This is a really tough question for me. For dogs, it depends on the breed. If I'm looking for a guard dog, I'll pick a male. If I'm looking for a lapdog, female.
For rats, I prefer females because they tend to be more active and don't tend to smell as much.
As for bettas, no preference yet since I have yet to own a female.

I prefer my dogs to be females. Most other pets I don't care. With fish I usually hope there are both males and female so I have a chance to breed them.

I prefer male to female. I'm a guy so I guess I relate to the males better.

If given the choice, 9 times out of 10, female. Especially in dogs. I can't stand it when boys always lift their leg on flowers and everything, haha. Though I have rescued male dogs before.

When it comes to fish, it doesn't matter.

It depends on the pet. For rats, I prefer boys. I've never found them to smell (could have something to do with the daily cleanings :p) because they are such laid-back squishes. I love nothing more than when I am sitting in my favourite chair and my fat boy Hyde waddles up my chest and plonks himself down in *his* special spot on my right shoulder.
That being said, I am planning to neuter my boys and have girls as well, because they do have their own sweet charm, but if I had to choose I'd always have boys. I also prefer that boys are less likely to die of cancer.

For the reptiles I plan to have (a blue-tongue, a shingleback and a bearded dragon), I am going to have boys, I think, simply because of the health reasons.

For other animals, I'd get whatever I fell in love with. :)

Dogs and cats I prefer male. I'm not much of a gardener so I don't care about the male pee. I actually haven't had a problem with my 20lb terrier and my natural growth yard though. I just find female cats and dogs more picky and prissy (won't go for a walk in the rain! sissy)
I haven't had a male rabbit before but I think my spayed female is prissy and sossy so I would try a male next. I hear neutered males are best kind. Females are so territorial, even with their tubes tied!!
Betta, I just like males better. Call me shallow!

I prefer female dogs.... more belly to rub and never that wierd moment when you weren't paying attention all the way and went to rub their belly... XD
I don't have a preference for anything else.. though males are usually more mellow and more sociable for ALL animals

i dont mind any particular gender for pets. im still at the point where any one that catches my eye gets chosen. as for betta, i do prefer males but id have loved if my betta in the avy was a female as per the original plan. original plans dont always go as desired especially if the color pattern i s hard to come by for my green dt. if anything im still looking for a green marble female betta of similar colour pattern, tail type is less important.
