    Default Ye Olde Neuter Discussion - with a twist?

    So i have decided to wait a minimum of 2 years to neuter. Possibly won't ever do it.

    The only lingering concern I have is the theory that testicular cancer increases. Which apparently the jury is still out on (i've read all the threads on here).

    I was curious though. In human males, its a fairly well known fact that periodic "release" is not only enjoyable, its important for proper function of prostate and testicles.

    I've read that it plays a role in "keeping things moving" down there, and wards off risks like prostate or testicular cancer.

    When I hear people say "If you aren't going to stud him out, you should neuter him" ... my mind goes to this topic instead. The fact that a dog who is "bred" actually gets to "release" periodically.

    Is there any school of thought - or even common practice, where male dogs can be "released" every so often in a controlled manner by a practitioner, so as to encourage a healthy reproductive system?

    I can imagine that a male human who never ejaculates may have some major issues down there after some time.

    Our dog trainer could do it... he is/or used to be a breeder so I guess that's how he knew how to. It didn't seem that complicated though I think if you ask around you can find a vet or breeder that you can take him to once or twice a year I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself in your home, think that might cause trouble and... ya, it makes a mess
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    My guess would be to ask a breeder or a vet

    If they aren't neutered I would have the vet manually stimulate him once a year.

    Good point, that does make some sense. The only problem I could see is they do need stimulation, (as in a female in heat). It could pose difficult without the stimulation. I don't think magazines would work.

    That brings up a good point, that I haven't really thought about. Our vet also recommends waiting until they are at least 18 months of age until neutering them. If you do it at 2 years of age, I really don't think you have to worry about cancer at that age. You might talk to your vet about the stimulation part and see what he thinks agout it. We have done it when collecting for a breeding, but have used a female in heat to help the situation.

    Yeah I was asking because Im *not* comfortable doing it myself.
    Baxter already looks at me strange when I scratch his butt for him.

    Can male dogs have sex with spayed females and no risk of pregnancy? lol .
    I was thinking maybe I could find him a girlfriend and let them go at it as often as they like.

    Definitely glad to hear that its considered realistic to do the "release" thing yearly.
    My only other question is - why is once a year sufficient? Seems really insufficient.
    If anything, if I found a vet who was familiar with doing it, I would have it done once every 3 months minimum.

    Just speaking as a guy ... you know lol ...

    I once went to Bible College and didn't "sin" for nearly 3 months. Self sin. Lets just say everything shut down and got clogged up.
    Took some time to get things going again.
    Too much information? Just trying to make my case here lol ...

    don't ever let them go at it, they may overheat!

    Baxter runs full steam for nearly an hour with minor breaks in between at the park ... would this be more intense than that?

    He would probably not try to mount a spayed female. It's not the female that necessarily stimulates them, it's the heat that does.

    However, perhaps a vet would be able to exercise him without the female. Once he gets used to doing it he will probably do okay.
