It is in my both of my puppy contracts for Lars and Ocean that neither dog is to be neutered before the age of 2. I will be really curious to see if the rates of Osteo drops now that people are more educated to the fallout of neutering larger breed dogs before they reach maturity.
That's an interesting point. Any dog we get won't be altered young or at all.
