Re: Dog Park for 8 weeks old?
Eight weeks and second set of shots???
That doesn't sound right either.
Stark didn't receive his first set until the eighth week.
Doesn't the vaccine schedule look like this:
1st - 8 weeks
2nd - 12 weeks
3rd/rabies - 16 weeks
I would never bring a 8 week old puppy to a dog park, or any park that has high dog traffic for that matter, too many things can be picked up or happen to your baby.
If you want to socialize him more, invite friends or neighbours over with happy, healthy, confident, puppy-friendly dogs over to your home.
ETA: I won't even bring my 8 month old puppy to a dog park. At this age, making sure your puppy has ONLY POSITIVE DOG/PEOPLE ENCOUNTERS IS ESSENTIAL to raising a confident, happy, well adjusted dog.
