    I thought puppies could go out one week after their second injection but when Rocky got his today, the vet said 2 weeks :( It's seems like we have been waiting ages to take him out and now we have to wait another 2 weeks :(

    What did others do - one or two weeks?

    Our Vet advised us that we could take Mia out 1 week after her 2nd jab.

    As far as I see it the risk of delayed socialisation is worse than the dangers posed after the dog has recieved both injections and already waited a week. How old is the pup now?

    Good points from you both. I've always waited one week but your posts have made me question why I do that - especially as the pups are, I suppose, as much in danger of catching something from the older dogs in the house who are going out and could be bringing anything in!
