After the 2nd round, I got Dag into training but fully vetted the training center and he was in with older dogs. We took a chance but wanted to start his training as soon as possible. It allowed him some socialization in a controlled environment with dogs we knew the training center had shot records on. Also the training center has a cleaning regimen. You can smell disinfectant before dog.
Other than that, we took him to our non dog owner friends homes, most had small kids. We have kept him away from anywhere we thought other dogs frequented. This includes pet stores, dog parks, and some hiking trails.
It's not worth the risk. Parvo is nasty. I would say socialize with people now, dogs a little later. Try and keep him from having any traumatic experiences as your trying to build his confidence. He will go through a fear period early, then likely another a little later. Ours has definitely been through one and I believe that is over for now. He is 4 months tomorrow. He has been a lot of places with us, lots of car rides. Visited family and friends numerous times both at home and at their houses.
That is my advice.
