When should I get my 8 week old puppies next shots?
He's had his first, 7 in 1...distemper, parvovirus, adenovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, 2 strains of Leptons. Which ones and when do I get his next ones?
That is a huge cocktail of vaccines. I would read this and decide.... Dr. Jean Dodds' Pet Health Resource Blog | 2013 and 2014 Canine Vaccination Protocol - W. Jean Dodds, DVM
Your question is posted in the wrong forum.
Here is a schedule from lifetime vaccine researcher Dr. Jean Dodds
W. Jean Dodds, DVM2013 and 2014 Vaccination Protocol
Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one Dr. Dodds recommends and should not be interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. It’s a matter of professional judgment and choice (YOUR choice not the vet).
9-10 Weeks Old: Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Merck Nobivac [Intervet Progard] Puppy DPV)
14-16 Weeks: Same as above
1 Year: Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)
1 Year: Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (OPTIONAL = titer)

Hope this helps!
The breeders got them done before I got him, but thanks!
Now it's YOUR choice of what he gets!;)
While I agree that a 6 week GSD pup should only get a ( killed parvovirus )
My pup was given a 7 & 1 and Corona at the breeder 12/25 - 2/7 ..
My vet at 10 weeks gave a 7 & 1 no Corona or Bordetella because the dog is not boarded and Corona in California has not been seen in many years.
Find a vet you trust and follow instructions to the tee ..
The second round went well from Sunday ..
Please read the articles so that you can make your own, thought out decision. There is no way of telling WHICH dog can have an adverse reaction to any particular vaccination either immediately or years from now. That is why Dr. Dodds and Dr. Schultz has put information out there on using a Limited Vaccination Schedule.
"Dr Ron Schultz (the world's foremost independent authority on canine vaccines) hates to see them in with anything else and, in puppies, advises that they are completely finished with the viral inoculations before getting a vaccine against Lepto, which he neither recommends nor advocates - even in Lepto endemic areas."
"I have seen older dogs go into kidney failure within two days of receiving a Lepto vaccine."
"Vaccines can also cause the disease you're attempting to prevent. In the Canine Health Concern vaccine survey, 100% of dogs with leptospirosis contracted it just after being vaccinated against it. Leptospirosis, of course, attacks the kidneys."
“Since there are so many Leptospirosis serovars out there, and since the pathogenic strains vary, and since the vaccines cannot guarantee protection from infection, it would make better sense to not inject your dog with any Leptospira vaccines. The trade offs to avoiding adverse events from vaccination - not the least of which can be renal failure within 48 hours of injection, or four years of dermatitis and puritis (itching) – would be the human caretakers actually knowing their dog is sick with a pathogenic strain and having their dog presented immediately for treatment. To do this, animal guardians need to be aware of the symptoms of Leptospirosis in the dog.” http://dr-jordan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/LEPTOMANIA-by-Dr.-Patricia-Jordan.pdf

Mind you, I'm not saying not to vaccinate, just suggesting that you look into this before letting someone else make a decision for you.
BTW....Cute Pup! Have fun with him!
go to the vet with the puppy and ask him or her what vaccines the puppy needs
thing is nobody has a clue as to where you live or if leptospirosis is rampant in your area
corona is generally not necessary
but the 5 way vaccines are necessary and those include parvo and distemper
at the very least get the 5 ways done at the vet so you know they have been done correctly
theres been a few threads lately about puppies that have contracted and died from parvo and one of a puppy overseas with distemper
both are ugly viruses that can kill your puppy quickly
