These 2 post tell you from 2 professional breeders…you might want to rethink your keeping this boy intact.
Not your your comfort, but more for his.
I appreciate the additional advice, although there is plenty of research out there that negates the possible behavioral benefits of having a dog neutered.
Having the dog put under alone is a slight risk. It's not exactly common for a dog to pass away after having local anesthesia, but it happens. There are health risks having a dog neutered as well as leaving them intact.
I'm not going to get into a lengthy debate over this, but I'm not unfamiliar with this topic. I created the thread to pinpoint the issue with recent anxiety. If the DAP is effective then I won't have any issues. He's a perfect dog outside of that one isolated problem. I would consider neutering if it was a 100% certainty that it would rid him of his increased anxiety. Although no one can be certain.
Now if he were mounting everyone in sight and creating serious frequent problems, I'd have him neutered immediately.
