Default question, opposite sex puppies still entire.

hello,
I was wondering if I could ask a stupid question if I may.

Has anyone had two young puppies at the same time but different ages, female and male whom are both unneutered and unspayed? would there be any problems at all? as long as the female was spayed before her first heat? or would the male still be intrested? would they be safe to play together or is this a recipe of disaster?

Mylo and Willow are both puppies and not neutered. Willow is 4 months and Mylo is coming up to 8 months. He did hump her a few times in the beginning but I think it was a dominance thing as he was showing a lot of other dominance behaviours towards her. I clapped my hands and said no and he doesn't do it any more. Now he is used to her being around he won't even hump the cushion if she is near by. They sniff each other in that area but so do other same sex dogs so I don't think it's a problem. Mylo will be getting neutered in Jan so hopefully there will be no problems as he is starting to mature now. As long as they're neutered before they reach maturity there shouldn't be any problems that I'm aware of.

Personally I would have the male neutered and let the bitch have a season before she was spayed

May I ask why, is it due to growth? I thought to prevent the breast type cancer it was to be done before the first heat.

I don't want to neuter noah before at least one year of age, or 18 months whenever he is has fully matured, if ever! unless I have problems, behavior or health wise. He is quite a nervous dog also and I worry and don't want to risk an early neutering affecting his confidence levels.

I know with girls it isn't very straight forward, seems heath wise you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Though admitly I don't know as much about girls as I do boys as I've never thought about getting one until now, though it's all probably an non issue now as I'm finding some flaws in the breeder, so perhaps no hassel of having a little girl!

Oh really! I thought Mylo was neutered for some reason, ♥ your two appear so lovely together, thankyou for the reply.

I find they mature better if they have a season and if they are spayed after the first there is only a very slight increase in the risks of cancer etc this increases more with each season

I have heard that they are better off nuetered by 6 months of age. Honestly --mine was so young and he was asleeep that he has no clue that it was done. If it were me, I'd have the male nuetered early. There are lots of issues that can be avoided if it is done early. For his health it is better, behavior wise it is easier to train him and he will not have that crazed urge if their if a bitch in heat in the neighborhood. Some dogs go wandering if they aren't nuetered, they also "mark" things....

I was under the impression their testicles should be all the way dropped before getting them neutered, there for , some drop earlier then others. Ike has only had one drop so far, so the Vet doesn't even want to talk about it right now, also he is only 4 months old. I had my Jack Russell neutered at 6 months old and he still marked things.
