IMPORTANT VACCINATION INFORMATION - Puppies should have received their first vaccination(s) for a minimum of Distemper & Parvovirus at least 7 days prior to attending their first class.  Puppies should not attend classes the same day they receive a vaccination.  Our vaccination guidelines are based on our own veterinarian recommendations, along with the recommendations of the AVSAB (American Veterinarian Society of Animal Behaviour) https://avsab.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Puppy_Socialization_Position_Statement_Download_-_10-3-14.pdf
