Doggy Day Care Question

I took Cody to the Vet last Saturday. (Cody is 12 weeks old today.) She told me that I should not take him to doggy day care until he is 6 months old and neutered. She said that we should take him to puppy class but not doggy day care because he will learn bad habits from the other dogs. Has anyone taken their Havanese to doggy day care before 6 months old?

I think you've got a smart vet.

My doggie daycare doesn't even take puppies until 6 months and they recommend 9 months.

Yeah, I would worry about a 6 month old puppy. Maybe you can get a dog walker in the meantime? I am not a fan of large doggy daycares. You might also check out These are smaller daycares in peoples homes. Some only do overnight but others do daycare.

He is adorable!
