Oscar was neutered at 8 months (when we got him) by the rescue we got him from . He was a holy terror then and (at 10) remains a force to be reckoned with!

Personally, I don't think getting him snipped made any difference. Like others have said, it's down to training...

Oscar can still be a pain-in-the-ar*se. Nowadays he'll happily trot past other dogs when he's out and about just as long as they don't take too much interest in him. Sniffing may or may-not be welcomed.

It took years to get to this point. He's the product of a puppy-farm, sold as soon as he could lap porridge, long before his poor mother had a chance to teach him any social skills - and all these years later it still shows to those who know what to look for.

I'm not saying don't do it, but neutering as a means of behaviour adjustment is vastly over-rated (especially by vets who either want you to think they've got all the answers or hope you'll pay them to do it!) and you'll get much better results through training.

The best of luck to both of you.
