So we bring home the pup on Saturday and we're very excited. We've been driving all over Portland looking at natural supply stores, as well as this cool new indoor dog park. I was so impressed with the facility that I decided to volunteer there. I don't plan on bringing the pup there until he's a bit older and fully vaccinated, but something occurred to me: I will be around a lot of dogs and dog waste. Is there a chance that I could bring home parvo on my shoes or clothes?

I imagine so, it's a very hardy organism so you'd want to make sure your puppy doesn't come in contact with the clothes and shoes you wore there. Naturally you'd already have washed your hands before you pet your puppy. Your pup will be still be susceptible 2-4 wks after the vaccination. I had a gsd pup that suffered from parvo and it's a horrible thing- luckily she survived but it was miserable for her to go through.
