    Thanks @2BullyMama. I went ahead and got the donut. At first he was afraid of it until I finally caught him to install it around his neck. Funny thing was he wasn't moving at all. Like he was scared to move coz he might die or something lol





    He is slowly getting around the house and almost back to his old self. Appetite is definitely back to normal and I'm back to his training routine this afternoon. This morning, he was still too sleepy to do anything else.

    The incision is not bad and not that big. He is not allowed to jump or be too active. Have to keep him calm. So far he is doing really great for his 2nd day.

    Thank you @My Otis

    When I remove the donut though he tries to reach for that area. So I will have to leave it for the duration of his recuperation.

    @Bazza thank you

    Question though, would it stop Jake from humping now that he is neutered? My husband and my eldest son had told me before that Jake would hump their legs. On those few occasions I would never believe them coz I never experienced it. This was prior to surgery. Well last night while watching TV, he did it on me. Well, I was shocked coz this is the first time I've seen it hehe. So I scolded him and said stop. He then behaved and calmed down like he knew he did something he isn't supposed to. Will this continue even though he is altered?

    @JakeP Bazza used to hump one of my sons and pee on every tree he came across on a walk, after he was neutered he stopped both these. He used to sniff's alot while we walk but does not want to mark his territory anymore and he has never humped anybody again, found him to be less dominant over the boys as well. But I remember reading through here that some dogs do not change at all. bazza was 18mths old when neutered.

    My husband said that the reason could be that his hormones are still in his system and that I have to give it time. Which to me makes total since

    @JakeP It takes about a month before the hormones will leave his system. They also have to be taught not to hump-it can be done!! You did the right thing by reprimanding him.
