    DefaultNeutering & Behavior Changes

    My labrador is 7 months old. He ran away from me about 3 weeks ago and followed some joggers. I did not get him back for 45 LONG minutes. Since I do not have full registration (cannot breed or show him) I will probably get him neutered soon. Do you believe that his behavior of acting protective and his running away will change?

    Neutering him wont make him stop running away but it is a brilliant idea! Might make him more responsive. You need to put him back on a long line and re train the COME command. But it is normal I would say at his age for him to bolt. I had a hard time with Alfie bolting and its only just now at 2 he listens to me. He still does it occassionally but noway as bad as he was.

    No, nuetering won't change his behavior, only training will.
