What are the benefits of neutering?
Spaying will stop the bleeding that occurs with every heat cycle and prevent any changes in behaviour associated with heat cycle. Females that are not spayed, but who do not have puppies, may develop false pregnancy or infection in the womb. Early spaying of females reduces the risk of them developing mammary cancer (breast cancer) later in life.
Some male dogs develop antisocial behaviour when they reach maturity. This may be in the
form of sexual behaviour - mounting other dogs or people!! Uncastrated dogs, if left to their own devices, may patrol a wide area in search of a mate and can detect a female in season a long way away, making recall difficult. A dog who wanders is far more likely to be involved in a car accident. Castrating male dogs also reduces the risk of them developing diseases of the prostate in later life.
Spaying & Neutering not only protects the buyer from an unwanted litter and your puppy of possible cancers related to dogs being left entire but it is also a way to protect the development of the Australian Labradoodle breed for future generations to enjoy. 'Puppy farms' are prevalent today and it is one of our biggest fear's that one of our dogs could possibly end up here.
Our puppies leave our home at 8-9 weeks of age 'entire'. All of our new puppy owners are legally contracted to have their puppy spayed/neutered before the puppy reaches 12 months of age and provide proof thereof to us. This is a non-negotiable term of sale. If you have any further queries on this please do not hesitate to reach out and we are always happy to discuss further or clarify any points.
