People need to keep their female dogs penned up better, or spay them before they can be bred. I still hear people that believe a female dog has to have one litter before she is spayed or go through one heat cycle. It's not true. You can spay female dogs early without any long term effects. The only thing you miss out on are the heat cycles and obnoxious males coming around.
Certain large frame male dogs need to finish growing before they are fixed, but that's because testosterone helps temper growth. We are supposed to wait until our male GSD is over a year. We'll see. If he gets too obnoxious, he's off to the vet!
