Would You Opt For a Vasectomy Over Neutering?

When I spotted this piece on Dolittler about canine vasectomy, I was a bit stumped. I mean I had certainly never heard of this process for a pet, and, I admit, found the concept a bit fascinating. The client mentioned wanted this procedure done to her show dog so he'd be "safe" around her other dogs, but wanted to keep his energy and testosterone for maximum ring performance at competitions. The vet writes:

Though it’s an easy surgery (far less painful than a routine castration, with fewer complications, to boot), it’s clear that we vets have serious power over what procedures become accepted as the norm.

What's your take? If you knew this was an option, would you seek it out?
