My daughter got an intact 18 month old male Corgi that has not been neutered. We don't plan to breed it. Should we have him neutered? Pros/cons?

I seem to recall reading somewhere in the past that neutering a male dog can really mess with their emotional health. I damn sure know it would mess MINE up! 😄

Since that breed isn't valued for their impressive musculature, it's no big deal neutering one. If it were a male Boxer, or Am Staff, or something along those lines, you can expect to reduce the hardness of their physique. This is minimized a bit by waiting till they are three, but even then, they will lose some muscle weight afterwards. With a Corgi, it's not an issue.

As for personality, it will calm them down a bit, and if they are constantly trying to hump your leg or your female dogs, this issue will be reduced dramatically, although it may not disappear completely.

No other down sides that I know of.

Definitely yes. It'll take care of many potential problems.

not remotely true. Ive neutered all of my male hunting dogs around 18 to 20 months not one lost an ounce of muscle weight . In fact as they aged a bit more with more workouts, training they gained some weight

After they have reached their growth potential, yes. But not before. They need their hormones to develop correctly.

At 18-24 months he should be good to go.

It probably would have saved me a lot of heartache and trouble over the years if I'd had it done when I was about 15 years old. 😏

I'd like my 1.5 year old standard poodle to crack one off in a hot bitch before we neuter him.

It's the least I can do.

It messes up their hormones.

It messes up their hormones.

what hormones does it affect? specifically after 18 months?

what about testicular cancer?

One of the reasons I bought a male Lab some years ago was because my Previous was a bit uncomfortable about staying alone while I was working nights. We kept him intact to preserve his “edge” as a protector, not that Labs are generally known for being great security dogs. He was never allowed to roam and and never had “issue”, nor gave us any trouble by being aggressive, ever. He’s long gone, as is the Previous.

Once while I was walking him at the local ballfield, a lady came over to pet him. She was pleasant enough, but then asked me in a very annoying tone, “And WHY hasn’t he been neutered?”, like it was any of her fugging business. I replied, “He and I discussed this and he said that if I let him keep his testicles, he’d let me keep mine”.
