Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am so sorry no one has assisted you and your Pittie yet todayTo answer your question, neutering (spay is with a female) will help with dominant behavior and I have neutered dogs at 12 years for this behavior. It can help but is not a definitive answer and can take a few weeks after the surgery to see any changes in behavior since the testosterone is systemic for a period after neutering.CLICK HERE for an article on behavioral changes noted with neutering a male dog.
