    It's been quite a few years since I've been looking for a breeder, so I do appreciate hearing the answers to these questions. Things change all the time and all of the breeders I used to deal with have retired. I'll be looking again in the next few years, so the discussion of contracts is interesting to me.

    That‘s some good thoughts. The size aspect probably does play a role with giant breed. Many people who get a giant dog might as well go for the largest possible (not saying this is right). I personally didn‘t want to deal with females going into heat (regardless of the breed). Apart from that, I have always liked males better, but not for any particular reason.

    I think it depends on the actual breeder. As we generally only sell pets that are to be spayed/neutered then we don't price genders different. Some price females higher as they tend to be the backbone of a program and while you can't stud them out to bunch of waiting females you can however breed them every cycles and sell pups for a premium price (this is not something I advise or would consider a responsible breeder doing but it does happen.)
