Hey guys, long time lurker posting for some advice.

Dave is a just over 6 month old pug and has firmly hit the teenage stage!

Over the past few mornings when we've come downstairs (he's crated overnight) there has been a small-medium size patch of wetness on his crate pillow....it doesn't smell like urine and it doesn't smell (?) like water....could he have ejaculated overnight?

It has been many many year since I had a pup and even then it was female so unsure of the workings of a male.

He hasn't been humping but has been getting erect quite a bit ( to the point where it's embarrassing!), just wondered if anyone could shed some light?

Greatly appreciate any response.

no advice to offer other than to say my DP is called Dave! thankfully he is past the wet dream stage.

It is about time little Dave had his bits removed id say wink

Yes if on a pillow quite likely to be ejaculate

Well further to the above post when I went to put him in the car he rolled over so I had a good view of his manly parts (thanks Dave!) and there was still a bit of semen on the tip and leaking out (sorry for the tmi) so yes a call to the vets will be in order.

Pic of my chappy should be here

You might want to hold off on neutering him for a bit, recent research points towards leaving them intact until physically and emotionally mature. For a pug that would be around 12 months.

nooooooooooo!! the sooner the betterer with the nuts off - seriously. I have had several dogs and by fair the "easiest" and healthiest is the one that was castrated at six months. Old rottie i didn't castrate him until he get prostate problems - castrating him ruined his coat, still retained his lovely temprement though. Rescue rottie not castrated til about 18m at rescue, came with serious aggression issues. Non castrated JRT is an absolute bastard. Castrated JRT a dream.

I used to be very anti-castrate but now im like get the fuckers gone. smile

It affects their growth as the growth plates haven't fully closed. I have only just had my 4 yo Lab done.

I've never heard of this and I work in a vets. I am not doubting you though - will have to look into it. There are many arguments fore and against castration and at what age etc. My older boss was always a bit anti, wheras the younger partners can't wait to get snipping.

Well I stopped in at my vets on the way back from town and have taken their advice and he's booked in for castration. I don't really want this thread to turn into a argument about whether it's better to wait or not and so on, I will take the advice of my vet who knows Dave very well.

They did say it sounded like ejaculation and coupled with other maturing behaviours are happy to proceed.

Thanks for the advice.

grin Sorry Dave xx

No arguing here - as i said, there are lots of different views on castration, even within our practice they differ.

My honest opinion is that you'll have a calmer dog if you do it now. That is just from my experience outlined above. But with a case study of n=4 it isn't a scientific opinion wink

No worries LEM i appreciate that it is contentious subject.

He's conked out in front of the fire at the moment, poor little guy won't know what's hit him.

och - he'll be fine! he will just think "hmmm there's something missing down there. I don't know what it was but it felt good when i cleaned it"
