    If you feel that you can be vigilant enough to ensure he does not breed, 12-18 months. If you would rather not bother with making sure he doesn't breed, or he's displaying problematic sexual behaviours, 6 months.

    You're going to get mixed opinions on this one! I waited until Frankie was 18 months, to allow for growth plates to close and for him to fully mature.

    Well...it definitely sounds like I won't do it before 6 months. After that I will discuss with the vet and probably base it on how Bogey is developing both physically and mentally. That is him on my avatar. For some reason I have yet to be able to put a picture on here!! Thanks for the advice.
