do i have to wait until my puppy has all his shots for the first year before training him for walks?
Before your puppy can safely be taken out to public places (such as city streets, public parks, beaches etc.) he needs to have all three sets of puppy vaccinations.
The Rabies shot is often done at around 16 weeks and it's not necessary to wait for that one before taking him out for walks etc.
Puppies are very susceptible to many contagious illnesses/diseases, including the dreaded Parvo before their vaccinations are complete. It's always better to be safe than sorry.
