Anybody know what age a male dog sexually matures. My male is right around 6 months, and I've never had a male before, so I was just wandering. The reason is that my female is coming into season in the next week. I plan on neutering the male once he is fully developed structurally, but for now I think I'll have a fight on my hands.
I don't want to spay the female yet, as she is turning into a fine little dog, and I want to test her in a few different orgs. and possibly breed if she does well with hunting, testing, and all around companionship. If I breed, I want the outcome to be a truly versatile litter. A dog that can run in the field, swim in the marsh, and still be low keyed enough to stay in the house and sleep in bed with me.
