What kind of answers are these ? Rude at best sounds like another " want to be " expert here.

I would just like to ad, that spaying/neutering later in a dog's life is NOT foolish.  MANY studies have shown the link to early neutering/spaying to osteosarcoma.  My vet has advised us to NOT spay our 11 month old Golden until after she has reached sexual maturity.  Having just gone through the absolutely horrific experience of losing my precious 7 year old Golden male to this horrible disease, I will endure what I must to help ensure the health and longevity of my new female.

Experience

Through my volunteer work with a large dog guide school, I know a little about all the breeds they use including Goldens. I have extensive experience with the closely related Labs. The service dog schools have acquired a wealth of knowledge about raising well behaved, healthy dogs with long, active lives. They do not share it with the general public, but pass on the best of it to those like me that raise puppies for them. I am part of a group that has raised dogs for 6 different service dog schools. We meet monthly for training and share information.
