There's nothing in butter that your dog isn't getting (in moderation) in their quality dog food.

A few licks of butter here and there won't hurt your dog, but large amounts lead to obesity or dangerous health problems.

While neutering your dog might help to calm them down a bit, sometimes that's not the only cause of a dog being a bit much… Neutering your dog will only do so much to calm them down – the rest is up to you.
