Hi. We are in the process of researching puppy care and might be getting one this Summer. I am finding all of this information about how you aren't supposed to take puppies under the age of 15 weeks for walks at all, due to lack of immunity. I definitely understand why you wouldn't want to take a young puppy to the dog park or expose them directly to other dogs (like taking them to a friend's house who has a dog, etc.), but does this mean we can't even walk a puppy outside around the block? I am having visions of being housebound with a new puppy all Summer and getting stressed that we will go stir-crazy, feel trapped inside, etc. We live in New England so as soon as it is nice out, we practically live outside. Was hoping ti time puppy's arrival with school getting out for the Summer, but am now thinking maybe earlier is better so that we can take it outside by the time the nicer weather hits. Advice?
