we LOVE puppies….but please leave them at home until they are 6 months old!

We’ve seen a number of puppies at the dog park lately….and it really isn’t the best place for a puppy.  Don’t get me wrong…..we LOVE puppies….it is just that they are not psychologically ready to deal with adult dog, some of which might not have the patience for a puppy AND they can pick up a number of nasty, life-threatening diseases until they are fully vaccinated. The HDP has a rule that puppies under 6 months should not use the park. Please….for the sake of your young friend….please wait!  

Here is a good article on why a puppy is not psychologically ready to hang with the big dogs:  http://www.ohbehave-dogtraining.com/dog-parks-not-for-puppies
