I hear you guys all talking about spaying your females, but nothing about the boys. Do you guys think it would be a good idea to get Deuce neutered, or is it not a big deal. Whats your opinion. Poor guy, mom's talking about his little peanuts all over the web. He would be so ashamed.

Definately neuter him. Males and females should both be fixed. If he is not going to be bred, what is the reason to keep his "boys"?

Well, I believe he has grown quite fond of them. Plus my husband is a typical dumb guy. He doesn't want to do it. I need some info to give him on why we shouldn't breed him. Believe me we won't, but he doesn't understand why. He thinks even if we aren't going to breed him we shouldn't have him snipped. What should I tell him to get it through his thick skull.

I seriously cannot understand why some guys have that midset. Maybe it just makes them feel like more of a man when they are walking a dog and it has a big set swinging in the wind. Just go get him clipped and the put in a pair of neuticles. That'll make him happy. http://www.neuticles.com/index1.html

Say it with me: Dogs do NOT have a psychosexual identity.

They don't have an awareness of their "intact" or "neutered" state. By neutering Deuce, you will not be taking anything from him that he knows he has, nor will he "miss" them!

But if you are really convinced that he'll miss having his little nuts hang down, check out this site:
http://www.neuticles.com/ Yup, you can get him falsies!

In my opinion, the "post-neutering stress" that they refer to is a bunch of hooey. I've met plenty of neutered dogs and NOT ONE struck me as "missing a familiar body part". When we had to remove one of Chyna's toes, she didn't mourn over the loss. Frankly, if someone knocked you out and removed your appendix without telling you, you wouldn't miss this "familar body part" either!!

Bubba is getting snipped May 12th. If you aren't going to breed your dog then there is no reason for your dog to keep them. It is part of your responsibilty to control pet population. You may always have an eye on your boy but I assure you he has his eye on the lady next door :D

Do yourself a favor and have your vet do it before he gets too big. You pay by the pound not the job.

Believe me, I want to get him spayed, maybe it will keep pinky from coming out to say hi. But my husband is the problem. As for those implants, WHAT THE HECK. That is freakin rediculous. What is the purpose? Some people have way to much money on their hands. If they don't know how to spend it why don't they just give it to me instead. Anyone have any good reasons I could give my husband for not breeding him, and getting him neutered?

For the breeding, just make him read this page: http://www.woodhavenlabs.com/breeding/breeder2.html

As for neutering: Less potential for aggression. Males who are intact can get sexually frustrated and lead to aggression. It can also cause them to run away to find a female that is in heat in the neighborhood. Who knows if you would ever see him again. Less chance of testicuar cancer. Can make the dog hump less....

Tell your husband that he has his own testicles - he doesn't need his dog's hangin' down there. :wink:

It's like - well I can't show my own in public, but darn it, I can show his!! :)

Come on guys, I'm at work. Its all quiet in my office and I just start laughing out of nowhere. They are going to think I'm crazy. That was a good one. Seems like that is whats going on in his head sometimes.

I kind of regret getting Koa done at 4 mos. I think I would liked to have done it after he was finished growing. I felt so much pressure from everyone to have it done since I wasn't breeding -- but really, Heaven is spayed, and my dogs are either indoors or in a fenced yard. It really could have waited till he was done growing. I feel I deprived him of much needed testosterone. I don't know though, maybe it was for the best.

I've read and been told that, particularly after they reach the age of 5 years, their chances of getting testicular cancer GREATLY increase if they aren't neutered. I'm probably getting Mosley done this summer. Especially since I have Messiah now, furthering the breed another generation. What I need is another female, but I'm not allowed until I can build them an heated/AC'ed kennel and fenced yard/kennel.

Are you worried that neutering him early may cause a decrease in his quality of life as he gets older? Or are you more worried that he won't grow to his full potential?

I don't think it will have any effect on the quality of his life, or even his size. But I think it affected his development in some aspects.
