This is Don Hanson from the Green Acres Kennel Shop and the Woof Meow Show. I recently recorded a Listener Questions episode of the Woof Meow Show with Dr. Dave Cloutier from the Veazie Veterinary Clinic and the first question we answered is so important, I wanted to get it out there right away. It deals with puppy socialization, vaccinations and whether it is wise to keep the puppy isolated until it has had all of its vaccinations. Here is the question and the response from Dr. Cloutier and myself.
For more information on this topic I encourage you to read the AVSAB Position Statement on Puppy Socialization at the website for the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior at http://avsabonline.org/resources/position-statements
