When to neuter a Boxer. You know, breed really has very little to do with it, as far as when your animal should be neutered or spayed. Neuter being for a male, spayed being for a female dog. Generally most neuters or spays get done when the six to eight month time frame for the animal. Any sooner and it can be a little difficult on the internal organs. Any later and the hormone levels may have already started to affect the dogs behavior and cause them to start marking and things like that. And once that's started, it can sometimes continue even after the dog has been altered. So, again, generally breed has nothing to do with it. Be it a Boxer, a Poodle, a Great Dane, or whatever. Dogs should be spayed and or neutered from about six months to eight months is ideal. Of course, if you go past the eight month mark, you know, just as soon as you can get it done the better, for both your peace of mind, your personal property and, and just to make sure you have an overall better behaved animal.
