If you walk with your and another dog walker asks you if they are female or male the only viable answer is "I don't know".

Humans don't understand dog language so how would you know what they identify as?

@RoboePi Why don't you think dogs are self-aware?

The question about the gender of my dog actually comes from the misbelief by the other person that two male dogs will get into a fight. But that is just a self fulfilling prophecy. If you fear that your dog will fight, your dog will feel your fear and try to protect you (or run away).

@paulakreuzer Aaaaah, now I understand the point!
I'm sure we agree that the missconception is that gender has something to do with the inclination towards violence! ☮️
