    In recovery, pick him up at 3.

    Oso is a beautiful Border! Love that red merle.

    My BC pup is almost 6 months, out of curiosity when did you get his snipped? Our other BC was around 8 months when we separated him from his manhood.


    Also, love the name. Reminds me of this:

    I still call it The Jake.

    We were aiming for 1 year to do the snip but he is closer to 13 months since his birthday is Xmas week. We decided to give him time to shape into a man dog. The vet neither endorsed nor did they object to waiting a bit longer as is the current trend.

    He is pretty mellow today, recovering nicely on my day off. Good to be with him. He is wearing a coat instead of a cone.

    He is named after Mt. Oso, a remote 13er in the San Jauns, on the flanks of which we spread my sisters ashes. He's a good little bear though too!

    Thanks, I'll be curious to hear how his behavior difference is since I've not waited that long to do the snip. I've had good results with going the 6-month mark but it appears there has been more research into health benefits for waiting longer.

    Behavior is our main concern having young kids around so we prefer mellow to manly, but lucky our boys have been super sweet.

    After reading about getting dogs altered fucking up their hormones, I have decided in the future it will be like we do for humans (vasectomy or tubes tied) to maintain the hormones they need later in life. My Malamute has to take estrogen now so as to not have accidents when relaxed.

    Same with him, super sweet. Also he never got annoyingly horny or anything like our Aussie did. He did get a bit aggro around other male dogs but just making noise trying to prove he is boss.

    We set the goal for a year and would have cut it short if he turned into a man prick. Not a big deal either way and the science is pretty opaque.

    Current status...not wearing his anti lick coat while I'm watching him...since he knows the rules.

    We're getting a new male puppy next month and have started to discuss the snip. My wife is kicking around the idea of keeping him whole to potentially breed him someday, but I'm afraid that would make him aggressive/dominant with our current male 6yo dog. I've also heard that they tend to roam more if not neutered?

    I do wish we had been able to wait longer to have our current dog neutered. He was a rescue so it was done early and I think waiting would've been better.

    Thanks for the beta man, I appreciate the insight. Oso is a gorgeous boy. Enjoy.

    I think a lot depends on the breed and the dog’s temperament.

    We’re good friends with our breeder and we want to help her as much as possible. She wants us to keep all the males intact.

    She gives me the dogs that are too big to show, stupid AKC standards, but they’re really good trail dogs. My wife and son have shown him in field trials and he excelled.

    I’ve never had a problem with any of my boys being aggressive. But it is annoying that they stop to pee on just about anything.

    All Special Forces dogs are neutered, for that very reason . If it was up to me, I’d neuter them at six months.

    Nope, to young, but YRMV. I am not doing that anymore, but a vasectomy.

    That dude is ripped. Vishio -spelling- ? I've seen them be quite agressive on the beach - when they aren't running like 5 thousand miles an hour.

    ^^^ Yeah, dude is ripped. Very handsome dog... and for that matter, there's just so many nice looking animals on these pages. Fit, happy dogs.

    My daughter and I snuck in a few laps after school today and then pulled our buddy Spider out of the truck for a run down to town.

    Right? Dude looks like he could pull a sled team all on his own with those.

    Also, Angle Parking, where's this magical (looks lift served) place you can ski with your pup?

    The bigger issue in my experience is neutered dogs harassing intact dogs. I tired to get sage to 1.5-2 years but he decided he liked marking inside at a year and got the snip. Ended that behavior.

    Speaking of, anyone have experience with ovary sparing spays? Have an intact female project arriving next week. If she hunts she'll stay intact, otherwise wondering if this is a better alternative?

    Smithers B.C. Our ski hill is connected to town via the Rotary Trail To Town. 4.2km and it gets periodically groomed throughout the season. Great for kids, parents (who don;t have to go pick up there kids at hill, uphill skiing, night skiing, drunken teenagers on GT Snow Racers, etc. So below the lift serviced area.

    As I said up thread, don't spay your female dogs. Find a vet that will leave the ovaries and just remove the rest. They need their hormones as they age.

    We generally stay out of avy terrain, and the forecast has been green here for weeks. He does carry a Pieps TX600 if for some reason shit hit the fan.
