It just depends on the dog. Some pups, like Django above, have issues with shots. Ceylon on the other hand has never had trouble with any of his shots, and yes, he had the full puppy round of DHPP shots. I did take care to give him his rabies vaccination at least 3 weeks apart from his other shots, and, I didn't get him the lepto vaccination, but again, he seems to be fine with his shots - it really just depends on the dog, and unfortunately, as far as I know, just like with kids, there is no foolproof way to know ahead of time what will and won't work until you try it. IF you do give vaccinations, I would just watch it very carefully afterwards for any sign of a bad reaction, since the reactions I believe can get worse with each additional shot. And obviously, if your dog has a bad reaction, it is probably time to titer rather than to vaccinate.
(I am no expert, but I did a lot of research on kid's vaccinations when my daughter was small... I am not opposed to vaccinations, obviously, but I do think it pays to be cautious!)
Jean Dodd has a recommended schedule for dog vaccinations but I don't remember offhand what the link is - I am sure somebody here (Dave?
) can give it to you
