If you have ever owned a male and female Doberman or know Dobermans of both genders very well please tell me which gender you prefer and why?

Play hard, sleep- well.

I think that either gender would be a good choice. Although I personally prefer females, I have met some male dobermans and they have extremely good temperaments.
Female: Females are usually a bit smaller than males and usually are calmer (except for mine)! They usually are more serious and have less of a sense of humor ( according to a book I read, but my girl is pretty hilarious).
Male: Males are usually bigger than females, weigh more and are stronger ( my girl is strong though). They tend to have a sense of humor. They are also very energetic.
So just go with a dog that you feel is a good fit. Remember, every dog is different!
