Intact vs neutered

Was just curious if any members on here have had male boxers left intact their entire lives.

Reason I ask, is because I saw research involving boxers where they recommended waiting till full skeletal maturity and less instances of common boxer issues. So I'm at the point of where I was going to get him neutered and I'm thinking what is the point.

Iv'e heard all the warnings of, aggression, dominance, mounting, etc. and I can say Zuke has none of those issues.

So is there really any reason to get it done? Because it sounds like the benefits of staying intact out way neutering.

I personally would not. But I'm sure you will get a bit of push back if you decide not to.
The way I look at it, if I have my dog under control and isn't left outside for hours on end... there shouldn't be any problem.
Also the 2 biggest pain in the ass dominant dogs in my neighborhood are both males that were neutered. I'm beginning to believe neutered or intact has nothing to do with dominance.
Ding, Ding, Ding... we have a winner! ..:cheers:
