Affects on neutering a 1-yr old Cavalier King Charles
I am wondering if anyone can offer any advise regarding the pros and cons of neutering a 1-yr old Calavlier King Charles (male).
He is quite a lively dog and we are quite worried about him, as we live close to a busy road. He has had a number of close shaves.
Neutering has been suggested by a dog trainer so that he will bond with us and not want to go 'rambling', but what are the other side-effects expected with neutering. I have heard all sorts of 'rumours' so if anyone out there has any first-hand experience of this particular situation, i would appreciate any replies.

Thanks everyone for the replies - perhaps i didnt fully explain the situation from the outset but our dog is free to roam around our property, not the road. He is fully fenced in and secure, for the most part until he 'finds' a new way to get out; resulting in another patched up fence or wall. It is these little episodes that cause the problems. And neutering him had been suggested as an option to stop the destruction of hedging, fences and wire that he is currently causing.
Thanks for the websites on the Neutering and the 'negatives' of the Cavalier breed.
Thanks to everyone again!
