I'm finally picking up Bertie on Saturday and joe the breeder has said wait a week after he has had his 12 week injections to take him on his first walk ( which is understandable)
However can I take him to friends and family's houses before ( none of them have dogs so won't have to worry about that side whether the dogs are up to date on their injections etc)
And I want to get him used to the car ASAP , is there a time limit on when I can take him out to meet friends as I don't want to harm him to any infections etc

Hi Kerrie - Ann.

Nope absolutely no restrictions on you doing this. The more socialisation in the early days the better! You can even attend puppy parties before the final injection. I did this with my now 10 month old pup Nacho from 9 weeks. It was a great way to get him to meet other puppies and learn the do's and don'ts. I also think he met about 100 people on his first day with me (I carried him around work and everyone couldn't stay away) - The end result is an extremely friendly dog who ADORES people and loves other dogs (except Jack Russells for some reason). :confused:

I bet you can't wait. xxx

Thanks this has put my mind at ease as I didnt want to take him out if there were any risks he shall be coming everywhere with me now that I no this :)
Glad it's helped. Give 'Turi' a search. She has a fantastic blog about her little girl pup called Saffi. Saffi was going around (in arms) on the tube, around London and on the bus from a very early age. :) xx

Hi Kerrie-Ann, Is your puppy having those jabs with Joe's vet or your own. All vets tend to differ with their advice regarding going out after final jabs, some say 1 week some say two. So if it's your vet just have a check what their policy is.
All the other socialisation is essential and great fun for puppy. Try and expose your pup to everything you can think of.
Good luck.

It will be mine but I live in the same town as joe so wether it will be the same vets I'll have to ask?
I just thought I have a friend with a st Bernard and a lab so I can take Bertie round to socialise but will he be allowed on the ground or will he have to stay in my hands If we're outside ?
