Hello All, I am brand new to the forum and hoping you all can help. Me and my Girlfriend will soon be collecting our first puppy together (in around 7 weeks time). We initially had put a deposit down for a male as we have always had male dogs in the past and have a 4 year old Springer who we have not had castrated as my girlfriends family would like to breed from him at some point. Unfortunately, when the pups were born the litter contained only females so had to either take the deposit back or agree to take a female. As soon as we saw the photos we knew we had to take one as they were so adorable, so we are now super excited to collect our little GSP as soon as she is ready. My question is when is best to get the pup spayed? I have read online that you can get this done as early as 8 weeks and many advise you should get this done before the first season. However my partner is adamant we have to wait until the pup has had at least 1 or 2 seasons before we get her done. I myself would like it done as soon as possible as we will be aiming to leave the GSP pup with the Springer during the day while at work and this will be very troublesome during the times she is in season. Any help would be much appreciated.
