i waited untill my pup had his 2nd round of shots before we were
out and about. once my pup received his 2nd round of shots i waited
1 week before we were out and about. after his 2nd round of shots
his was in a puppy class. i didn't carry my dog places. i didn't want
him getting use to being carried.

maybe social imprinting doesn't close at 12 weeks. what happens to
all of the pups that find homes at 10 weeks old, 11 weeks or 12
weeks old? they can be socialized, yes or no? i think
what you're saying about social imprinting closing at 12 weeks
is textbook referent, i question it in actual practice.

I have taken pups out and about as soon as I got them. Just took them to places that were low risk. The vet clinic is the one I wouldn't let them walk but carry them.

>>>> Social inprinting closes at around 12 weeks.<<<<

You want to show them your world before that time.

i think anywhere people or dogs are is a considerable risk.


So, in my case, I live on a little parkway/greenway that is dog central. I'd never take her over there until round two of shots is past, but what about a sidewalk area?
