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.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
