Waiting to spay/neuter allows the growth plates to close

A long-time breeder of Goldens (now switched to Chin) told me this afternoon that whenever she sold a Golden puppy, she told the buyers NOT to spay or neuter the puppy until 2 years old or the health guarantee was VOID. They need the hormones to keep the hips together while growing. She says there have been articles written about this need for young large breed dogs.
