hi people, i am looking to buy an 8 week old border collie pup which has just had its 1st vaccination. the problem i am faced with is that my dad has a dog in our backyard already, now i know your not meant to socialize or walk your pup near other dogs until 2 weeks after there 2nd shot but its kinda impossible for it to avoid my dads dog in our backyard. my dads dog is like 5-6 years old and had all its vaccinations so is it a risk to put my pup in the yard with him? or is only for unvaccinated, disease carrying dogs, etc..
any help would be appreciated as i have to ring the breeder back with a def yes or no soon otherwise ill miss out.
thanks in advance!

The risk is only if you expose him to unvacinated dogs...

that said if your yard has no fence its possible unvacinated dogs have walked on your land, they can leave distemper and parvo behind.


aside from that, you should be ok. :)
