That is a VERY important thing, which this article leaves
out.
When your puppy is very little, you shouldn't take him out of the housr until he or she has had the DHLP(P) shot AND
BOOSTER!!
Parvo is a very serious disease that can live in fabrics, carpet, and even frozen grasses for up to 8
months.
If you catch it in time, the odds are 50-50 that your little one will make it. At
best.
Socialization is VERY important to your dog, but breeders get the pups aquainted to noises, eachother, new people, and new surfaces IN THEIR OWN
HOMES.
Wait to train them until it's safe. Please. Please. Please!

I think this is a great article. I have a 2 mon. old male, black Lab puppy that I'm going to compete with in Agility. In Agility socialization is a must: buzzers, banging teeters, barking dogs, smell of food and treats. All this could drive an unsocialized dog nuts! Thanks for these great articles and keep up the good work!

I have a very timid / noise sensitive puppy. He has gotten so much better with car noise and trucks. He actually 'walked' and didn't bolt past a lawnmower this morning so walking him 4X's a day on the same route (varying once in awhile) has gotten him used to noise. He is still weary of people coming up to him (but doesnt mind going to the person) so we're working on that behavior
too!
Thank you for this article!

I like the idea of socialization, yet our vet says that we should not take our 12 week puppy anywhere, not even a neighborhood walk, until all his vaccinations are complete ... sometime around 4 mos. old. There is a risk of the virus, parvo. I noticed that this article does not mention this precaution. Perhaps parvo is more of a risk in Southern California, and not the rest of the country? We do socialize with people, children and our adult dog ... but we haven't socialized with other dogs, or outside our yard.
