Default Duck puppy. Spade or no?

I have a full blooded lab. She's 5 months. And when she's right of age. Should I get her spaded? Or does that affect her performance once she begins duck training?

Spaying won't affect her performance -- might even be better if she's not in heat during hunting seasons.
The main thing to consider (if you decide on spay) is DO NOT do it until after the dog is at least 14 months of age.

It won't affect her performance, but if she turns out to be a really good hunter and you want pups from her you may want to hold off. Wait until she's over a year old to get her done though.
