Leaving a Not Fully Inoculated Puppy in the Yard

I have a 10 week old Great Dane. He has had some of his shots, 1 set of parvo and he has the deworming shots. I was wondering if it is OK to leave him out in the back yard while I'm at work (of course with some water?

Parvo lingers in grass longer than you would expect. His system needs time to react to his vaccine. Parvo is a horrible disease. Can you create a barrier and make a small space for him in the house? Get a dog crate, but disinfect a used one with bleach before bringing in house and wash your hands before bringing in house? He's awfully young to leave alone outside. Bear in mind he will be a huge dog and you want him very well socialized so as to train him easily.

Well, he is not going to get sick from other dogs or get worms, but on the other hand, rabies is the scariest issue. I personally would not leave him outside until he has the rabies shot.

The only fully qualfied person to answer this is your Veterinarian. And why did you want any animal when they have to be left on their own for long periods of time. Registered breeders will not allow their pups to hopefully go to their "forever" homes until eight weeks of age.


And to leave a new arrival to the home to it's own devices is not the correct thing to do. And certainly teaches the poor animal nothing except no-body is there for it. Nice that it had water to drink.

Yes of course but make sure it is safe for him staying outside

Also, Great Danes are very intolerant to cold and hot weather. They cannot be left outside for too long in such conditions.
