Sniffing Can Make Your Dog Feel More Tired.

Dog's can catch Parvo whenever they come into direct contact with the virus, not just the infected dog. The virus is hearty and can live on an infected dog, on a person's shoe, on a rug, in a contaminated lawn, in a snow pile, in a kennel carrier, on a dog bed, at a dog wash, and the list goes on.
Even trace amounts of feces from an infected dog may harbor the virus and infect other dogs that come into the infected environment. The virus is readily transmitted from place to place on the hair or feet of dogs or via contaminated cages, shoes, or other objects. Tank, a parvovirus survivor.
