Mandatory Spay and Neutering

I just read this article in Cesar Milan's website, Cesar's Way.

What are your thoughts on mandatory spay and neutering?

Licensed breeder could still be "puppy mill", so that would need to be defined.

noooooo....I agree that the majority of pets should be s/n because the owners can't keep them from breeding. However, I had a female that was 4yrs before spay. Doesn't take a genius to make sure she isn't let out alone when in heat. And the jury is still out as to the health effects of s/n. How about the ppl that show? Not breed, just show in confirmation. If they are s/n they can't be shown.

I think mandatory anything is a slippery slope. Mandatory rabies...and now we are seeing teh affects of over vaccination. Not saying rabies shouldn't be mandatory but maybe the yearly should be evaluated.

I voted no. This is between myself and my vet and what is right for my dog. Everyone else needs to MYOB.

why does everyone else think they know what's best for everyone else? Seriously. I used to think breeders really needed to be regulated, now I could care less because it really doesn't matter.

if someone has 400 breeding dogs stacked on top of each other in sheds producing puppies by the thousands, they do it because people buy them.

The guy that spends 150 bucks for two dogs out of the newspaper and decides they need money for rent and to buy his momma a new pair of shows, breeds his dogs for some extra cash. More often than not, they find homes for these dogs. Whether they make money or not isn't really important. If they make it, they probably breed again and sell them, if not, they probably won't, but either way they usually find homes for all of the dogs because people wanting puppies are everywhere.

and they guy that spends thousands every year titling, working, training and proving his dogs has a few litters and yes, most of them also find homes.

almost every single dog you see in a shelter or rescue was somebody's pet once. There is no shortage of people wanting dogs, but there is definitely a shortage of those willing to live up to their responsibilities of owning a dog. Fixing that is about the only thing that is going to fix this problem without placing all the burden on those it will affect the least.

No. No no no no no. Responsible dog owners shouldn't be punished because of irresponsible dog owners.

I agree. I have recently decided not to spay my puppy. Well at least not until she has reached maturity. However I also feel that I am a responsable owner and can handle it.

I saw that article as well. It's very interesting. I am for mandatory SN for all mixes as well as breeds that are over represented in shelters such as pit bulls and chihuahuas.
