sorry but here's a silly question....

We got our puppy to be a family member first but have been thinking about posibaly trying out some high level training and if she can, Schutzhund as her parents both did and she seems to have the drive for it.

So here is my silly question... right now she is just 4 months old and has not been fixed, can they be fixed to compete in Schutzhund events or be titled or do they need to remain intact??

Hope eveyone is enjoying their sunday!

They can be fixed and still compete in Schutzhund Trials.

They can be fixed to compete, but for a working prospect I'd wait until she is at least 18 months old to let her mature before spaying.

I agree with Catu. If you want to do any sort of athletic sport with your dog then wait until she is more mature before you spay her.
