The ISPCA recommend around 6/7 months. Some people prefer to wait until they are over a year old but your pup will have a season so you have to be careful she doesnt get caught.

I have a male staffy x but he got his nuts taken off. Im thinking it might calm her down she is very good in the house but once she is out playing with my dog she keeps biting him which is getting a bit worrying

I am not sure if spaying your bitch will alter her behaviour you have to step in now and try and put a stop to her biting your other dog. I dont think there are any benefits to be gained by letting a bitch have a season before she is spayed so IMO I would talk to your vet when she reaches 6 months old. Although the male is castrated if your bitch has a season it could still cause him to become anxious although he can do nothing about it.

I am stepping in she only does it when he is running after a stick or ball she just runs after him and bites im worried he will react and hurt her. Apart from that she is constanly licking him and following him everywhere they get on. Its like something clicks in her head when he runs she is good with other goods aswell.

have a look at that link it gives good info on spaying pro's and con's , but it seems to agree with the last post that for a bitch if your gonna get it done anyway earlier is better so after 6 months is spot on

Sounds like she is just getting a little to eager when they are playing and it is just a puppy thing. I suppose all you can do is keep a close eye and watch for signs of your staffie that he has had enough. That used to happen in our house all the time when the toys were brought out and even to this day I have to be very careful every dog has something to play with.

i got daisy done at 9months and i havent looked back. no dogs following us on a walk or whinging to get at her.
my lot play very rough with each other so i have to keep an eye but there getting so used to me shouting HAY HAY HAY and they stop.
shelby is living with me now so ive had abit of trouble the last few weeks. the two bitches ganging up on vito but he told them off and looks like it worked too. i let them sort it out themselves but i still watch and if i think its going to far i step in and break it up.

ah sure when cindy and d-vo be playing cindy gets too much after a while for him cos she is lighter and faster and sometimes we would hav to step in and calm things down if she is trying to force him to play by niping him and barking in his face. but its still only dogs playing around and its best to just watch them and they will sort things out themselves usually

They get on like a house on fire 99percent of the time she just bikes him when he is running full speed for some reason she is not doin it as much now. He is starting to put her in her place a bit. Goin on holidays Sunday they are goin to kennels for a week socailisimg with other dogs for the week will do her world of good
