Q: Does neutering calm a hyper dog?
February 9, 2009 | By Rita W. | 18 answers | Expired: 2011 days ago
Thank you for all the responses to neutering a hyper dog. We walk 4 times a day for about 20-30 minutes. He has tons of toys I have to get on the floor every night and play with him. Also, he is a few weeks away from being 3 years old. I was not aware this could prevent any types of cancer. Thanks again for the input, I will make him an appointment asap.

One other thing that I don't know if anyone added - get him a backpack to wear on your walks. My dog is about the same size of a typical JRT and I got one for him. For additional energy drain - Put a small water bottle on both sides so it has some weight. It drains energy partially because of the weight from carrying it, but more importantly because of the mental energy it takes to carry it. It makes the walk more focused and he's doing something with a purpose - carrying your water. You might find that you don't need to walk him as often.
