Not that I didn't get asked all the time 'What's wrong that she can't walk?'

Um, she's 10 weeks old and hasn't had all her shots? She loved it though, got to go so many more places than Otto did as a pup because I didn't have a cart for him.

This is myfavorite one of her rolling - opening day for my son's little league.

readaboutdogs I like the shopping cart idea! I'll have to remember that for my next pup!

Well, you hadn't mentioned the military base, just that it was a wooded area. And wooded areas in most places could have some various types of crime... which is why I mentioned it.

But yes. For the pup's health, good idea to avoid it for now. Could be a great places for in future, but for now... just enjoy him at home.

Venus was rolling at 9 weeks, out seeing the neighborhood where she now walks, going to cubscouts, ball games, the beach. I had one of those fold up shopping carts for her, piece of foam in the bottom. Throw it in the trunk and you're good to go! (LOL until the pup gets so big the wheels fall off!)

As for safety, use a leash until you have a reliable recall, and be proactive in being your pup's protector. For your own protection, maybe keep a flashlight and taser or something? Depends on where this place is located...

SuperG I think Sp00ks,Serbrider and JakodaCD OA bring quality advice to the table. I would guess there is another side to the table as well....however I agree with the three of them. I can appreciate your excitement on wanting to get after it ASAP but I think you'll find your living quarters what ever they may be, will be a great place to start. You get one shot ( at times ) at indoctrinating a dog....the goal is to do it so you never have to undo what has happened previously...if that makes sense.

I'm excited for you....new pup..yours....the bond begins...I can guarantee...the effort, patience and understanding in the beginning will make for an incredible long haul.

Enjoy,

SuperG

JakodaCD OA Something to think about if the area isn't used much or at all for other dogs, is wildlife.

You don't want your puppy picking up some weird disease from wildlife either.

I always take my young puppies with me, in the car, and to say, my mom's house where I know it's 'safe'..

Only you can make the decision, tho I can be paranoid about puppies catching stuff, I kinda play it by ear when they are young.
