Should your puppy attend classes before they've

completed their vaccinations?

The first several months of a puppy's life are a critical period for learning about the world. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior states that, "puppies can start socialization classes as early as 7-8 weeks of age,"

and that "...it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive socialization before they are fully vaccinated." 

 

We require that your puppy receive at least the first round of their parvo vaccine or a titer before their first class and that they receive their rabies vaccine/titer at the age recommended by their veterinarian. 

 

Read the AVSAB position statement below and discuss what's best

for your puppy with your veterinarian.
