The first I'd ever heard of waiting to neuter a male for growth reasons was when I joined here.

Someone should've told my GSD/Malamute mix who ended up at 29 1/2 inches and 120lbs that he wouldn't fill out since I neutered him at 5 months. :P

For me, I don't spueter unless there is a need to. Although I don't plan on breeding my male, there isn't a need to have him neutered. I don't have any any intact females.

Next year I hope to get a puppy. If the breeder decides a female is my best choice, I think I'll get her spade before I'll get my male neutered. Mostly because it would be easier on me.

If you have a dog marking indoors that's a housebreaking/training issue.

Maybe a medical problem, like a UTI or something. But the last thing I'd be blaming it on are his glands.

Don't say that! Someone once told my husband that if he marks over the spots in his garage that Max (the intact shepherd mix I had) was marking, Max would stop.

Needless to say, it didn't work

You're talking about bleeding twice a year from going into heat? Yes, spaying stops that.

LOL!!!! See people actually believe that stuff!! Too funny!!! I almost died laughing when someone once told me that to show your dog you are alpha you just pee on it and it understands.

Yes, I have heard that from my Vet.

I voted never on both, but would if they ever had a serious problem in the reproductive organs, where spay/neuter might save their life.

Females 6-12 months, males 1-2 years. Always had good results with those time frames.
