Behavior of a Neutered Dog
bad behavior often forces the owner to get rid of their dog. neutering affects the behavior of the puppies. the effect may not be as strong in case of older dogs, as their behavior has turned habitual. sometimes it takes more time, even weeks or months to seen the outcome of neutering among older dogs.
it is unlikely that a neutered puppy will mark territory, spray or bite. they make good companions and are more affectionate. such dogs do not generally show temperament or behavior problems.
there are no negative effects of neutering. many dogs undergo behavioral changes after neutering, according to studies conducted. most owners reported that their dogs have become calmer, while few found no change in behavior at all. so the benefits of neutering are significant.
neutered dogs do not run away and are less likely to get involved in dog fights. they are calmer and easier to train as it will not be distracted by its hormones.
normally, after neutering sexual behavior disappears. sexual desires may continue to persist in puppies that had experienced some sexual activity prior to getting neutered. sometimes sexually motivated behavior could be due to some other cause. it does not indicate incomplete removal of sexual organs. mounting among dogs is a indication of dominance. masturbation has been observed among dogs that have experienced sexual arousal before the surgery. among most pets, neutering successfully eliminates progression and development of sexual behavior.
neutering reduces fighting and other tendencies like dominance aggression. however, neutering does not alter territorial aggression. worries about your dog being unable to guard you house after neutering is a myth. intelligence and basic temperament remain unaltered after neutering. so a pet does not lose its vitality. it will continue to be playful, affectionate and will not resent you.
inappropriate defecation and urination continue as this is partially under the hormonal control. it reduces urine disorder and reduces the role hormonal factors. some pets gain weight due to change in metabolism.
sometime weight gain is also because of being less active and excessive eating. so adjust your pets' intake of food to prevent weight gain. neutering this will prevent diseases and increase the animals' longevity and has a positive impact on the pets behavior. hyperactivity and excessive barking is also reduced.
