Dog breeds that are more popular with women include the English Bulldog, the Boxer, the Chihuahua and the Labradoodle. In addition, Pugs, Schnauzers, Poodles and Border Collies tend to be popular with female owners.
Picking a dog breed isn't just a matter of gender; it's also a matter of personality and lifestyle. Nevertheless, gender can still be a factor.
English Bulldogs are lazy dogs, which makes them ideal for women living in small apartments. Plus, they are very agreeable and rarely attack humans.
While Boxers tend to have very sweet personalities, they are also loyal, meaning that if one's owner is attacked, it is likely to defend her. This makes them perfect for women who are fearful of being attacked. Strangely, so are Chihuahuas, because despite their small size, they are very protective.
Labradoodles are low in aggression and are hypoallergenic. For those who have very small apartments, another great breed is the Pug, because it doesn't need a lot of space. Schnauzers can also live in small apartments, especially the miniature ones. If there is more room, then the standard-sized one is an option.
Standard Poodles are great for those with allergies because they are hypoallergenic. Moreover, they are great as watchdogs, but they have gentle personalities. Finally, the Border Collie is perfect for those who love running and fitness.
