Thread: Should I neuter my bully?

  1. #1

    Default Should I neuter my bully?

    I am feeling very conflicted over whether or not to neuter my bulldog, Bailey. He pees and poops in the house all of the time, and will not stop mounting my roommates dog...or the cat...or people. I had initially hoped that I would breed him one day, but after two years of motherhood have not made any steps towards actually doing that. I would really like the territory marking, mounting, and general bad behavior to stop...is neutering too drastic of a step? Any advice is VERY welcome!
    Thanks,
    Ashley

    well he doesnt need his bits if he aint going to use them,he will get urges to mate hence most of the behaviour,he will be very frustrated ,go ahead and get him done hopefully a lot of his issues will settle but some may now be habit which you will have to break through training,karen

    Neutering should help with all those problems, should help alot! I am a huge supporter of spaying and neutering, so I say NEUTER!

    If you are not going to show him in the ring... I vote NEUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    I say neuter too. He's old enough plus should help with the behaviour issues you're having.

    Neuter but I'm not sure how much that will help with housebreaking. It will help with marking but sounds like he still needs to be potty trained.

    I have to agree with @melanieian I think neutering will help but peeing and pooing around the house sounds more like a potty issue than strictly marking. But I am pro-neutering. I've had three males, all neutered, no problems with those kinds of behaviors.

    Brutus was doing the same thing! At just over a year we got him neutered and the peeing in the house/ marking stopped, the excessive humping stopped...he has only done it a couple times since and that was more a dominance thing. Before he would seek out my finace's work clothes (I guess because of the smell) and pee on them. He mananged to pee in 2 pairs of work shoes in 2 days lol. It's kinda amazing how quickly it stopped. He has 1 accident in the house since then, but it was storming out and he was terrified lol. I highly suggest you do it....it def helps!
