I only do core vaccines for puppies, followed by Rabies as required by law and titers for Parvo and Distemper.
Lepto vaccine does not protect against all strains, nor is it completely effective. To limit the chance of exposure, I never EVER let my dogs drink out of puddles or standing water outdoors. i bring water from home for them on EVERY walk, and offer it often, so they are not tempted. Lepto is a very treatable disease if caught early. I just don't take chances. If my dog appears sick, I don't waste time, I take him or her to the vet immediately.
