MALE OR FEMALE ALASKAN KLEE KAI. (WHICH ONE IS BETTER)?

Many people believe that female dogs make better pets as opposed to males. Keep in mind that in the dog pack makeup, females usually rule the roost and determine the pecking order. The females, as a result, are more independent, stubborn, and territorial than their male counterparts. Most fights will usually break out between 2 females. Males on the other hand can be more affectionate, attentive, and even demanding of attention. Despite this information being true in most cases, the nature of our alaskan klee kai, that we breed and raise is the perfect combination for anyone!
They are all very attached to their people/family. They also tend to be more steadfast, reliable, and constant companions.

Males do tend to get a little larger than females. Neutered males rarely exhibit the behavior of marking or humping. Once the testosterone level recedes, after neutering, most of these behaviors will disappear. Males who are neutered early (by 5 months of age) usually don’t ever raise their leg to urinate.

Females will usually come to you for attention but when she has had enough she will move away. Males are always waiting for your attention and are near at hand. attention but when she has had enough she will move away. Males are always waiting for your attention and are near at hand.

Before deciding on male or female give careful thought to other animals and people in your home. A female usually only bonds with one person (generally the main caregiver) and a male tends to bond with the whole family. If you already have a dog in your family it is usually best to purchase a puppy of the opposite sex, for a second dog. Having said that, two neutered males will generally get along well with each other. Two spayed females can be “iffy”!
