Housebreaking: Males or Females Easier? Which is more reliable?

Daisy was so easy to housebreak and is 100% reliable. She doesn't even have accidents at my daughter's house: she uses their potty bell....

So I'm wondering:

Are females easier to housebreak than males?

Are females more RELIABLE than males after they're trained??

I have a male and a female and the housetraining was about equal. One was not easier than the other.
They both were about average and weren't difficult.

Is this in reference to a certain black male who was born yesterday? LOL

Same here...male and female. I can't say either was easier or more difficult. I actually think my male was easier but he also had a mentor (Evye). We have both indoor/outdoor potty and Bentley is better outside and Evye better inside.

I am wondering, is there is new pupster in the works???????

I have a male and a female and the female was much easier than the male. I think the female had early training with the breeder and the male didn't.

I don't know if that makes a big difference, but my little girl has used her pee pad from day one 95% of the time. One the my boy has been a struggle potty training.

I have two males and the experiences were totally different with each of them. Milo continues to be a challenge in the potty/marking arena while Bailey was easy, easy to train and was reliable at a few months old. So I'm not sure it's gender related as much as early training/preference to be clean.

<b>Just Milo and me, and . . . </b>Bailey makes three . . . until Ruby said, "hey, what about me?"
