    If you're going to breed him, it's best not to.

    We bred one of our male Great Pyrenees last winter.

    He's getting cut soon.

    Best to let the veterinarian do it, not me...

    Unless they're churning out money making pups, yes.

    Great new topic.
    Get neuticles and don't worry about it.

    Just like 99.9% of TGPers are not musicians, 99.9% of pet owners are not breeders. Spay or neuter. Always.

    No shame in speaking the truth.

    And the Joe Six Packs whose dogs' balls are an extension of their own are on a level of pathetic that most people thankfully cannot relate to.

    The vets both I know (both in their professional capacity and/or as friends or acquaintances) believe that neutering (and spaying) after a year or so is definitely beneficial to a dog's development and long term health as well as being useful in reducing/eliminating some potentially problematic behavior and/or personality issues (especially in certain breeds) re: unwonted dominance/aggression/tractability.

    None of my current dogs were born with balls to chop off.

    The one in my avatar (RIP) had his removed. It was absolutely the right thing to do.

    And someone wondered the other day why we don't have more women here.

    We got Waylon cut as soon as he was old enough. It was right before his first Christmas. I call him "Buggy Angel Nuts," and tell him his nuts will be waiting for him at the Pearly Gates one day.

    That is a look of pure and utter contempt.

    As stated in other posts I believe the correct term is neutering and yes it should be done.

    If you're going to do it, take the dog to a professional . . .
