I’m in the same boat just put a deposit down on a female Gsp
I have a make Gsp who’s intacted and I have no interest in breeding or bleeding
But I want the best upland dog possible, males I was told not to get him fixed because it can mess up testosterone and his drive and growth development.
Females I dont see how it would make much of a difference but that’s just my opinion.
I would like to hear some input as well
