Benefits of getting my dog neutered?

I just got a new dog hes a 11 month old German/Australian shepherd mix. When we go on a walk with our 2 female cocker spaniels they are fine. but the second we get home they bother eachother (mostly him bothering them).

He won't mark his territory by peeing on drapes, bed skirts, chairs, couches, or other descreatly available items. Also he would be at a less great risk of developing prostate cancer. If you don't have him neutered them he needs to ejaculate twice a year to avoid being at risk for the cancer.

Glad it helped but even if a dog is house trained they still like to mark their territory.

He won't hump you not anything else, be less hyper sometimes, not as horny, and calm him down.

Personally I hate neutering. You wouldn't want your stuff cut off. However at least your dog won't be able to have puppies. Beautiful littles bundles of life that fill people with joy. That's a benefit.

if he was a purebred it would be a different story... right now hes trying to mate with my 2 female cocker spaniels that are half his size. i cant stand the sound of them yelping at him because of it. so i think this would be the right thing to do.

@questions345, you can't be serious with this answer! We put thousands and thousands of unwanted dogs to sleep every year. Having dogs because the puppies are cute is almost like having kids because infants are cute! Dogs do not view their junk as if it defines them, unlike someone who is posting ridiculous answers to this question.

Actually this is one of my more serious answers. There are ways to regulate dog population with out cutting off there stuff. You don't put infants to sleep because they're abandoned. I never said I would only have puppies because they're cute all i'm saying is that I think it's wrong that people neuter their dogs. I gave a benefit of them being neutered and that was it. You should stop assuming things about people and their opinions.

The main benefit is you are a responsible pet owner. There are so many abandoned, abused and unwanted dogs and cats. Unless you were planning on breeding your dog if he was a purebred, then this would be different. Have your dog neutered for your peace of mind and to avoid more puppies you would find a home for with the chance the new owners would abandon or shelter the dog. Best wishes!

Even purebred dogs need to be rescued. I have adopted at least half a dozen purebreds from shelters. There doesn't need to be any breeding of purebreds unless they are show quality and will be shown, IMHO.

The question was about "neutering" a dog, not "rescuing" a dog. All dogs in shelters should be adopted. I stand by my post. Thank you.

Also, some dog owners will breed their purebred dogs for a few litters, then have them neutered.

The benefit is that you wouldn't have unwanted puppies.

Keeping the testicles greatly increases his chance of developing cancer. One of my vets told me this years ago. It is a responsible thing to prevent unwanted puppies, and save homeless dogs from being put to sleep. He will leave your females alone. Maybe you could also consider getting your females spayed--it is quite a relief for them not to be in heat and all frustrated.
