I think the general public has this preconceived notion that aggression, marking, etc and other behavioral problems are all related to having an in-tact dog. I personally don't believe there's any inherent connection. Every dog is different. My dog is in-tact and has 0 of those issues, and is generally the best behaved dog that most people meet. People in public and at the dog park freak out if a dog isn't neutered but I honestly blame the shelter crowd for toting the adopt don't shop narrative and blame a few irresponsible people for the entire pure bred community. At his age, you're not looking at any developmental issues that would be a result of the neutering, so if you think it's necessary, go for it, but I'd work with a trainer before snipping my dog 100% of the time. I believe the main health benefit would be testicular cancer prevention, but other than that I don't think that's enough of a reason to do without seeing a trainer first. The aggression is part genetics, part learned behavior, it won't magically go away if you neuter him though. Training will be required no matter what course of action you take.
