  • Why we created RightPaw

    Created by vets and breeders, RightPaw is here to improve animal welfare from the very beginning.

    “Many health, behaviour and welfare problems can be avoided by ensuring responsible ownership from the beginning. We truly believe that educating the public about responsible ownership and working with responsible breeders is where we can effect the most change and make the biggest difference for animal welfare.”

  • Happy forever homes

    RightPaw took all the stress and work away both in terms of finding responsible breeders and which amongst them were due to have puppies available. RightPaw also provided us with some incredibly helpful information on getting off to the proper start with everything from crate and toilet training to what to look for in a puppy school. I would highly recommend RightPaw to anyone searching for the right puppy and the right breeder.
