I do the puppy boosters, with the last one at 16 weeks, rabies at 6 months and then every 3 years. Adults are boostered at most every 3 years. I'm on the fence about the Lyme vaccination. I do lepto because it is a serious issue where I live.
I give Ivermectin every 35-40 days April-November.
I feel it is much too risky not to do any vaccinations, although I think titering is an alternative that many are comfortable with.
Many of my longest-lived dogs were given annual vaccinations, and lived anywhere from 13-17 years. I definitely do not recommend that anymore though.
