Health Benefits of Delayed Spaying

Good Dogs! (12-05-2016) #6062: Lise from Avidog International discusses delaying spaying a female dog (as Tracie has with her young Weimaraner, Wanda) purely for health reasons and the challenges of dealing with a bitch in heat for a novice like Tracie. Buyers of Avidog Golden Retrievers actually have to sign a contract not to spay their females until they are at least 2 years old, so Tracie is in good company protecting Wanda’s health.
