    DefaultNeutered vs Unneutered

    Do they smell different? Pitch was introduced to my neighbors Yellow Lab. Pitch is intact, and the other dog isn't. The other dog was very intrigued by Pitch's back end, kept sniffing him. Do they put off a different sent? They have another dog at their house so it isn't like this dog has never seen another lab before.

    The hormones are obviously different in intact and altered dogs. Therefore the scent they put off is different. I know when I did vet work at the local zoo, they had problem with reproduction explosion in the alpha pair of wolves. The curators decided to spay/neuter the pair thinking that would stop the reproduction problem. The next spring there was another litter of wolves from the NEW alpha pair. The altered pair lost their status as alpha because of the hormone depletion. Apparently, the other pack members knew almost immediately.

    I kinda thought it had to do with that. My neighbors lab lives for his ball, and wasn't interested in it at all while Pitch was around. I think he was just curious how Pitch carried his Balls differently than he does.

    Kinda surprised that the curator would not know that would happen.
