I had my ten year old snipped at five months, I don't regret it :) Dogs don't miss their balls.

Why would you miss your DOG'S balls if you had him neutered??

Mine was neutered at 11 weeks and I don't see any reason to regret it.

I don't mean this to come off wrong...

But why is it guys always feel guilty about getting their male dogs neutered?

My roommate is the same way, he will not neuter his dog because he doesn't want to chop off his "manhood"

And he wonders why Nemesis doesn't listen, sniffs and marks everything he can outside, and when he's off leash he doesn't listen....

I have tried all I can to reason with my roommate with no hope in sight.

Look at it this way, if you have him neutered, it will be less likely that he will develop cancer.

Now that I am an adult. Every male dog that I have ever owned has been neutered. My females have always been spayed. I plan on getting a second pit next year, a male, and he will be neutered, and I won't think twice about it

if you are that worried your dog will miss his balls, when he is neutered have them brought to a taxidermist and have them preserved and hang them on your rear view mirror.....

Dogs aren't people, they don't miss what they don't have. Your boy will be fine.
The way I put it, if you have your own balls, your dog does NOT need his. And the reverse might be true ;)
You'll be preventing many many problems by neutering, as well.

ROFL!!!! roflmao

My hubby was the same way when I took our male cat to get neutered! He felt so bad cause they were taking away his "manliness". Heehee.

Ever since he got spayed my husband calls him a pansy cat. Sheesh! I don't think the cat even know what happened to him. lol!

I'm going to be getting my male puppy neutered soon as well and I was wondering...does early neutering prevent him from having big balls in the future? I sure hope so. :oops:

If you really think your dog will miss his balls, you can have neuticles inserted during the operation. No one will know he's neutered ;)

That's exactly what I was just going to say..

And I am usually entertained at how men immediately tense up and protect the nether regions, upon such discussions.

Honestly, dogs won't know they are gone, it's better for health reasons, for your own sanity, and to prevent more litters (pure, mixed, intential or accidental), as this world has too many as it stands!

Spay and Neuter..it's way cuter!...plus it reduces the risk of prostate cancer and such and they tend to be a little calmer and less likely to run off.

Neuter that sonofabitch.

They are way more chill (if that's what you want).

Don't be adding to our doggy overpopulation.

dtp916 is right.
They tend to live longer too.
