Am I alone in this or do you freaks do it too?
No dude, no. You're giving it away.
You have to correctly sex the dog, otherwise the owner will think you messed up on purpose. He's expecting you to intentionally mess up.
That's why you need to ironically be right.
this, when someone gets the sex wrong, I assume they did it intentionally and are a creeper
though when someone gets the sex right, I assume they are trying to hide the fact they are a creeper, and are thus a creeper

Dog owners have to spend a huge portion of the time time they spend with their dogs, looking at their genitals or watching them shit. Its the unfortunate obligation of being an owner.
Nobody is going to care what gender you assume their animal is, unless you point and say "WELL JUDGING BY THE BIG OL' PENIS BETWIXT YER DOGS LEGS, I'D SAY THAT THARS A HANDSOME BOYH, MMMHMM."
Male dogs are usually on the bigger size for their breed, have wider/larger skulls and wider bodies. This would however be harder to tell in mutts.
Pic related, two boxers. Without looking at their junk, you can see a difference.
Usually I just go with something along the lines of "Wow, you dog has a beautiful velvety vulva. Are they a boy or a girl?"
That way I don't misgender their dog and I don't seem like a creeper. :))
No, I don't do that, OP.
It's not like dogs wear clothes, so spotting whether it's male or female is pretty easy just with a glance. No one will think you're a creeper for noticing a fairly obvious trait about their dog.
Plus, as others have said, you can usually tell male and female dogs apart by their general body/skull structure. If I don't notice the sex of the dog obviously from a penis or lack-there-of, I usually make an assumption based on other traits and go with that, and I get clarification if I'm wrong.
It's not a big deal. No one gets weirded out or offended if you correctly guess or notice their dog's gender. No one is assuming "that guy's staring at my dog's junk!" That's just weird.
