Just make sure you use the time to get him used to walking on a lead. Ours loved being strolled up and down the back garden

Defo, as soon as we'd put the deposit down on him we went and bought him a lil puppy lead and we've already seen a bed, yes, we're sad but we're counting down the days!!! (38 days til this peaceful house becomes an absolute mess! YAY)

My dog only had 2 injections last year. I understand it depends on what type the vet uses, in the same way that some of the vaccinations have to be given yearly whereas the more modern versions can be given every 3 years.

With regard to other dogs if your friends have vaccinated dogs then they will be fine to bring their dog over for yours to get some puppy socialisation, the only risk is outside the house because you don't know what other dogs have been around.

With my pup I took an educated risk and took her out before the vaccinations were complete. This was based on the advice from the vet that the last parvo in my area was in the early 60's and due to the inner city nature of the area 99% of dogs have their vaccinations up to date. When other dog owners were near we just checked with them their dogs vaccine was up to date. For us it paid off as we have an extremely friendly pup in a breed that is known for its aloof and standoffishness

Oh ok...not sure what the craic is, will see what the breeder, and then our new vet that we chose today, says when he goes for his second lot of vaccinations.

Hi Jen, when we got Ava at 6wks the breeder said that she had had her first vac and she would need her last jab at 12 weeks. I took her in at 12 weeks and the vet wasnt happy that she hadn't been in at 9 weeks for her second jab so we got to take her back for her third soon, actually think it's this week!
wonder if they have a jab to stop bad wind

Hi

I work as a vet nurse in Perth.
The recent info on vaccinations is if the puppy has had a 6 week c3 its best to have 2 C5 boosters afterwards. The science guys are saying there are still too many maternal antibodies still there which makes the vacciantion a lot less likely to work. If you do a 12 week and a 16 week in parvo prone areas and with some breeds such as rotties and dobermans at least you know you are covered.
Either get the breeder to wait until 8 weeks to vax the pup which at the end of the day is a better age to be getting a new little one or pay out and have a couple of C5's done to make sure he/she is fully covered.
Oh by the way different brands of vaccine may require 3 as standard. Just ask your vet, they will let you know what is best.

Jenny

I presume my breeder will give me the vet card along with the pup showing which vaccine it's already had and when?
