My dog is pretty psycho (crying, possessiveness, neediness) and he’s improved soo much since being neutered.

My main reason for neutering him was the spraying. Ick. He sprayed a lot and on everything, but I’m happy to say that he NEVER sprays now. (thank god!)

It was probably because I did it when my dog was a little older like yours, but after we neutered him he actually stayed the same.  He still marked and still humped his little bed like crazy — both were things the vet assured us he would stop doing.  Yeah, that didn’t happen, lol.

Our dog only calmed down slightly, and we were only able to notice a change after a decent amount of time went by, so I think for your situation, it’s too soon to tell. Also, he is still a puppy, so once he gets older, hopefully he will grow out of it.

Our dog went crazy after neutering – almost seemed worse than before.  He calmed down after a few weeks.

It took a few weeks for us to notice any real change. His “hyperness” around other dogs is still a work in progress though.

We never really noticed much of a difference in any of our male dogs.  Maybe they were marginally calmer, but not much.  They all were still pretty crazy, especially as puppies.  

Even though your Fiance picked him up, you could always call up the vet if you have any questions!

We had our guy fixed at 5 months. He was not lifting his leg at that point, and still isn’t (he’s 10 months). We didn’t notice much of a difference after the surgery, other than him humping things less. He still acted like a crazy puppy!!

Ours was 2 years old when we got him neutered… so it was a little late.  He did calm down slightly, but he’s still hyper most of the time.  It could also just be because he is a energetic breed (weimaraner).

We thought ours would calm down… but no luck! He’s still got the same personality, which we’re happy about actually.

My dog is calmer, more playful and NEVER marks! (YESS!!!!!) The marking was disgusting.
