heh, this argument is everywhere on this forum... people have been discussing it forever. I do think it can change from dog to dog but every breeder I have spoken to (ones I really respect) have ALL reiterated that, yes, it's true that boys are more attached to you whereas girls are more aloof (in love vs. loving you), which can make boys easier to train - they really want to please you. Of course, that's a total general statement and you will find exceptions to the rule, just like you would with many rules! For example, everyone here will tell you to give your dog chicken and rice when he has soft stools but with Kubrick it doesn't help at all. That doesn't mean it won't help in 95% of cases, right? Just my own personal opinion.
Also, Kubrick still squats to pee to this day and is not a marker. In fact, I've never ever seen him "mark" anything. So that's totally dependent on the particular dog as well.
