If possible, get him into puppy kindergarten class by the time he is 10 to 12 weeks old, and socialize, socialize, socialize. However, be aware that many puppy training classes require certain vaccines like kennel cough to be up to date, and many veterinarians recommend limited exposure to other dogs and public places until puppy vaccines including rabies, distemper and parvovirus have been completed. In lieu of formal training, you can begin training your puppy at home and socializing him among family and friends until puppy vaccines are completed. Not all inherited conditions are detectable in a growing puppy, and it can be hard to predict whether an animal will be free of these maladies, which is why you must find a reputable breeder who is committed to breeding the healthiest animals possible. They should be able to produce independent certification that the parents of the dog and grandparents, etc. have been screened for genetic defects and deemed healthy for breeding.

I said "you get to keep Oakley this weekend". Thelma said, "I'm lucky!" and grinned from ear to ear. Thelma had a stroke Monday a few days after keeping Oakley for her last time. Thelma is in the ICU now at the hospital and is fading fast. My dad went to the hospital last night and Ellen needed a break so she came out to the parking garage to visit Oakley. Oakley rides "shotgun" with dad so Ellen got in the driver's seat to say hello.
