I think de-balling male dogs is inhumane, disfiguring and barbaric. This changes the make up of the dog completely, as hormones are affected. Neutering the female doesn’t alter the female, she is still female.

Do a search on spaying and urinary incontinence. Spaying a female changes a long-haired dog’s coat texture. This coat change is in no way harmful, but it does happen.
However, spay-neuter does have its place, since pet overpopulation puts a strain on municipal finances. And, nobody wants to see dogs euthanized for lack of good homes.
Vasectomies would accomplish the same purpose and the dogs could still have their fun. Maybe they are more expensive.
spaying the female affects the hormones as well, the ovaries are removed.
fixing animals for most people who want them as pets (not breeding) as generally a positive thing. it makes both sexes less aggressive, less impulsive, less detructive, and in some cases makes the difference between an animal you really don’t want to live with and one that is joy to live with. i have viewed it as allowing the animal’s actual personality a chance to dominate their behavior choices, rather than be controlled by their hormones, whch fluctuate and make them more unpredictable and cause them to take actions they would not otherwise do if the hormone levels weren’t over-riding their natural personality (or animality, you get what i mean).
as with anything medical/surgical, a real good veterinarian is crucial.
