There are quite a few benefits to spaying (such as eliminating the risk of infection of the uterus and no need for sanitary pads) but it is better to spay before the dog goes into heat for the first time, in order to maintain first-rate health benefits.
It can be done anytime after 8 weeks but they can come into their first heat around 6 months but it really depends on the type of dog (breed).

Spaying can be less controversial than neutering - which is where some of these bone growth and joint problems are being linked based on many incomplete studies i.e. these studies haven't been carried long enough to be absolutely concrete - As long as you spay before the dog's first heat there shouldn't be a problem (which is around 6 months), even so, I would speak to a vet that you know well and trust and base your decision on the info they give you.

Early spay and neuter certainly effects the bone growth of a dog.
There have been multiple studies proving that. And also multiple studies disproving the theory that spaying before the first heat is the best thing to do.

Here is an excellent article on it-

AND there are far more studies proving the opposite of both those conclusions. There is still a lot of know and in time we hope we will get there.
