I've been agonizing over this. Fable is 8 weeks old, and I really, really want to make sure she's properly socialized, especially considering her background and breed (No/minimal socialization combined with badly bred GSDs have never been a good mixture IME). But having had a puppy I never got to bring home because of parvo, I'm paranoid about the illnesses she might contract if I take her to public places. Do I socialize her possibly at the expense of her health? Or do I keep her safe from illness but risk having an unstable, fearful dog? Opinions? Advice? Do I wait until she's had all her vaccinations even though the prime socialization window is closing fast? What do you do with your puppies? I know. Stupid, elementary questions. I've been embarrassed to ask but I need to know what you guys think.
