Our wonderful citiies! Honestly I would just do as you planned and not follow any of these crazy orders. My cities has them too, and know when I moved here with my show breed (no pups but dogs were intact) I went to clear each with the city. I had every base covered, proof of showing, microchips, shot records etc. The lady at Animal control didn't even know about the rules, said just go home and keep doing what we were. She said the only time they would be involved was if the dogs posed a barking problem that bothered neighbors! I asked for a form on city letterhead to confirm my actions and she said there wasn"t one! So now I keep all my records neatly in my files, my dogs are strictly monitored and I have never purchased our yearly dog registration after that. Goofy city who hasnt enough personel to handle the problems we have let alone monitor all the rules they don't know about!
I would just wait for Yogi neuter and then register him with your city, unless you really want to take the class if you honestly think your city would get you if you don't. My town has lost my respect for animal control and I honestly don't know where our monies are going in this regard. I just try my hardest to be an excellent neighbor and privately cover all my bases if anyone should ever come by. My records are neatly kept and easily pulled out if needed. Just sad when people try and are put against such stupidity, when others don't do anything and are allowed to keep animals in a less desireable way.
I really applaude you for trying to follow the rules. Shame when the people who are representatives of the very rules you are trying to follow are ignorant of the laws of which they are supposeto be enforcing.
