Default Do male Chi's get along?

We've just got a second Chi, our first is just 6 months old and a neutered male, our newest addition is a 10 week old male Chi pup - So far they get on ok, with the odd tussle for dominance. But we have been reading a few posts that suggests that 2 male Chi's will not get along when they reach maturity - Does anyone have a view on this? Current 2+ male chi owners welcome!!

I've got 3 male Chi's, two are 2 years old and neutered & one is 6 months old & intact. The 2 older ones are great friends & get along wonderfully. Sometimes the 6mo (Marley) will grumble at his brother (Maxie - they share dads) when he's sleeping & Maxie comes over for a snuggle...and vice versa. I correct it every time it happens. It has never gotten nasty or anything & they do play like crazy & 99.9% of the time get along wonderfully. My 6mo is just going through the adolescent phase right now & testing his boundaries & dominance.

Personally...I feel 2 (neutered) males would get along GREAT. I'd probably recommend that over 2 Females, IMO are more indepedent & opinionated while males are more laid back. Saying that, a male/female pair would work fine too because the males are so laid back & let the females do whatever they want. LOL Our 2 females get along fine but don't play together as often as they do our males. If it was just them it may be a bit different but both Marley & Maxie keep the girls busy themselves. haha

However, I most importantly feel that as long as you are a great pack leader...you can have as many pups, any sexes you want & not have any issues.

Thanks for the reply that's really helpful, they seem great together and we will definitely get the second one neutered as soon as he is big enough. I just had a moment thinking have we done the right thing after reading some articles on the web about male dogs fighting. Who knows what the future holds if this goes well perhaps we'll reach 5 too!

My two lads get on brilliantly - both neutered and aged about 2 months apart.

One of the boys doesn't like the little girl so much though - he tolerates her!

We have five boys, and they play well, with only a rare "fuss" over who gets in be in my lap..lol In my opinion, neutering them will solve 99% of the fighting issue, I find the males are more playful as a rule than our girls.

Im the oppisite! My 2 girls get on fantastic but Im not sure Adam would appreciate another boy, unless he was super submissive. Although I could tell from 6mths that Adam was a very dominant boy, he still humps and marks sometimes despite being neutered.
Personality is more important than sex IMO.

I have three intact males and they get along great with each other. The only times I have problems is when my girls come into heat, then I have seperate play times for the boys and girls in two seperate areas of the house. As long as I keep them seperate from the girls in heat everything goes pretty smoothly.

My two are only a few months apart and I brought the second one in when the first one was over a year old. He barked at the new one at first but now they're just fine. I just brought in a rescue Jack Russell AC Mix and they all get along fine.
