Default "Neuticles"

Ok, so I'm sure these have been discussed here before, but not since I've been here! I was just having a "discussion" (argument) with someone on FB about responsible breeders and I mentioned that if someone wants to compete in Conformation their dog needs to be intact. The person responded by saying, "Um... No they don't. They make neuticles!"

So I guess my question is what do you feel about that argument?

I, personally, think it is unethical and essentially "cheating" or "false advertisement." Also, I'm sure it's against the rules, right? I can't imagine it would be allowed.

I think they're okay . . . If this is the other part of the proposed breeding program

It is *very* against the rules. I was talking to a judge once about her "dog show horror stories" and she told me about a time she was going over a dog and its balls fell off in her hand. Boy was she embarassed..

Why anyone would want to compete in the ring with a "neuticle" dog is beyond me, they make altered classes in UKC anyways...

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

Isn't one of the bigger points of showing to prove your dog is a worthy example of the breed to be bred?
..so what would be the point if your dog is neutered?

not to mention, it is very against the rules.

Yeah, I think they're ridiculous, but I also think altered dogs should be allowed to show. I can see the point of if a dog is good enough to be a champion, it's good for the breed to have puppies, but if that was valid dogs should require health testing in order to show.

are dogs not required to be health tested in order to show?

Definitely not, there have been plenty of BIS winners who were dysplastic.

well that's insane!
I thought the whole point of shows was showing off the best example of the breed.. wouldn't the best of the breed not be dysplastic?!

People show dogs with health issues all the time. If they aren't visible in the show ring, they don't matter. I personally think it's ridiculous
