Yes,I had one of my dogs done a few years ago.His name was Trojan and he was a quality show dog and was also used for stud.The reason we had him done was to try to curb his dominance over fellow canines.He would also show complete dominance over a bitch that was used to mate with.It was on our vets advice to have him castrated in the hope it would calm him down a bit.To be honest after being done it made little or no difference to his dominance at all.He was just one hell of a macho dog.

Not had a Staff done but have had a few Border Collies done and there was no change in their behaviour or personality at all. All the dogs had come from rescue centres and we had them done to avoid adding more pups to the rescue centres. Wink

We may have to have one of our Staffy pups done soon as when he gets over excited his foreskin goes right back over his testicles and the vet says if it carries on too much longer it could cause him harm.

I'm a great believer in neutering. I'm very involved in rescue and see so many unwanted dogs, including accidental puppies. Our Millie was an accidental pup that ended up in rescue.

I personally don't think there is enough scientific evidence either way on the impact on behaviour. I see loads of dogs each week, some neutered some not, and really I couldn't say that you could tell the difference without looking. What I am sure of, though, is that dogs don't know, some people worry they will know they are different - I can't see that at all.

All of ours now and previously, males and females, have been neutered at various stages of their lives and their underlying characters are what they are, pretty well the same before and after. But no risk of unwanted pups.

Thankyou for all the replays. We don't want to mate him so my husband said to have him done to see if that calms him down a little as he is very giddy. But I'm not sure , especially if doesn't really change their behaviour.

It didn't change the behaviour of my daughter's dog, but he did lose muscle.

I doubt if it would calm him down. Very giddy... sounds like a normal staffie to me!

I got my jack Russell done when he was 15 months, I wanted to wait till growth plates closed. My reasons were because an old rescue I had had tumors which were luckily contained in the testicles. I wanted to stop that risk. His character etc didn't change but he got more freedom off lead etc as wasn't interested in girls anymore. Our new staff puppy will be getting done, hopefully once mature at around 2 years old. Unless I have hormone issues with 2 boys in the house, then I'll go for earlier neutering
