I'm possibly going to be getting a Pomeranian, if I find the right breeder.

I have been doing a lot of reading lately and what one website said about Pomeranians has stuck in my head. Basically they said that male Pomeranians are a better pet to have, they are easier to train (toilet training and general training) and are more affectionate, where as the girls aren't so easy to train, are very stubborn and they are not that affectionate.

So, what's your preference, do you prefer a sex over the other? If so, which one? and would you say that there's any truth in saying that male Poms are easier to train and the females aren't? I personally would have thought they were not all the same and someone couldn't generalize them like that thinking

I have 3 males and they were pretty easy to potty train. 2 are extremely affectionate and like to be where ever I am. the other one is much more independent.

I think it all depends on the dog & the breeder. Zoe is doing amazing with potty training & is so affectionate. I've heard that males are "better" but I just love my little girl smile

I'm definitely more bonded with my male. It could be because I've had him longer, it could be because my female is a rescue and has had a lot more to overcome before she learned to trust, it could be because of the gender. There's too many variables to say for sure. If you're not forced to pick, you may let your breeder choose your dog based on the one that will fit your personality/lifestyle best.

I was set on a female, but a male stole my heart. He was easy to potty train & he is such a love bug. I think that the males are like this if they are nuetered. Their minds are off of girl chasing & on you!

Thank you everyone for your replies smile

Well, I've since chosen my puppy, a little boy. I have to wait about another 4-5 weeks though as he's still very young, so at least I have time to get everything sorted and prepare myself for lots of mischief laugh out loud. I also need to think of a name, normally I wait until they are here with me and think of a name but this time I'm going to think of something before pup comes home.

How lucky you are! I would love to have another pom, but my DH says one is enough! He loves Wicker, but we're on the go too much to take on another.
