Yes, as with all thing male vs female there is a difference in behaviors and personality. Now I am not saying a male shiba are not great dogs, they are. But in my experience they are much more difficult. Especially if you have or are planing on have more than one dog. Shiba males are very protective of you as their human. I currently have three shibas two female and one male. Now I love my male to death but he is the biggest pain. He is more aggressive. I personally think that the females tend to be more cuddly and have better more playful personalities.

I've always preferred males. Females (of any breed or species, really) tend to be more unpredictable and temperamental. Males do tend to be more protective, but if they're well trained then I see as a positive. My male shiba isn't possessive about toys or food, but he is very protective of our apartment and of me. But, again, he's been very well socialized and likes people, so as long as a stranger doesn't just walk in by themselves, then there's no problem.
