Question Vastectomy vs Castration

I'll be getting my puppy in mid August. I plan on having him altered, however I'm unsure how. This will be my very first dog, so I was wondering if everyone would give me an idea of the pros and cons you and your boys encountered and with what procedure, and if you chose one and had a less then happy outcome, do you wish you had chosen the other procedure?

I'll be honest I was not aware that vasectomies were an option for dogs. My only male dog had been neutered when we got him.

I guess a vasectomy could be done to a dog, though I have never known or heard of anyone that has had that procedure done to their dog. Part of the advantage of neutering as I understand, is it helps control a male dogs desire to wander, and helps calm them somewhat.

Did your vet give you this option? I never heard of a vasectomy for dogs, either. My male dogs did great with their neutering and it eliminated the possibility of testicular cancer.
