Whine whine whine all fucking day even when he's just got back from a walk. Arghhhhhh
I feel the feminist in me come out and start saying things to him like "what makes you think she'd even want you anyway"
Haha I know it's crazy but he's pushing my buttons. WIBU to cut his balls of myself? A pair of scissors and some ice ought to do just fine right?

Why isn't he neutered?

saintmerryweather Thu 28-Mar-13 07:00:01

Nope not being unreasonable! My dog is intact and decides that the dog for him is a little terrier at my agility class. a boy terrier. he runs over and starts licking his willy and i have to go and grab him. at which point he runs away. Bloody dogs! If hes not doing that hes marking everywhere. ill never have an uncastrated dog again!

If you're not planning to breed fron him get him neutered.

Get them off! The largest proportion of dog bites are by intact males (will find link in a mo) and the risk is elevated by having a bitch in season nearby. Other dogs are also more likely to respond aggressively to an intact male's testosterone.

It only takes a moment of inattention on either your part or the bitch's owners to result in an escape and an unplanned litter of puppies.

Fuzzy he's never off the lead so unless the bitch in question comes up and plonks herself underneath him I doubt it will happen.
I took him to be neutered about 3 years ago and my usually very calm, very laid back dog knew what was about to happen, backed himself into a corner and wouldn't let them near him. I have never seen him like it ever. I figured if he wants to keep them that badly then fine.

YABU to have an unneutered dog.

He doesn't get to decide whether he keeps them. Do you let him dictate when he goes for walks aswel OP?

There are too many dogs in shelters to even risk having an unneutered dog. Even if you're not planning on breeding, he obviously is and is getting distressed by being denied.

Cut them off!

Well if you are keeping an intact dog then YABU to complain about his whinning. Of course he will whine.

Callisto Thu 28-Mar-13 07:46:25

FGS get him neutered. YABU to have an intact dog and YABU to winge about him wanting to shag when you won't have him castrated. As for his reaction at the vets - I've never heard a worse reason for not neutering.

My vet said that the benefits of neutering/not neutering a male dog were 50/50. With a female it's a no-brainer.

Anyway, YABU to complain about your dog whining and joke about neutering him yourself. If it is bothering you, just take him to a vet and get him done.

BabyMakesTheBellyGoRound Thu 28-Mar-13 07:51:14

Sounds very pfd. hmm

YABVU not to neuter the dog. Perhaps if he was neutered you could let him off the lead and he'd expend more energy and be less likely to whine.

Dogs don't really know what is best for them, just like young children so we make decisions for them. It's good to have a compliant dog/young child, but if they refuse you are supposed to be the responsible one.

fuzzypicklehead Thu 28-Mar-13 07:54:16

I don't doubt that you keep him on the lead, at all. But the bitch's owners may be less responsible, and unneutered (male and female) dogs have some pretty amazing escape abilities during the season.

Example: my neighbors have an unspayed GSD. when she came into season, she broke down a 6ft fence and a wiggled through a conifer hedgerow to get to our foster dog.

also, bite link here

He may well be scared at the vets, but that will hold true with any other necessary medical treatment. He still needs to have it done.

DreamingOfTheMaldives Thu 28-Mar-13 07:56:00

Of course he is desperate to get to a bitch who is in season, it's his natural instincts!!! Have the poor dog neutered, it must be driving HIM mad.

Your post has really annoyed me - if your dog's whining is doing your head in, how do you think he is feeling.

saintmerryweather Thu 28-Mar-13 07:56:44

Oooh ok our dog is not neutered because he is shown and they have to have their balls for that. thats a pretty poor reason not to get him done

Callisto Thu 28-Mar-13 07:59:48

Neutered dogs can't be shown? shock Why on earth not?

YOu didn't neuter him because you humanised his reaction to an unfamiliar situation and, doubtless, your tension. That's pathetic OP. Do both of you a favour and book him in at the vet.

echt Thu 28-Mar-13 08:02:05

OP, if you know enough to know you can only show an unaltered dog, then YABU to even post this thread.

Time waster.

BramshawHill Thu 28-Mar-13 08:03:03

You are being unreasonable. You're not doing your dog any favours by keeping him intact, all those hormones coursing around his body that he can't do anything about must be awful.

And he didn't know the vet was going to castrate him, dogs aren't that smart. Book another appointment and this time stick to it if you want to be a good owner.

What a stupid excuse. He had no idea that he was getting his balls chopped. Did he sit there covering them up with his front paws and a pleading look on his face?
His reacted because of the situation he was in not because of what was to be done to him.
Get him done.

Branleuse Thu 28-Mar-13 08:06:39

why would you keep him with testosterone flooding his system but with no way of doing anything about it?? its cruel to the dog and a liability for everyone else

YesIamYourSisterInLaw Thu 28-Mar-13 08:18:10

No beer actually the vet did a you have to come pick him up I can't neuter him face, I wasn't there they rang me at work to tell me they couldn't get to him.
Can I just make it clear I didn't "chicken" out of it I wasn't there!

booboo he doesn't whine at any other time just when a bitch is in season. He goes for hour long walks 3 times a day and i jog with him so please don't presume to tell me he doesn't get enough exercise when you can't possibly know having never seen yourself.

echt learn to read love, I didn't say the comment about showing him

YesIamYourSisterInLaw Thu 28-Mar-13 08:20:34

And he wasn't scared he was aggressive. He's never ever aggressive to the vets or anyone in any other circumstances but in this case he had backed himself into a corner and was snarling.
He may not have known but he sure as hell knew something wasn't normal because he never kicks up a fuss usually with jabs or anything
