Casterating working dogs

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Everyone,

    Im hoping you can give me your veiws on the following.

    I have a seven and a half year old black lab that picks up on a local pheasant shoot and sits patiently in a pigeon hide during close season.Hes a very soft dog never shown any aggression towards other dogs,he picks up enthusiastically and works his socks off.Recently after a trip to the vets they found one of his balls is bigger than the other and they would like to do an ultrasound to see if theres a growth in one.If there is they would take a sample and after testing decide whether to castrate him.I have no desire to breed from him so it may be a good idea just to have him castrated without the ultrasound and tests.I do worry if having his balls taken away will affect his working desire or undo his chilled out temperament

    What are your thoughts people Thanks in advance.
