    Nope! I don't mind at all! Kinda a dead thread anyway.

    All I can really think of is that you avoid the fines and can take them to places requiring registration.

      Depends on where you're taking the dog or doing with him. I board Ferg a lot for the day while traveling, and have to prove he's had all his shots. Obedience classes, shows, etc can and will ask for proof. I believe you have to have proof of shots to get a CGC too, but maybe I'm thinking of AKC Star Puppy.

        Evaluators do not need proof of vaccines for either the CGC or the STAR puppy.

          I was told by the elvaluator you need proof of Rabies and proof of dog liscence for TDI test.

I told him I was waiting because I had read several articles online that suggested that you shouldn't give them all their vaccines so young.

            He told me it was all BS and that I should always talk to him before deciding because he knew best and everyone on the internet was misinformed. I however do not believe that vets are right 100% of the time and the internet can be a very useful tool!

            Do you have any articles you've read or can you explain yourself why it's a bad idea to give them so many? Also which ones did you give your Danes? I really just want to do what's best for Bentley. Thank you for your time.

              You do for TDI but not for CGC or Puppy Star.

                I am very sure that your vet got information on vaccines & over vaccinating. It has been written in many vet articles. Some vets just turn a blind eye to it. Dr Dodds & Dr Ron Schultz among many others info on vaccines, over vaccinating and not doing too many vaccines at once are all out there and have been shared with vets. Also there have been many conferences & seminars on this very thing for vets all over the country. I have attended a couple along with staff & the vets I work for. All the vet schools recommend Dr Dodds protocol.
