DeK.O. 1st visit to the skate park at 11wk. old.

I have had DeK.O. since 8 weeks. After getting his 1st shot+kennel cough immunization at 9-10 wks, I have been trying to take him to new place and everywhere with me. At the dog park, he seems really confident, outgoing and independent. This is his first time at this skate park and I was really amazed at how calm he was. He reacted much to all the stimulus. I was able to recall him, have him sit and release on command. Please watch this short video and tell me what do you think? Sorry for the sound quality, it was really windy.

I think that taking a puppy who has had just one set of shots to a dog park is extremely dangerous.

Think I'm more careful at a specific 'dog' park. Need to make sure all the meetings are good ones with wonderful dogs AND people. Plus healthy dogs, but depending on your area I'm sure some places are better than others. But I also take my pups fairly early on to regular park areas. As long as I use my common sense to keep my pups safe they do fine.

Looks like a fun time was had by all! Keep up the good work.
