    doubt there's a link there. How old is he? How much exercise (physical/mental) does he get on a daily basis?

    I was wondering the same thing. I had Tal neutered at 7 months and could tell no difference except he became slightly more affectionate. Other than that I didn't notice any other changes.

    Few things to try: (and again, I have never heard of a neuter increasing a dog's energy level)

    -Structured obedience or agility classes - challenge his mind as well as his body
    -more running exercise. Is there a dog daycare near you? Or a dogwalker you can hire? Any offleash parks in your area? Or perhaps you can teach him to jog beside a bicycle.

    Guinness was exactly like this after his neuter...he became a total little bugger! I'm not sure if it was a change in hormones or what, but hubby and I kept looking at each other like "what the hell, I thought they were supposed to calm down after a neuter". We are almost 6 weeks past now, and he is MUCH better. Maybe it just takes time for them to regulate themselves or something?

    The testosterone levels don't leave the body for one month post-neuter. Since he's 1.5 years old...I'd say that it has to do more with him being a teenager that doesn't get enough exercise than his neuter.

    Well, Guinness gets plenty of exercise, even the day after his neuter we took him for his regular walks etc. - just no fetching and running- and he was still getting into stuff ALL of the time. Now six weeks later he is back to his old self. It isn't the "oh my gosh, what are you into NOW/AGAIN" that it was for a few weeks post neuter. Maybe it's a coincidence but he seems to have settled back into his routine again and I have a bit of my sanity back
