What our breeders think of RightPaw
RightPaw has made my life so much easier - I don't have applications coming in from all directions…and I can sort only the highest calibre, serious applicants.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Breeder
Very efficient and effective form of communication... you don't have to filter through emails or worry about people. You get applicant details and their stories at a click!
Labrador Service Dog Breeder
Finding good homes for my puppies is always my no. 1 priority. RightPaw has enabled us to do just that and I felt confident that our pups have gone to the right, fantastic homes! The RightPaw team have been nothing but helpful and the site is extremely easy to use.
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.

Frequently asked questionsTry for free
RightPaw is a website that features trusted and ethical Australian dog breeders, and helps connect them with responsible owners. Being part of RightPaw will help you showcase yourself as a responsible choice for new dog owners, and will give you a beautiful listing per breed to professionally represent your breeding program. Our online platform will also help you easily manage your enquiries and your application process, by allowing you to receive puppy applications in the one place.
Your RightPaw breed listing is a page all about your breeding program, and includes photos as well as information about your breeding practices, the health tests you conduct, expected litter plans and a bit about you as a breeder. Breeders direct their enquiries to their RightPaw listing, so applicants learn more about them, and can submit an application directly on the listing.
Setting up a listing is as simple as creating an account, and answering a few quick questions. A member of our customer service team will contact you, and provide dedicated assistance in helping you build your listing.
Absolutely! All enquiries and applications can be accessed via our RightPaw instant messaging chat, so you can speak to them at any time. You can also still call all your enquiries, to get a feel for them as a potential puppy parent and verify their suitability.
RightPaw will always be free for responsible breeders. We want to encourage all responsible breeders to join, and believe they should be celebrated for the work they do.
We also have an optional Premium version with additional features such as personalised breed questionnaire for puppy applicants, inbox advanced filters and autoresponders for $15 a month, billed annually, although breeders can always choose to remain on the ‘free’ version.
Not at all. Our RightPaw customer service team will be available to set-up your profile and guide you on how to use the website, and will be on-hand to answer any questions you might have along the way. RightPaw has been designed to be simple, intuitive, and time-saving, and that includes learning how to use us!
RightPaw can complement your existing personal website or profile, by helping manage your enquiries and applications when prospective owners need to contact you. Most websites still require owners to email or call you directly, meaning breeders still need to answer (and keep track of) several enquiries a day. With RightPaw, owners can enquire and apply directly on the breeder’s listing, allowing you to keep all your applications in the one place. You can also set-up your existing websites to point to RightPaw to collect your enquiries, so you can manage them more easily.
All breeders who sign-up to RightPaw have a Verification Call with our team, and must meet our independent RightPaw Code of Ethics - developed together with vets and breeders. It will also include verifying health records, breeding practices, and in most cases a virtual home inspection. We also work with the state registered organisations and local councils to verify membership and identification numbers for breeders.
At RightPaw, we believe that responsibility can exist across all breeds - both pure-bred and cross-bred. We want to bring transparency to the whole landscape, and promote great breeders who engage in responsible practices across health, behaviour, socialisation and more. All our breeders are verified independently by our team and against our Code of Ethics, developed by breeders and vets together. We believe it's important to provide this transparency, and help all potential puppy owners on their search. You can read more about our position on this.
Your privacy is important to us - we do not share your health docs, registration papers, address or phone number with anyone. This is paramount to protect the identity of our breeders. RightPaw does not store or process any credit card information. All credit card and bank account information is handled by Stripe, RightPaw's payment gateway. Stripe is a trusted payment processor. That being said, RightPaw takes security issues very seriously and follows best practices to make sure that your data is safe.
