I have a 6 month old springer male and wont leave my my older dog alone
He is trying to mate the older dog. Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
How old can I get him neutered? Will it effect his behaviour or cause any health problems?
This sounds like a dominance issue and teh younger dog is trying to dominate the younger dog. I think Neutering is the right thing. Speak with you vet, they usually considered it around a year but they may do it earlier.
Neutering does not affect their health but their coats sometimes become a bit wooly, but that is nothing that grooming cannot manage
