Choice of Spay/Neuter.
I wasn't really sure what to call this thread, but it was inspired by the
Spay/Neuter ALL the time? thread.
I had posted that both Izzy and Frodo were s/n at 6 months and that it had never really crossed my mind not to do it. Then I got to thinking that I didn't really have a choice if I wanted to compete in AKC agility/Rally-O/obedience/whatever because their breeder wouldn't sign the registration papers until she had proof of s/n. With our rescue dog, she wasn't spayed at the shelter, we were given 60 days to show proof that she had been spayed, it was the policy for everyone.
I had thought that this was normal for "pet quality" and shelter/rescue dogs.
I am wondering (for the people who don't have their dogs s/n or are thinking about not having it done) where you got your dog(s) and how they are not getting s/n. <-- I have reworded this like 5 times, and I can't get it to sound like I am not being mean/accusing, but I promise that it's not supposed to seem like that, I am just curious.
I am also wondering (for breeders) if the spay/neuter contract is a normal thing, or am I being assumptuous again?

P.S. This is a happy post <-- See, so no fighting
