    Yes, neutering is advised for male dogs if you don't have any intention in studding or breeding.

    Don't worry the surgery isn't that intrusive (for male dogs). Rocko will be sore for a few days but

    he will be just fine. This process can also be done for female dogs, the process is called spaying.

    You can expect a healthier and less aggressive dog after the surgery.

    He will be weak for a few days but he will be fine then!

    Many dog owners seems to have a healthier and happier dog after getting neutered.

    He will also be less aggressive and less territorial than before.

    Yes, I agree with jude, there are a lot of advantages in neutering your dog elem.

    Your Rocko will be sore a couple of days but it will be for his own good.

    Do some reading online and have a good chat with your Vet.

    I also had concerns about the neutering procedure. I decided to read up and ask questions, and here I am two weeks after the surgery and my Max is doing great. He actually acted normal the day after, and it was hard to try and keep him from jumping when I returned home from work. I actually caged him for two days after wards to make sure he wasn't over doing it while I was working. I had him neutered exactly two weeks ago, and he is just fine. My Vet was great too. A bonus was my Vet excepted the SNAP certificate which actually saved me a little money on the procedure

    Yes, I had a good experience with neutering as well Michele.

    I was a bit jumpy when my dog started walking around the house

    and jumping as well. I'm glad that things went well.

    thanks a lot everybody. I'll ask my vet to walk me through with the procedures so that I will understand the whole process
    much better. I'm thinking of actually going through the whole process now.

    My Yorkie is 6 months old and my vet says that it's very early to neuter him. That the best time is from 1 year 1-1/2 old. I did some reading in the net and I understood that the earlier the better. From your experience what do you think?

    Your Yorkie is very small in comparison to other dogs. If your Vet recommends between 1 and 1 1/2 years I would encourage you to go with your Vet. The reason being is that Yorkies being so small, the anesthesia can complicate matters. Truly It is not good for any dog or human to go under anesthesia, there can be complications at any time but it magnifies with Yorkies and smaller children.
