Hello all, I have a 16 week old German Shepherd male "Codey" I have recently went to the vet to get his shots and she mention to be about getting him nutered (snipped) Now I don't plan to breed at all. I just want to know what are the benefits of doing this? other than the vet making money. He is a really calm puppy who obeys, and is well trained, as much as a puppy can be. He responds and obeys to , sit, stay, come, up, down, he is almost leash trained-does not pull most of the time, totally potty trained, etc..so I just dont know if its really necessary to get him nutured? The want to do it when he is 5 months old, pretty much after Holidays. Please share your input with me! Greatly appreciated! Thank you! Ohh what I meant to say is that hes not out of control, and they say its good to do it to calm them down.
