    Hi Jeremy,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian and discuss your concerns with them. Neutering can help with some behavior issues but it will work best when combined with behavior modification. Your vet can get some more information from you on the triggers of the behavior and then they can work with you on a comprehensive plan to address the behavior. This may include behavior modification, neutering and/or medications.

Need more information or advice?
