First time in a puppy class....
Gunnar went to his first puppy class today at Petsmart and did awesome. He was calm and performed his commands well. Calm, also when a pit a few feet away was going crazy trying to lunge toward him (he was a nice pit just super energetic). Really proud of him. The trainer has insisted a couple times that she thinks Gunnar should be neutered. The reason is that she says he will eventually be more aggressive and bark at other dogs when his hormones start coming around (Gunnar is 3 months now). Plus, she had trained another sable dog from the same kennel which she uses as her reason. Now Gunnar is obviously a working dog and will have more drive than others but we think as long as he is socialized with other dogs consistently he won't have any issues with dogs in the future. He has a good pedigree with imported parents and we may breed him in the future and get one of his pups. Does anyone here get offended when ppl say you should get your purebred german shepherd neutered? Thoughts on possible future aggression with dogs??
Brand New GSD owner so I appreciate the comments. Thanks!
