I don't see any contraindication to letting Cooper out into the back yard. In fact, it's necessary to do so for proper elimination training. I do want him restricted to the yard, however, until his puppy shots are completed - usually by 16-18 weeks of age. People who come to visit should remove their shoes before entering your home so as not to track in any infectious viruses such as parvovirus. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
