In the papers that we got with Cooper today our breeder recommends that we don't go past 6 mos.

Six months is a good time frame. That is also the age I reccomend for buyers of my puppies. It really depends on the dog though. You dont want bad behavors to begin then neuter. You want to stop them before they start. I can be really hard to correct regardless of the neuter. If he is exibiting negative behavior now then I would nip it in the bud right away. Or should I say nip the bud.

so 5 months is a reasonable age? not that it applies to me, as Noa is a little girl...but there's a little boy in her kindergarten class who is a bit of a humper and his owner was wondering if it was time to get him snipped...
