Its a personal thing.  For me, I have a s/n contract that states needs to be done by 6months.  However I am training my dogs for canine sport and have opted to wait to alter them until after a year to 18 months.  My breeder says fine because she knows my intentions with my dogs are not for breeding.  There are studies that show that altering later can help with joint growth.  Esp where we are doing flyball as well as will be training for agility with them both, I would rather not risk and acl tear or anything like that, so I opt to wait based on personal research.

It is a total opinion thing as well.   Here is an interesting article given to me by some breeders.   I think all dogs as pets should be neutered to stop any unwanting preganancies.    Its just the timing of when comes into play!
