    I have had both, I like a well trained female , they are all business , when hunting. Especialy with strange dogs, or males. They go hunting right away. No posturing and marking the bushes. The downfall is the heat periods, when they are better at home. I guess spaying is an answer, If you want to raise pups, off your best female, that would not be an option. old243

    There is some research out there on spay/neuter which shows that intact females are more biddable & more handler-focused. But there is also lots of variability between individuals.

    With one spayed & one intact female right now I am feeling the joy of heat cycles....

    I would have preferred to keep my female intact ( as did her breeder) but I also have an intact male. When she went into heat it was crazy. Had to send her away he went insane. He has been through enough surgery and Generals I just don't want to do that to him again. She's fixed and life is grand for all of us.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    If I was to ever get a female again, it would be fixed, just not worth the headache, to me.

    I've had both sexes and enjoyed both equally.
    When it come to breeds there is big difference in temperaments and training. Must do your homework before choosing a breed.

    solid advice, you have to get the type of dog that suits your hunting needs and lifestyle, remember you aren't hunting 365 days a year, but your dog will be with you 365
