Should I Spay or Neuter my Puppy?

We believe in spaying or neutering but also believe each owner should make an educated choice on when to have the procedure done .  We do not support early spay or neuter.  Studies show the risks to the puppy far outweigh the benefits in the long term.  Here are a couple of articles / video that might help you make the right choice for your situation.
