In some European countries and the United States sterilization of dogs deemed necessary procedure (one reservation: if the dog is not purchased for further breeding) because there are very strict veterinary legislation in these countries.
In our country only owner can decide whether do it or don’t. You have to consciously decide whether to expose Jack to the operation.
Weigh all the "pros" and "cons". For example, it is assumed that the sterilized females have less risk of breast cancer, but only if they were sterilized before the first heat. There sterilized females have no heat, it is certainly convenient to you, as the owner. If you go with your dog to hunt, you can’t do a 3-week break in the heat, and if you do not hunt, you do not need to change your lifestyle for these 3 weeks.
Also it generally accepted that male castration will help reduce his aggression, make him more obedient and docile. Castrated male dog will not run away from the host, sensing the bitch in heat he will not mark (spray) territory.
However, keep in mind that these preconditions do not always work. Aggression can still be; the interest in the opposite sex will not disappear immediately.
Despite the obvious advantages of sterilization, think about it. Despite of all advantages sterilization carried out under general anesthesia it causes the harm to the body of a dog. After sterilization, increases the likelihood of obesity, so you need to carefully monitor the diet of your dog.
Also, if you suddenly decide to have puppies you can’t back return back anything. The operation is irreversible.
We reiterate: this decision should be aware, because you are fully responsible for the life and health of your dog.
Did you know that a dog tries to say something important when he licks it in your face? Recent research from scientists in the UK, Brazil, and Germany has shown that when a dog licks, he is really trying to communicate with us. According to Phys.org, this is how a dog reacts to certain facial expressions.
The theme of sterilization/castration is quite trite: you have to do it if no obvious indications? Of course, each owner makes his own decision and adheres to some of his beliefs. We will not try anybody to convince of anything (why do we need another topic of controversy?), the following information for those who have a dog, who is still undecided in your opinion or does not know what the choice is. (for experienced dog walkers information can also be very interesting.
