My pugs are old enough to be neutered

My vet says my pugs are old enough to be neutered , Booga is 7 months and has to mark everything and hump every female dog in the park. Has anyone had results where this went away or been reduced dramatically? He also barks a lot when running around playing.

Snarf will be 6 months, his problem is separation anxiety, I leave to run errands for no longer than 30 minutes and I get back home he will be acting as I haven't seen him in years, he also shakes and trembles, will the neutering calm this down?

First, you cut the risk of getting cancer. My two girls are a year and a half. They are both spayed and still they are still wild and crazy girls. Neutering will help reduce the need to breed. But as far as the humping goes that I think is going to keep happening. My girls hump each other all the time. I was told it is a way of trying to be the alpha dog.
