Puppy Tips

blog 04Because a puppy’s immune system will not kick in fully until the third round of shots at around sixteen weeks, many modern owners resist walking their puppies until they are four months or older. In fact, some of owners are so scared of parvo and other illnesses, they want to encase the puppy in a protective bubble for its first months.

Imagine if you kept a human child in the house until they were a teenager. What kind of person do you think they’d become? It’s likely they either wouldn’t have any clue how to deal with the outside world.

They would grow to be timid and antisocial or might go to the other extreme—bursting with repressed, frustrated energy, and become a force for destruction the minute they got a taste of freedom.

An over-protected puppy can have a similar reaction if it is essentially quarantined through adolescence.
