Hi, Cassie went in to be spay today; she is five and one-half months.  Does anyone know if this will effect a female, (supposedly it helps calm a male down?).   Someone told me it could make her grumpy!!! Is this true? ???
Thanks in advance for any information... .

There is arguments about the valid of the whether or not spaying/neutering calms them down or not, some do mellow, some don't?

I do know that after spaying you should start watching the weight issue, Goldens tend to pack on weight rather quickly.

Is Cassie the one that charges up to people barking? Then wants to be petted after?

Yes, that would be Cassie :).  She is only five months old, but I don't want anyone to be frightened of her.  They grow soooo quickly, but are still babies at heart.  Thanks for the advice...I will watch her weight.   We do try to get regular exercise in also.
