Best age to get males neutered?

Hello, everyone.

This is agreat site for information. It has been very helpfull.

Yesterday the question was posted as to when should bitches spayed?

However I got two 5 month old males at home. This is the my first time adopting male dogs.

I want them them to get fully grown prior to neutering them however I am afraid they will start marking the house and the furniture

Any time now would be fine. Especially with 2, I'd neuter them before the hormones start. Competitive marking is more than twice as bad as a single one marking.

Welcome!!

I agree. I've heard it's best by 6-7 months, not much later than that. Ricky had his neutering done at 6.5 mths. and our new boy, Sammy, was neutered at 7 months. Don't want any marking in this house that's for sure!

Good luck! Those are beautiful babies you have there!!

Thanks for the advice. I want to make sure I am doing the right thing. We want the boys to grow up big and strong. We chose this breed because of their seize and sturdiness. We want them to be big enough to play with.

our vet said - wait until they have all their new teeth just in case they have a retained tooth .. about 6 months
I think we went through all this on another thread - you might want to try and find it

Quincy was 5 or 6 months old when he was neutered.I'm glad we did it early on.I haven't had any marking or anything like that and actually both my dogs(hav and sheltie)never have lifted there legs.Both of my guys are still squatters....YIPEE!

Logan has just started lifting his leg, but at least it is only outside. He has NEVER marked and hopefully never will!!

Thanks for the encouraging words. Now I am looking for a good vet in town to perform the surgery. The Vet. I have been using does not perform surgery.

I guess we are going to schedule them both the same day. These boys are litter mates and they are inseparable.

Thanks again for the compliments and the advice.
