I refuse to screw around with such a horrid disease and my dogs have never reacted to the shot.
As Nancy said, I do puppy shots plus one booster at one year and then titers for the others but I don't hesitate to do rabies every 3 years and I wouldn't hesitate on even a booster if they ever came in contact (heaven forbid) with a infected animal. It's not just the animal you're protecting but the humans including yourself as well.
You can deal the side effects of the vaccines, you CANNOT expect the same from the actual disease
