More socialisation opportunities are train and bus stations, going for a ride on the bus/train. Pet shops and camping shops usually allow dogs in so you could also visit those.
Oh really? Was not aware that it was a nasal application, does not sound nice for them I must admit. I've had dogs in the past but always had injections for KC, that must have changed! Although probably was about 10 years ago, ha!
To be honest we are going away in Sept and Graham is staying at a relatives, do you think it is wise to postpone it if I ever need to do it? Vets came across as though it is absolutely necessary, even if they are not staying in Kennels anytime soon.

Never thought about trains/buses really as I never go on them myself! Pet shops are a good one though, I do need to build up my muscles though as I struggle holding him! Will need to pick a day where i'll have some assisted manpower
