Whippet owners - when did you neuter?

Just that really. I know there’s so much conflicting advice; some relating to size of dog etc so just wondered when other whippy owners have taken the plunge!

My pup is approaching 8 months, not humid anything yet but does like to lick his bits a lot more than he used to.

I’ve got three whippet boys who were all done at about 18 months old. Ideally I wouldn’t have bothered but my older bitch, despite being spayed, has always been very attractive to entire males so it was necessary for a harmonious household.

Humping (or not humping) isn’t really related to a need for neutering as it’s often not sexual anyway. Dogs often do it when excited (which mine all do hmm) or stressed. Sometimes they just enjoy it, my youngest whippet boy occasionally likes a gentle hump of a sofa throw after his tea...
