Hello, thank you for using this site to help you with your problem. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years and am trained in pet first aid for aiding animals in disasters Parvo can live in soil for many years so when you bring the dog out into the public you risk the dog getting parvo. It is best to keep the dog in your own yard until all shots are given.
