Male Dogs Being FixedIt's typically believed they become more docile and possibly less energetic. AnswerI asked my vet this question not too long ago regarding my male German Shepherd, Luger. He can be extremely aggressive around other dogs and people that he does not know. However, I wanted a guard dog and continue to work with him on what's acceptable, what is considered a threat, etc. I also have a female German Shepherd, however, she is quite docile - although she has her moments. Anyway, back to your question. I asked my vet if Luger would get less aggressive after being fixed. Her reply was that it depends on a number of factors, including the breed, the handler, the home environment, etc. Some dogs do become more docile. The best advice is to discuss the specifics with your vet.


I have had multiple dogs in my lifetime. I have NEVER seen anything but good come from having a dog fixed. Specifically, I'm thinking of my last three dogs, an Old English sheepdog who was unaltered at 5 years of age when I got him. I immediately had him fixed. He was the best guard dog I ever had! Also, my labrador, who I had fixed at 4 months of age. He is a fantastic guard dog! I have no doubt that he would kill anyone who tried to harm me. I also have a Britney Spaniel who was a wussy, lovey dog when I got him, had him fixed, he's still a wussy, lovey dovey dog. It has more to do with the personality of the dog than anything else.
