I am getting a dog and I live in a large apartment complex where other animals are living as well. My puppy will be 8 weeks old when I bring him home and will have only had one of his parvo shots. I have heard time and time again that puppy pads are very negative and teaching a dog to potty inside if you eventually want to teach it to go outside is not okay. How should I go about allowing my dog to potty outside at these apartments, but also protect him from parvo? Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone used potty pads for the first month and then transitioned puppy to outside later?
