I know this is going to sound like a weird question to ask, but I was just curious about something. When Teddy was playing with the poodle from across the street, I noticed something about them that I hadn't even thought about before. The other poodle is two months older than Teddy, but his penis is huge by comparison. That dog is intact and Teddy is not.

Does neutering before maturity make a dog's penis stay small forever? I'm really hoping it does, because I like the fact that it is small and discreet and not "out there" like that other poodle's. Or could Teddy's grow to be that size in a couple of months?

:lol: So, Marian, what you're saying is size DOES matter??? :pound:

I don't have a lot of experience with male poodles (or male dogs in general since my pack consists of 4 girls!) but the male standard poodle that we fostered about 1 1/2 years ago (he had been neutered at around 6 months old) had a very tiny little "package"... One of the reasons I like my girls so much is that there aren't any "spare parts" I have to watch out for when we do our belly rub marathons, but with Dolce, there wasn't much there to bother me! :) Hope this helps!

LOL!

Yes, thanks, that helps. I think Teddy's little puppy package is the perfect size for belly rubs. :D

When he's sleeping, all you have to do is lightly touch any part of him and he spreads his legs open for a belly rub without even waking up. LOL

In this case I would say smaller is better. :)

I think Olie's is small - he was neutered shortly after he was born. Now when the red rocket appears, it's kind of long. There's certain ways the boys sit it just pokes its head out lol.

I remember reading something about long pendulous penis's.....I think it was a hormonal thing. I groom a couple that are ABNORMALLY big for the size of their bodies. But these dogs are also older and have other health issues going on. Normal healthy male dogs aren't dangling down to the floor.

This is awkward, lol.

Anyway, Tate has a huge.... Ahem.

And the tip of it has always stuck out, and by always, I mean, for the almost year he has been with me, his lipstick is always out of his purse by a little bit. I asked the vet about it and he said that some boys are just like that. I'm not sure if I believe this 100%, but that confirms research I have done as well.

While slightly disgusting (A hates it when I do it), I will sometimes pull his skin back over his ... Business. It doesn't bother him, and he doesn't care that I do it, so I guess it works. But seriously, my SMALL POODLE has the same size penis as my/our greyhound and A's evil problem child. It is odd.

Oh, and he is fixed, by the way. Found him like that. I'm thinking they did it late, as he is a marker, as well as a humper. My aunt's poor doxie. He doesn't try and mount girls, though (he will occasionally go for TQ, but she puts him in his place)... He always goes for the boys though.... Dominance thing, I suppose.

I haven't seen Teddy's lipstick yet. Hopefully I won't faint or throw up when it happens.

I have all girls, but in the salon it usually goes like this; small poodles neutered earlier have small penises and small poodles neutered older have larger penises. Intact small poodles almost drag the floor. It is something all the groomers I work with have noticed. On the ones with small penises its rare to never that you will see his "lipstick". I think you're safe.

Hahahahhaha this made my day when I opened this.

Atticus isnt going to be neutered for another month or so, so I hope his uhm...thing, doesnt get large...would it make that much of a difference to get him neutered when hes 8 months rather than 6?

Thanks - that's very reassuring. :)

The proper term is "package", Michelle, not "thing". I bet Atticus has a cute little puppy package. :D

I plan on neutering Vegas around 7ish months, so I hope his penis isn't too huge by then, lol. He only has lipstick when I get him out of his kennel or greet him, but he doesn't just have a lipstick, he'll have two bulges in the middle of the penis between his scrotum and the tip. That bulge that swells when they mate? Does anyone else males do this? Or is mine just REALLY happy to see me?

Riley has an Extreamly small penis!! It is about the size of a small dogs. What is it they say about nice guys......?
He was neutered about 5-6 months old. I dont mind it, but we all "make fun of" him at work. :) It actually is rather nice. I hate seeing testicles on dogs and a "big package".

Isn't this the most awkward thread ever?! :D

Anyway, from my personal experience, the bulge happens occasionally. The greyhound is VERY noticeable because he is bigger, but it happens to the little guy, too. This is also the case with my mom's boy dogs. I guess they're just REALLLLLLLY happy you're there. lol

I haven't noticed any bulges, but like Atticus, Teddy has so much hair it would be hard to see anyway.

I have a toy,and I have wondered about this for a while. My boy has been fixed since about four months and never any sexual behavior, but from then to now,(5yrs)he has his "special toy" and his penis hangs to the floor. I never had the nerve to bring this up to my vet.
