Humping is dominance.

Neutered dogs pick on intact dogs. I haven’t noticed it but that is one reason daycares won’t take intact dogs, as most of their clients neuter dogs. Every daycare told me that when I said I was not going to neuter. It is their personal experience.

@Jax08 I'm in CA, USA! I moved from Surrey, UK early 2017. So it was right of you to think I'm in the UK 🙂

Yes... My trainer has asked me to neuter my dog asap... And said that 1 year is definitely ok to neuter...

@LuvShepherds huh. I've never thought of it that way. That makes sense (other than avoiding 'accident litter' in the day care).

Some people look at me like I'm a villain when I tell them my 1 year old, 80lb GSD is still intact. Honestly. Get a life.

You do know that food and toys are a no no in a dog park and is almost a guarantee for a dog fight? It has nothing to do with dogs that are intact or neutered. The only cure for that is to remove all food / toys or remove your dog.

Also, I wonder if you know that hormones can have a calming affect on a mature dog that starts to show up at two years or older? Nothing like calm confidence if you have ever seen it.

Time itself is a very powerful component of learning. So learn to wait. Learn to forgive. Learn to backup. It's all necessary for learning.

Teach! Teach! Teach! Be fair to your dog!

@MineAreWorkingline of course I know. But the parks I go have a lot of tennis balls around. A LOT. And people still bring toys from home... And gets annoyed if other dog steals it. Like, how does a dog supposed to know it belongs to him and his dog? Lol

Um...see the part where the other alternative was to remove your dog. Taking him to a dog park full of dogs and balls is setting him up for failure. Neutering won't fix that.

There are a wide assortment of trainers in the U.S. Why don't you look up an IPO club and see who they recommend in your area.

Thanks for your suggestion but this isn't an issue of 'dog parks ok or not.' Dog parks is a part of our days, I live in an apartment so dog parks is his time to run around all he wants.

Thanks Jax! I'd definitely be looking into it. Still have one session left with our current trainer so we'll see how that goes.
