    The vet.

    You know you could actually kill your dog by giving "do it yourself" shots?
    Leave it up to the professionals. Unless the vet told you to do it, which in that case they would have told you where to administer it.

    Sarcoma (cancer) of the injection site is a common enough thing that vets give most shots in the thigh because of it now, in case something develops. A leg can be amputated, but cancer in the neck can not.

    Contact your vet to get info on the right place to do this, you shouldn't be relying on what people on the internet tell you.

    You let the veterinarian do the shot for your dogs; he knows where to shot it. If you are curious on where he will shot it, ask him, but DONT do it on your own.
