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 run the risk? you can not guarantee your dog will not slip its lead or escape when you turn your back for 30 seconds.

I had to keep my bitch housed for 1 month when she was in heat she still had to go outside so she could have a crap, an intact dog that has made its bid for freedom could still scale my 6ft fencing if it was that desperate to get to her.

A simple operation gives you the certainty that some irate owner of a bitch that has only just gone into her first season and cannot be operated on is not knocking on your door accusing your dog of having a bit of fun when your back is turned.

musicmadness neutering actually reduces the risk of cancers which is why vets recommend it.

Maggie111 thanks for your message - I am in the process of trying to decide whether or not to neuter my 11 mo labrador, whose only issue is pulling my arm out of its socket when there's a bitch on heat being walked around the village. It certainly seems here to be the case that bitch owners think dogs should be neutered so there will be no unwanted litters... when we got our dog the breeder gave a really good piece of advice, which was to walk an unspayed bitch AWAY from its home, on a lead, if it were impractical to keep her in. Unfortunately the owners in our village continue to exercise unspayed bitches at popular times and on popular routes whilst they are on heat, showing their disdain when I dare to exercise my unneutered male in these same areas. I guess they think I should have him done so it's a catch 22...
My main concern is that, aside from 'pully' behaviour when there's a good smell, he is totally non agressive and submissive, whereas other neutered male labradors in the village are aggressive towards him - presumably as he is complete - therefore I wonder if he would become aggresssive towards entire males if I do have him done. Any advice through experience gratefully received!

If you are not going to get your dog neutered, I think it's v cruel not to let him mate, with a spade female of course. Poor boy. I say, either the balls go or you let him shag, even if only once.

What are some people on about on this thread?

Get him neutered. It's the only fair option.

As per my previous post, this is what I'm 'on about':

I am sure a vet could get to a sedated dog?

One of ours is aggressive at the vets. She's unspayed, unvaccinated and still has a massive gash down her side from when she had an accident and the vet couldn't get close enough to stitch her up.

Oh, wait, that's not true. I've just remembered, the vet suggested giving her sedatives prior to any appointments and muzzling her, so we did that.

You sound ridiculous OP. Get the poor boy done.
