Best time to neuter?

My puppy bitch came into season today at the age of almost 9 months.
I do not intend to breed from her and will be getting her spayed.
As basenjis usually have only one season a year, is there any particular time I should get this done or does the same rule apply as for 'normal' dogs?

I would do it about a month after she goes out of season… while they typically only come in season once a year... they don't always read the same books that we humans do....

I know, her mother has decided to become a twice-a-year girl at the age of 4 1/2! :rolleyes:

Aw, little Dora's growing up!
