I've already cheated a little and feel bad- took him to the park with the kids and walked him around the block. He's a big little guy and he has a lot of energy, and since we're having issues with play...he either gets nippy or isn't interested in toys much. Our yard is pretty small and I was counting on play and on leash walks and hikes and mental work and such for burning off a sporting breed's energy.

He's in puppy k- a decision I made based on research on socialization vs. potential health issues. The vet didn't mention anything about arvo rates. I wouldn't be surprised if portion of dogs are unvaccinated because our city has a 60-70% unvaccinated rate for kids.

What did you do?

I'd call your vet and ask them specifically about parvo rates in your area. They will be better able to advise you.

Parvo in our area is very very low. I took Watson out after his second round of shots.

ETA: Of course I was reasonable with it. Didn't go to dog parks or areas heavily populated with dogs.
