Sabo got started late on shots I guess :/ his first set was done at 10 weeks and the vet said we can catch him up at 13 and until then, no playing unless its controlled (family with vaccinated dogs, friends, etc...we don't know anyone with dogs!!) I see everyone here already taking 10wk old pups to training and stuff---how? We're shots done earlier?

I'm so confused!!!

I'm not a vet and only play one on TV (that is my disclaimer) :)

My boy was vaccinated with the breeder at 6 weeks. I know that vaccine did nothing to protect him because of the maternal antibodies of his mother still present in his system.

I followed Dr. Dodds vaccine protocol. Not saying that you should but I discussed it with my vet and we were both on the same page. With *me* he got vaccinated at 9 weeks, 14 weeks, I did opt for 20 weeks, rabies at 6 months, then his booster at a year.

At 12 weeks we started our first group training class and the trainer accepted the proof that he was vaccinated. It's easy to worry about exposure at that age but just use common sense and enjoy your puppy!
