Please don't have their tails docked. It really is out of fashion, unnecessary and is illegal in many countries. It is usually done by a vet at about 1 to 3 days old, but is traumatic for both the pups and the mother, who hears the screams. As far as I know the first vaccination is at 6 weeks, but please re-post this if you want the vet's advice. The right thing to do is vaccinate them before they go to their new homes at about 8 weeks of age.
