    We brought our puppy home three weeks ago, only to find in the first couple of weeks she's been passing blood in her poo. After a poo sample we got the bad news Giardia AND Campylobacter !! Tomorrow was to be her first day outside the confines of our garden. Absolutley gutted that her socialisation, trips to park and puppy training classes are delayed for another 3 weeks

    You can still carry her around to let her see the world (unless she's a really big breed), and you could have been doing so from day 1. Take some newspaper with you, that you can stand her on if she should need to toilet. Baby slings are good, and spread the weight well. Too big to carry? Use a baby buggy.

    Thank you we have carried her a couple of times but will certainly do this. It was just a bit sad that she couldn't encounter other dogs animals etc at ground level and training classes are on hold. I have done some training but as this is my first time doing this wanted to get it right...she is a small dog (cockapoo) so no probs carrying her. Thank you for your advice, much appreciated

    She should be able to meet vaccinated dogs, best with a few inches between them so she doesn't risk infecting them but as long as they can't access her poo they should be OK.
    Have her vaccinations been started, or is the vet holding off until she's well before beginning the course?
