Ruger is now 7 months old and I had a few questions. First, I eventually want to get him neutured, I did not know when the best age to do that is? Second, I am looking to buy a shock collar for him, and didn't know which brands or models everyone recomends?
I would wait until he is at least 18 months old for neutering. I have a lab that was spayed early. There are indications that early spay/neuter can also contribute to the incidence of osteosarcoma (bone cancer). And believe me, if there is anyway to lessen the likelihood of your dog getting this terrible disease, I would do it. I know I will never spay/neuter early, no matter what the vet tells. me.
On the e-collars. I have always had the Tritronics brand. Have had great service and they are very reliable. If you have never used one, please get some help on the correct way to use them.
Good luck with your puppy!
