can a breeder force me to neuter my dog?

I am looking into getting another dog, possibly another Golden. We were thinking maybe something that doesn't shed so much but I have to say my heart really belongs to Golden's and I can't see myself having any other breed.

anyway. I have been looking at breeders sites and some of them say I have to spay/neuter at 10 months or no later than 12 months.
I strongly believe in waiting till 18-24 months.
So, what if I got a puppy and didn't neuter it at 10 months what could the breeder do?
Should I try to come to some sort of agreement with the breeder that I would never use the dog as a stud if they agreed to let me wait.
I have no intentions whatsoever to use any of my dogs as studs, Cody included but we do want to be able to wait the 18 months before we neuter.

Just wondering, but how would the breeder know if you didn't get him neutered until later? Will s/he see your dog a lot? Do you live in the same town?
