Valley Veterinary Care recommends neutering of non-breeding male dogs before the age of 2 and ½. In this procedure the testicles are surgically removed to sterilize a male dog. There are several health benefits associated with neutering your dog before the age of 2 and ½ years, including:
Reduces the risk of hormone-related diseases, such as peri-anal adenoma
Eliminates the risk of testicular cancer, the second most common cancer in intact male dogs
Removes sexual urges, decreasing roaming behaviors
Reduces certain types of aggression
