Would be grateful for everyone's opinion for or against castration. Dylan is 6 months now and I have to make the decision. My thoughts so far:- absolutely hate the idea of putting him through surgery and having the recovery/pain etc. I believe there are preventative health benefits but would take my chances with that. The main reason I would get him done is to avoid frustration and constant mounting other dogs and objects and a very minor consideration is that most dog walkers/minders won't take non-neutered males (although the one I use occasionally at the moment doesn't care). Also, I've been told that he would be much less likely to be attacked by other dogs, and as he has already suffered a major attack, this is important to me. Please share your opinions and experiences with me. Thanks.
