When to nuter dog

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any ideas when the best time would be to have my lab fixed? He is four months and is going to hunting dog school for two months then I plan on having it done at about 6.5 months.

Thoughts?

Talk to your vet, normally they do it at less than a year of age and sometimes under 6 months of age. Time it with your training so you're not sending a recently fixed dog out for training.

Curious, what kind of training are you getting on such a young dog?

Some obedience and the "intro to hunting class"

The vet said 6 months is the best time in their opinion.

Go out and get the Game Dog or Water Dog book by Wolters and read thru the first part about obidience training. Its not that hard, if you commit to two 10 minute sessions per day you can do it yourself. Pups at that age are fun, I personally wouldn't miss that time by sending them off for two months on something that you could do yourself. Save your money and send them off for the advanced training early next year.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
