Q. How soon can pup get out with other people and dogs?

Give the dog two or three days at home, to get to know and bond with you. Then you can take him out but remember until he has his vaccination around 11-12 weeks old you should avoid any public places where he could encounter dogs who might be unwell. Instead go to a friend’s house, also if they have healthy, happy dogs invite them to bring them round.

Give pup time to settle and relax in new places and just let him explore at his own pace and this will depend on how much social outings have been included in his earlier upbringing. You are creating a family pet and he should feel comfortable around all sorts of people and situations.

Our motto: Get your dog to meet a minimum of 100 new people by the time pup is four months old.
