Q. Unavoidable! Need to take pup out to sport ground before all vaccinations due to traveling. Advice to limit threat to pups health.

Answered By

A. I'd recommend limiting your puppy's access to any areas that could be contaminated by unknown dogs. A small toy fox terrier can be kept within a kennel or cat carrier for the duration of the time. Do not allow any interaction with other animals. Take outside only to go to the bathroom and then bring back inside or put her back in the crate.
