Edwin's Canine Academy​

   Louisville, Kentucky   


My veterinarian has recommended that I do not socialize my puppy until all vaccines are given.  What do I do? 

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive socialization before they are fully vaccinated.  You can read the full AVSAB statement by clicking this text. If you are still worried, please talk to your trusted veterinarian or reach out to us with your concerns!

​When my puppy reaches 4 months of age can I continue to join PSC?
Once your puppy reaches this age milestone, he or she will no longer be permitted to attend puppy social club meet ups.  However, you will then have the option to join a group obedience class or enroll for private training at a discounted rate! The training never stops with ECA. We never leave our clients hanging!
