10. wait

I don't know about day care or how difficult your situation might be to keep your dog from intact females, but there is way too much pressure to just neuter dogs and think it has no effect on other things (joints and bones, weight, muscle, cancer et). For sure wait until fully grown, but if you could waiting for years is better yet, in older years helpful for aging boys. So much pressure to see everything neutered, from the public, the vets, and I suppose day care. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/03/opinion/dogs-spaying-neutering.html I think this has been sold as an easy fix that is good for the dog... but " Elsewhere in the world, spaying and neutering is not necessarily seen as the “responsible” thing to do. It is heavily discouraged in parts of Europe, such as Norway. Those countries also have very few stray dogs and a far less casual relationship with dog ownership.Jul 22, 2019" The Atlantic 2019
