Lesson 25 ª








When can it begin to go out of the house?

It is better if we don't take the dog out until its proper vaccination has been completed. Until this time, it can easily be infected by those illnesses we have mentioned before (parvovirus and distemper are among the most common).

This rule comes with a series of problems:

1.If the vaccines started late for any given reason (illness, or if we picked it up a little older than usual,... ), after having all its proper vaccines, our dog might have some problems in learning how to socialize, it can be afraid of cars, it might find it hard to relate to other dogs as these come across,...

2.Another problem is taking your new puppy everywhere for everyone you know to see it, and this is actually the moment it needs to stay home.

3.We usually think that if its "going" in the house, it won't "go" outside on the street or in a garden as it grows older. We will later show you how to relieve the problem of dogs which defecate or urinate in the house.

For the previous cases, this is my advice:

Above all, we need to be aware of the dangers of taking a dog out without having its vaccines. If it is a small dog, we can take it out in an appropriate bag and don't leave it on the floor at unsafe locations (another dog around). If it is a large dog, find less crowded places and they need to be as clean as possible. For example, if you are at the beach, try not to have it around dry sand (it is less cleaner and its temperature is ideal for infectious agents). Try to be around wet sand since the ocean cleans it quite often. Bear this points in mind as well as try to keep the vaccines of your dog up to date.
