Gastroplexy was recommended (and done) for my last Dobe when he had bloat and required surgery and they did the gastroplexy during bloat surgery. And it was done again on my current Doberman at the same time when she was spayed.

I would definitely do it again in future for any deep chested dogs I own, ideally at the time of spay if they are a bitch. It's a little tougher with male dogs as Melbrod says, but perhaps the laparoscopic approach is an option.
