It can take up to 20 weeks or even more for maternal antibodies to wane, and yes, they interfere with the vaccines and prevent them from being effective. This is why a series of shots is given. We don't know when the maternal antibodies have worn off, but we want the pup to be protected. So the shots are started early and given periodically so that when the antibodies do wear off the pup is unprotected for as little time as possible. This is also one reason why we occasionally see a "fully vaccinated" pup get parvo.

In the UK it's two weeks after the final vaccination (28 days from the first vac), this can vary I believe from 9 days depending on the type of vaccine used but I've always been informed that it is better to ere on the safe side & wait the full 14 days. But it doesn't mean that you can't take your pup out - just no paws on the ground - we took ours out in the car, to friends (without dogs) & even for walks carrying the pup in an adapted sports bag! Know some will take theirs out 7 days after the first vac but for me I'd rather just be safe.
does more hare than good being overprotective



AVSAB Position Statement On Puppy Socialization

Quote:

The primary and mostimportanttime for puppy socialization is the first three months of life.1, 2 During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli and environments as can be achieved safely and without causing overstimulation manifested as excessive fear, withdrawal or avoidance behavior. For this reason, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive such socialization before they are fully vaccinated.

...

Behavioral problems are the greatest threat to the owner-dog bond. In fact, behavioral problems are the number one cause of relinquishment to shelters.3 Behavioral issues, not infectious diseases, are the number one cause of death for dogs under three years of age.
While puppies’ immune systems are still developing during these early months, the combination of maternal immunity, primary vaccination, and appropriate care makes the risk of infection relatively small compared to the chance of death from a behavior problem.

So cute !!! Dooley had a major problem with fleas when we picked her up at 13 weeks old we have a neighbor that is a retired vet and he told us to wash her in dish soap ( like dawn or joy) soap her up real good then wrap her in a towel for 15 min. Don't let her get cold then rinse off and dry her good at that age we could dry her with the hair dyer it really helped us!

What a beautiful pup! Just hold her and keep her close and she will be a love! I had a collie that was weaned at 6 weeks, and she was an excellent dog. Hounds may be different, but I bet you can give her what she needs.
