Removing the horomones is not nessecarily good for the dog.I do not understand why you would do a vasectomy instead of castration. If it is a case of wanting them to still look masculine, they do make neuticles. I know some who had them implanted on a male Giant Schnauzer.
Well, if you do have females in heat in your area, he will mate with them, and even if he cannot make them pregnant, there are issues with this.A few months of taking care of my dog so he's not near females in heat isn't so bad honestly.
Contrary to "popular knowledge" castration does not nessecarily stop any or all of that. It depends greatly on the individual dog.Well, if you do have females in heat in your area, he will mate with them, and even if he cannot make them pregnant, there are issues with this.
- he will cross roads to get there so will be in danger of being hit by cars.
- he will be totally nuts and obsessed with females and unable to listen to you at all when you call.
- he can contract and pass on sexually transmitted diseases such as Brucellosis
- the owners of the female dogs may not want your dog around humping their dogs
- the female dogs may not want your male humping them
- other male dogs will be competing for the females too, and there will be fights.
Removing the hormones removes the sex drive, so the dog is not actually missing anything, in terms of he is not feeling deprived.
I don't have the dog yet, he will be born in about a week, and I have to wait 2 or 3 months to get him.You have a Jindo. A very independent breed with intelligence and drive to match.
If your Jindo wishes to find the nearest bitch in heat, he will. Obviously, I cannot speak for your dog specifically, but for the breed standard, I can. I own a "relative" so to speak. Highly driven dogs.
What is the age of this dog? I might have more to say once I know the age. Testicular cancer is actually a very small percentage.
It also comes down to your level of willingness to ensure this dog cannot impregnate and to never underestimate the ability of a dog nuts on hormones to get that job done if it wants to badly enough.
Do you have any other dogs in the home?
Well, because I'm pretty sure that after some months he won't be able to impregnate anyone, considering the surgery is done correctly of course.If you don't intend on becoming a breeder, why not get him neutered and have 100% assurance you will not be contributing to the pet overpopulation?
