    Default Two Male Pekingese

    Hello

    Our male pekingese are 8 and 2 years old both non desexed. The 2 y.o regularly gets jelous and has fights especially over food. We try to feed them seperately but when he ges territorial its hard to prevent it. When they are separate, they bark at each other on purpose!!!

    The funny thing is the young one likes the older one and gets lonely when he is not around? I am thinking desexing the younger one will change his attitude.

    Am I right??. Any suggestions??

    Thanks

    Not sure if desexxing will help that situation, but it will prevent other problems. Unless you are a registered breeder or are showing the 2 year old, then he should be balless

    It sounds like Mr 2 year old needs lots of training for his aggression.

    De-sexing can change most / some dogs.

    I have read many reviews on de-sexing - all showing minor changes in the dog. My dog Max, suffered a weight issue after being de-sexed and became very lazy - this was a major change we had.

    Also, de-sexing may make your dog aggressive as I have read about this too.

    Please take a look at this recent thread: http://www.dogforum.com.au/general-d...-my-puppy.html

    It may give you some ideas.

    Desex both of them. Desexing a male will make them less likely to show aggression towards other intact males. I garantee it will make a difference. It may not remove the behaviour 100%, but it will make a difference.
    Desexing will possibly remove the behaviour but it is also better for their health(no risk of developing testicular and/or uterine cancer) and personally, the most important part of all, eliminates the risk of any 'oops' litters.

    Belle, desexing does not make a dog put on weight or make them more lazy and desexing does not alter a dogs personality.
    Behaviour and personality are two different things.

    Not all dogs but can for some. I questioned my vet about this and other vets and also researched it and some dogs can become lazy etc.

    Max did even with his continued exercise and same food levels.

    I am just saying that whitesnake should watch their dog to make sure the same thing doesn't happen..

    Why would tying a bitchs tubes or cutting off the testicles make a dog fat or lazy?

    ...How can I explain I am no expert but my vet said he has seen very few dogs becoming lazy or putting on weight after being de-sexed - as de-sexing can calm dogs down.. therefore some lose interest in various activities.

    I have also read that is a myth too Belle, But obviously if Max has been effected in this way by the desexing then it can't be argued. (in your piticular case)

    I had always thought it was a myth up until Max got de-sexed.

    I am just going off my own experiences. But on the other hand, all dogs are different.

    The only reason it 'calms' dogs down is because it eliminates the frustration of trying to do what is natural instinct to them - to reproduce.
    Im sorry to break it, but im telling you, it doesn't make a dog put on weight or become more lazy. There is no reason as to why it would.
