Does your dog prefer boys or girls?

Gryff definitely has a female thing going on. He likes the chicks. We know he is totally obsessed with me at the expense of my husband and son. My Mom and Stepdad are visiting and he is totally drawn to my Mom. Whenever we go out, he walks right up to the girls and flirts with them.

I guess the only thing I can do about it is get another Havanese and see if they like the rest of my family. If not, we'll get another! I think three should do the trick.

Roxy loves me, of course, because I am her mommy, BUT she gives my husband and son lots of "kisses" that I don't get! If she is on the couch with the three of us, she gravitates toward my husband. When she gets frightened (easily I might add), she comes to me for protection.

Casper is really a daddy's boy...craves time with dad, maybe because he is with me so much. When it comes to people we meet, Casper's favorite is 9-12 yr old girls... they will sit with him for along time and tell him how cute he is and pet him and make a fuss over him. He soaks it up like a sponge

Missy doesn't show any favorites yet, she just loves everyone!

My boys are very attach to me. But they are at the door with tails wagging, when they hear someone else comming home. They have always been very affectionate with everyone in the household and with anyone who walks through my door.

Peace, Love & Havanese

In the dog world, and people world...Gucci prefers more "mellow" people. Laid back, fun, easy going, friendly, etc.

She does love toddlers, but once she's tired playing with them or other kids, please leave her be to nap.

I've noticed she will police hyper dogs, alot like Amanda's Belle!

I can't say she prefers males to females or vice versa? She holds ME highest on the food chain, but then it would be my hubby second, and out of my 7 kids...I'd say she likes the 18, 15, 12, and 10 yo the best (which are 2 boys and 2 girls) lol

I can't see a pattern with Guch

Kubrick definitely prefers women over men. He loves to PLAY with men, but he will follow women around when they come over. It's like he has a crush on them or something.

This thread is funny!

Lito prefers men over women. He will always seek out tall men in the room and try and get them to play with him. I wondered if this trait was from his days living at Kimberly's home, because her DH is tall and he loved to play with Lito.

Kristin, that is probably likely because I have noticed that all of my dogs are really drawn to men. When we went to New Mexico, both Hillary and Piaget went nuts over Julie's husband and had to have his attention when he first came home. When family comes over, Grandpa and the various uncles get the first kisses and return visits, even though they shower all guests with attention. Men definitely rank higher with my dogs. I still outrank everyone, but...

Rufus just LOVES everybody! I haven't noticed a preference to male or female at all, but he does get a bit more excited when there are children nearby. At home, as long as I am here he will spend time with my hubby, my son or me, but if I'm gone he goes a bit crazy! My boys tell me he actually says ma-ma is this creepy howly way. I sure wish they could catch that on film!
