Healthy dogs

Living With An Intact Dog

And in the mountain of empirical data, there is also information on the health benefits of keeping a dog intact up until eighteen months, or for the life of your dog –

  • vibrant muscle development
  • healthy joints, tendons, ligaments
  • stable emotional health
  • full development of all sphincters
  • hormonal support of all body functions
  • the whole dog

But is this really for everyone?

  • Training, yes you must. A trusting relationship, time spent together, an understanding of what life is throwing their way in the way of hormones in the environment is imperative
  • Male dogs mark, some inside, most just outside. With a young developing dog they should never be left in a room alone, and should be taken outside often and praised for going outside
  • NO dog doors
  • Some young male dogs become melancholy when they can smell hormones but can’t access them, they sometimes go off food for a bit, drop a little weight, and become mopey, this does pass with age
  • Some young male dogs can become hyper-sexual, pushy, and aggressive with other dogs because their hormones have basically high-jacked their system, not common, but it can happen

So, know who you have, understand how life happens, and look at your dog as an individual and what would be best for them. You are their voice in the human world, use it wisely and with care.
