Advice needed on whether or not we should get our Viszla Dog neutered
Hoping for some advice on our gorgeous Viszla dog who is now just over 3 and a half years old.
We are really unsure whether or not we should get him neutered, he is super well behaved at home and generally very good when out and about he gets a whole lot of exercise and attention and is really great with people, kids, bitches and small dogs but he does tend to be a target by other male dogs which often leads to scraps, he never submits to any other dog which means coming across big aggressive or equally as boisterous/dominant dogs when out and about is always a concern. He also has never had any tendencies to hump with other dogs until the last couple of weeks which has caused us to now give it some serious consideration the only reasons being... to stop him from getting into fights and to stop him from getting a bit frisky around other dogs as well as reducing the risk of prostate cancer (Neither of these things happen that often as we tend to know what dogs he is likely to scrap with and get him on the lead before we pass but occassionally you can’t quite get there in time)
I really wanted to avoid getting him neutered if possible i know most people & vets recommend it and believe it’s the best thing to do but the idea of it just makes me feel awful for him, if the above reasons will be stopped because of it then I think it’s worth us considering.
Any advice or opinions from personal experience would be very much appreciated.
