i have a 15month old boxer pup and next door we have 2 bitches in season what can i do to stop mine going mad at the smell ?
Get him neutered. Otherwise, it's kinda cruel not to let him "visit" the females. Is your pup an inside dog?
Some don't like to neuter a male dog, but unless you are going to use him for breeding, he should be neutered. He will be a much nicer pet, neutered.
If you are concerned about his looks (for showing him) vets can do vasectomies - ours did one (un-asked) on our red-point, tabby-striped Siamese male, because the vet felt he was too beautiful to be "cut."
As well, some breeds are prone to testicular cancer if left un-neutered. My sister lost a lovely dog to that.

The hubby and I can't decide whether we should neuter our puppy. I have read both pros and cons of neutering online and it seems there are complications to both such as neutering too early can cause development issues and certain cancers and not neutering can cause roaming and prostate cancer....

I had a lady the other day in her 70'a say to me I just bought a poodle mix for $450. She goes this is ridiculous when I was a kid we called these mutts and gave them away. LOL she has a point should these "designer breeds" fetch such a big price tag. I personally don't...

I just had a comment saying that spaying and neutering should be illegal because they are more complicated procedures than cropping and docking a dog's tail.Do you agree or disagree? I thought that it would be interesting to see how many people agree with this statement.
