Mine was 3 when I had to neuter him due to health issues. He never roamed...never once did he show any signs of roaming or anything. My dog is never out of my sight. Ever! If he is outside, I'm outside. And we are usually engage in play of some sort. He has grown up knowing that I'm THE BEST thing in his life and given the chance to go to my neighbors house to play or stay home and play with me...he always chooses me. This brings up another point, I don't like people engaging with my dog. If they want a dog to pet, get their own! I don't want my dog getting play, treats, or anything "good" from anyone that is not a close family member. He has to think that I give him all the love, fun, food, treats that he wants, and there is nothing that can even compare outside of our little universe.
If you are the kind of person who wants to leave the dog outside to his own vices, then there is a potential of having issues. Or if you think it is ok for your dog to enjoy all the goodness that strangers want to give him, then you have the potential of your dog seeking that attention away from you...leading to roaming, mating, etc.
