    My puppy 12 weeks old got her jabs friday and I was told we couldn't walk her until next week. She's really overexcited at the moment and needs to exert some excersise is the week just an exaggerated guideline ?

    No, meant for a walk, walk out the front, to the park, etc.... far enough away to stop knawing feet, and hiding under sofa's were no one can reach her barking and snapping at you :roll:

    weakens the immune system maybe?

    where is LLM when you need her...she trains dogs

    FYI...may want to change the title before you get the desperate housewives in here

    Of course your professional vet will over exagerrate.:roll:

    Take her out at your own risk!!

    cant you run her round the garden???

    Our pup had second injection a week past Tue and we waited till the Sat to take him outside the garden but then it wad only really around the front of the house. Avoided contact with any other dog. I knew what your saying but I would not want to risk anything fir the sake of just keeping him in another week

    I seem to share my garden with fox's :x and they carry lots of viruses I hear

    Mine is 11 weeks and i was about to post this about this time last week, he got his second injection on the 1st, so wasn't allowed out until the 8th. We took him out onto the drive on the 5th and had his first proper walk on the 6th (just round my estate) and i don't know what the effects are of taking him out too early, but he seems to have had no effects

    Its not just contact... nasties can be passed on through doodoos as well remember ;-)

    for the sake of a week is it really worth taking the risk.........we are only talking 7 days here aren't we???
    and as for barking, snapping at you and trying to knaw on feet......think you need to start watching the dog whisperer for some training tips!!!!

    As above.. proper training seems more the case rather than thinking he just needs to 'run it off'.

    Ummmm this sounds familiar

    you gotta be careful its only a puppy and it doesnt really need walking if you walk a pup too far it will do more harm than good

    :-D I train it to stay outside the front room, the rest of family ignore it and give her attention. I make her stop barking and the rest of the family give her treats to come from the sofa :roll: It not just that she's always running up and down, jumping about needs somewhere to let off some energy. I'll just wait 3-4 days sure she'll be fine

    If you ignore the teeth it looks really cute ...then you look at the teeth

    Your dog is not properly covered by the vaccinations until a week -10 days past their 2nd jab, until then they will be at risk of contracting the various fatal diseases the jabs cover them for, my brother is a vet, his wife his nurse and I have bred British Bulldogs for many years.

    until they are older a puppy should only walk 5 minutes for every month of its life....so even now you could only walk it for 15 minutes(7.5 mins each direction) before you would have to bring it home again........don't really think it would ware off that much energy in only that short amount of time. It might be worth looking into its diet perhaps that might answer why it is so hyper and agressive. What breed of dog is it and what type of food is it on?

    The really bad diseases, such as Parvo virus can be transferred through wet grass.

    Takes a week for your pup to develop immunity.

    Very exciting taking a puppy out first time, very upsetting if he gets Parvo:(

    PS above is right. Too much walking when young can damage joints and bones because they are not developed enough at such an early stage. We were advised only 15 mins walk for the first 2 weeks after ours was allowed out. Worth noting.

    EDIT: Bottom line... for the health of your dog over the next decades... dont risk it ok !

    I tell my clients 10 days after the jab date. Its not worth the risk. Parvo virus is getting more common these days. Don't risk it.

    As for training, you need to start this now, and have everybody in the house sticking to the rules. You will have a unbalanced dog on your hands otherwise and that can be deadly.

    yeah too many dogs out there that have anxiety and temper problems.....must concentrate on trining first.

    I have a cocker spaniel, he is now 7 months of age......by 10 weeks he would sit,lay,paw, wait, all on command....very important stuff for them to learn before they start going for walks......other wise they just drag you along were they want to go!!
    Cocker spaniels are very exciteable dogs well known for their hyperactiveness, very hard to train at the best of times......thts why the correct diet is so very importance to control their mood swings.
