    I will be the proud owner of a Golden Retriever puppy in 2 weeks time, and when I collect her from the breeder she will be 7 weeks old.
    However I am a bit confused about whether or not I can take her into the garden, or does she have to be 8 weeks old or 12 weeks old before I can do this.
    Any advice on this would be most welcome.
    Thank you

    Unless you have a problem with rats or unvaccinated dogs in the garden, take her out - the sooner you start toilet training the better (if you need advice on that, please ask).

    You should also take her out and about in a carrier, a sling, or even in your arms before her vaccinations to start building her experience of the world from a safe place. As long as she isn't on the ground she will be perfectly safe.
