8 weeks for it to be worth anything... unless mom wasn't vaccinated, then they should be vaccinated sooner.

The clinic I worked at (in a heavy parvo area) did 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 weeks, or if the person acquired the dog at 8 weeks we would do 8, 11, 14, and 17 weeks. Rabies was at 12-15 weeks. Since vaccination schedules depend on your area, the brand of vaccine, and your vet's preference, I would advise just asking the vet you're planning on using.

This is the protocol we use here too.

8, 12, 16 weeks for DAPP
12, 16 weeks for Lepto (if being given)
16 weeks for Rabies

Protocols can differ depending where you live, so check with your vet!
