Vaccination

4 posts in this topic

Nepal_AU   

Finally  brought in a brittany puppy few weeks ago from the register  breeder in Melbourne.  Loving it :). It had it first vaccinations at 6 through  breeder and  second vaccinations  in 10 weeks , last week. Vet told me i can only have final one 6 weeks later at 16. But i read 4 weeks apart so should be at 14. Since puppy schools are mostly closed and or not available till late july feel like i am missing out on dog socialization. So if i can have his shot at 14 i be able to take him out earlier . Just wondering  if it is ok to vaccinate at 14 or should i wait till 16 ? So where can i take him as he already had his second shot ?

 

Thanks all in advance for your replies every  one has been really helpful and got useful information always.

Congrats on your puppy! Here’s a position statement from AVSAB on socialisation. You do not need to and should not wait until the last needles!

Many positive trainers are offering online puppy schools at the moment and will teach you how to properly socialise your puppy. The PPGA website is a good place to look for trainers. Two I know off the top of my head are All Pets Education & Training, and Polite Paws. 

 

Socialisation is about forming positive associations with all manner of things including novelty, noises, surfaces, sights, etc. Not just seeing other pups at classes and definitely not the puppy mosh pits that can happen at poorly-run classes. Or going to dog parks (DO NOT go to dog parks). As an example, just going on a drive, parking the car, and seeing the world pass by from a safe place can be socialisation.

 

Oh something else I recommend is getting the sound proof puppy training app which has a bunch of noises you can play while they’re doing something fun like eating meals or playing with you. Be sure to read the instructions. :)

Most puppy schools allow unvaccinated puppies (or puppies not finished their schedule) as they clean the area with f10 or similar beforehand anyway - so ask around and see if puppy schools have places available for you and your puppy anyway :) 

 

Just make sure you use a puppy school that is not just a free for all play session it's not great doggy manners to constantly run up to other dogs and get in their faces. 

 

PK has given some great tips, so definitely give those a go

Depends on the brand used ,the answer is based on what has been used .
Your breeder should be the person you ask about this
