I am booked in for puppy training classes starting Monday. We don't get Pickle until 31st March but the lady at the training class has a puppy for us to practise with. She is suggesting that we bring him along when we get him. BUT obviously he will only have had his first set of injections. She said it wouldn't matter as all the puppies are either fully vaccinated or on their first set but to go with vet's advice - some say yes some say no apparently.

I don't know that I feel comfortable with taking him before his second injections have taken effect. I don't mind attending and learning with another dog because I can obviously put into practise with him when he gets here. I also think it would give me some confidence too!

So would you take him before the second injections or not? Thanks x

I had the same dilema when I first got Millie. In the end I chose not to take Millie before she was fully vaccinated, because the training classes were outdoors. And I was advised not to join in. Wish I had really, nothing like getting on with the training. Its also very unusual for a puppy not to be vaccinated and I doubt those that aren't will be in puppy classes.

However because Millie had to have a third vaccination due to the breeder giving one make and the vet giving another make (I worked this out only recently thanks to Turi) she was not allowed up until nearly 13 weeks. I actually took her out one weekend , carrying her most the time and putting her down to go to the loo., before her final vaccination, the vet wasn't impressed. I decided they were being overly fussy.
