    The time has come....I am considering giving my 4 year old black lab the snip snip. He has started to "pleasure" himself more and more often, leading to a gross clean up. He has a very fit/built body type and a perfect amount of drive for my hunting style which is why I have been conflicted. I have heard pros and cons from each side but I wanted some first hand experience. Will he lose hunting drive and become a lazy a**?

    Didn’t take anything away from the Yellow Demon when it comes to drive or aggression. I cut him just for that reason. Even castrated he still had more balls than any dog I’d ever met.

    I waited to long on my 9 year old. He started peeing blood, took him to the vet and he explained older dogs get enlarged prostate and therefore get infected. Had him fixed and so far all is good without removing the prostate. Moral to the story is, if you're not going to breed him get it over with. He hunted great, same hard drive and energy. Hurt me more than him.

    Getting them done at 4 months has never hurt as far as getting it done.

    Only issue, as I understand it, is doing it too soon as the resulting drop in testosterone can effect ligament development. I had my dog snipped at 30 months and saw no difference in drive. He’s still over the top once we step into the field. Google it or ask your vet-unless your using the Walmart home vasectomy kit.
