and spend sometime with the parents. I have a male EBD and a female Pitbull...They do have different attitudes but I dont know much of a difference. Part of temper is also the way the dog is being trained. Hope this helps..there will be other by with more advice

    As long as both are spayed or neutered, it really depends on the dog, breeding and training.

    I would say it's mostly to do with how you bring your bully up ... you know what they say ... there is no such thing as a bad dog, just a bad owner.

    I'll weigh in on the males vs females side! LOL All the male dogs I have ever had (or fostered) have always been way more easy going than the females! The females always seem to be a little more persnickety when it comes to other dogs. I can only speak for my own personal experiences though!

    I think most of the replies confirmed what I had thought. Just wanted to see if I was wrong in my assumptions!

    I have 2 males, although one acts like a puppy and runs, chases and plays, he'll calm down and stay still when he sees kids. I think this stems from his upbringing when he was a baby, his breeder brought him up with little kids in the house.

    My other male, he joined our fam late last year at 4.5 y.o. He's a complete angel and is very laid back, but loves getting attention from people and can be a little rough. He's the one we have to watch since he still play bites, which I think is due to his previous owners not training him in that aspect.

    So on top of getting your eb from a reputable breeders, training is also very important. My next pup will certainly be from someone who raises them with small kids though, as I'm so amazed with how our younger one acts with them.

    I agree here, I have only ever had 1 female and the others have been males and my female (pug) was aggresive with children ok till they were about 1 year old after that she was not very nice would snap at them if they touched her things and the male (pugs) were afraid of her, apart from that she was a beautiful dog I guess she was a typical Beitch LOL!!
