    RightPaw gave me so much confidence. Even though I wasn’t able to meet my breeder face-to-face, I felt confident in proceeding because of the high level of vetting RightPaw completes for you.

    If you want to pay through RightPaw, you can request this through your breeder when the time comes to pay for your pup.

    Puppy Parent Support is our way of ensuring all pups have the best possible start in life. We charge a small additional fee (approximately 5%, plus merchant fees) to cover these benefits, which allow us to continue running our platform and protecting dogs everywhere.

    Legally in Australia, puppies cannot be sold until 8 weeks of age. Every breeder offers their pups anywhere between first week of the pups being born to week 6 or 7. Whichever week it is that you pay the breeder, RightPaw holds your money securely in a virtual bank account on Stripe - RightPaw's selected payment merchant. Your money is only released 1-2 business days before the date the puppy leaves the breeder (Puppy Home Date).

    We take the security of our customer's information very seriously. We chose to use the most stringent security payment merchant to protect your credit or debit card information. That's why RightPaw uses Stripe as the payment merchant. No credit card details are stored within our platform.

    You can pay securely online over Stripe with one of the following payment methods: debit card, credit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

    If the Puppy Sale is cancelled by you prior to the Puppy Home Date, we will refund you the Puppy Fees in full (including our RightPaw Protection & Support Fee), less 1.75% merchant fee and if applicable, any agreed non-refundable deposit from the breeder.

    Developed by Dr. Imogen, RightPaw's Chief Veterinary Officer, the RightPaw Puppy Prep Program is designed to support you with the latest pet parenting expertise. The curated training program is delivered in bite-sizes across 2 months through your RightPaw messages with the breeder. As part of the program, we also send puppy milestone reminders throughout the first year of your puppy's life including vaccination and worming reminders.
