All three of my dogs are spayed and all of my future pets will be spayed and neutered also. I have no need for more puppies, the world has no need for more puppies.

The reasons people have for not fixing their pets are often so ridiculous - "I don't want him to lose his manliness," "It'll make her fat," "It will wreck her coat," "I don't want his personality to change."
No touchy.

I had the worst time convincing a friend of mine to neuter his dog, because his own masculinity was so tied up in his dog's...silly, silly man.

I always get my pets spayed or neutered. I don't like the look of "intact" male dogs, I really don't like looking at their "stuff". Also If when it was "my time of the month" and I had to walk around with a visable diaper wrapped around me wherever I went I would die of humiliation. I know I am no where near experienced enough to breed dogs (probably never will be either) so it's best to get them fixed and then not have to worry about "accidents". Puppies are cute, and cuddly, but I think a WHOLE litter would be just TOO much work for someone like me.
Secret to a successful life is not in playing a good hand, but in playing a poorly delt hand well.

ROFLMAO! Glad it made you so happy, Richie. You started a good thread about something very important.

Dogs who aren't neutred at a young age have more behaviorial problems. They also only think about mounting everything in site including your visitors legs.. which is annoying. And the cancer thing I agree with.

Yes, I was thinking the same. lol..

If a dog (or its owner! I've seen excellent dogs that are being bred by MORONS!) doesn't have the right stuff for breeding it should be neutered, IMO. Neutering is healthier for the dog. If it isn't going to be used for breeding or shown in conformation, why leave it intact at all? I consider neutering a preventative surgery for testicular cancer.

I see that most if not all of the people here are very passionate about their fids. I know I am brand new to the board and didn't really represent myself as I should have the first few posts, but I wish this whole breeding tread would disappear. It seems that the majority here may have purebreds (I do too, from a shelter). But the whole breeding thing gets my hackles up and I am seeing it's getting others hackles up as well. I understand freedom of speech, and respect that, but from what I can see here, most "animal people" don't respect the concept and are not in favor of it.

I could see having a pure-bred section, (and discussing training, behavior and temperments of certain breeds) but "the breeding ground" sounds like a doggy orgy for profit. Just my 2 cents....

what about improving the breed look and temperament? Not all breeders breed for the money
