    Hurley had his 2nd jab on Friday (10 weeks) so vet said he can go out from Friday this week!!! So excited we can't wait, :arf: even Hurley is soo ready to get out in to the world!

    Think I was reading a thread on here a few weeks back, when people said they started going out after a few days??

    Should we wait for the full 7 days??

    We had to wait 2 weeks... it was a nightmare. His first walk in the real world was to the vet for his Rabies jab. I felt so mean :eek:

    I didn't wait, mine have been on the ground once they come out of the vets. I had to with Luna as she weighed so much!

    We had Blades 2nd jab done on the tuesday he was 10 weeks old and walked him for the first time on the sunday after, so no only waited for 5 days! He was so ready to be going out though so thought it was important for his socialising and he was too big to carry anymore! :thumbup:

    We usually wait a couple of days before we take them out.


    A friend at ringcraft was telling me that her daughter had been told by the vet not to take her older dog out for a walk until her new pup has had all its jabs.
