there is a lot of miss-information about neutering. We advise you to discuss this procedure with a member of staff. It is important to be fully and correctly informed as to the effects of neutering. FEMALES: We advise that if you have a female dog (bitch) and do not intend on breeding that you should get her neutered just before her first season. The first season usually occurs between 6months and 9-10months. Neutering will not make bitches snappy (all guide dogs are neutered at six months). Neutering your bitch will reduce the risk of breast cancer (a common cancer in older bitches) by up to 90% as well as eliminating the risk of womb infections, false pregnancies, heats and unwanted pregnancies. MALES: Male dogs should be neutered at 6 months old. This can help reduce wandering, aggression, mounting and marking.
