Should I get a male or female Cavalier?

If I were to have only one Cavalier, I’d want a male. The common saying in cavaliers is, “Females love you, but males are in love with you.” I have found this to be true of every Cavalier I’ve owned. The males tend to really adore their owners. The females tend to be more aloof and love whomever they choose at that particular moment. It is a common misconception that male dogs have issues with dominance with their owners and other animals. With Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, it is the females that establish dominance hierarchies, and the males just go along with the flow. Two female cavaliers in the same household will generally have some issues with dominance, whereas two males will not. A one male/one female combination will not have dominance issues either, as the female will run the house.
