|Because I do agility with my dogs, I was going to try and wait til 14 months, but ended up doing it at 9 months because the hormones were starting to override all else. With dogs I've had before, I've done it at 6 months and that worked fine. If you neuter at 6 months, your boy may get a little taller than he would have otherwise (we're talking 1/4" - 1/2"), but should have no other ill effects. Neutering Tucker at 9 months has seemed to be the perfect compromise; he didn't get leggy, but we stopped those obnoxious boy behaviors before they took hold. I would not neuter sooner than 6 months. So, I guess my official opinion is anywhere from 6-14 months.
Oh, and I'll put this as delicately as possible: the older (bigger) the dog is when neutered the bigger his, um, leftovers will be.
