    Bec Hurd

    Happy ‘pawrent’ of Archie the Cairn Terrier

    You don’t know what you don’t know. I’ve had dogs before but I learnt so much going through the program; from what gear I needed to how to deal with behaviour problems. They’re things I hadn’t even thought of or things I would’ve thought of too late unless someone told me about it.

    Keeva Stratton

    Happy ‘pawrent’ of Arty the Chow Chow

    Purchasing a puppy is not a small purchase! This is a convenient and secure way to pay - having full transparency and mutual understanding of expectations has been really helpful and reassuring.

    Kate Gyngell

    Happy ‘pawrent’ of Wellington the Golden Retriever

    RightPaw took all the stress and work away, and 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.

  • FAQs

    If you want to pay for your puppy on RightPaw, you can make this known to your breeder via a RightPaw message. Once your breeders send through a puppy offer on RightPaw, you will be able to pay via RightPaw.

    Yes, we charge the puppy purchaser a small fixed fee of $30 to cover the traceability, security and other benefits. This cost allows us to continue running our platform and protecting dogs everywhere. If you decide to pay with credit or debit card, there will be merchant fees associated.

    Paying through RightPaw means we have the visibility and traceability of fund transfers. This means if any issues arise, the RightPaw team is on hand to assist you. You will also be protected by the RightPaw Purchase Policy.

    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 or bank account numbers entered through Stripe are stored within our platform.

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

    No, RightPaw is optional for peace of mind, traceability and security. You can still choose to pay your breeder directly outside of our platform but please note that we can only investigate concerns that relate to activities which have taken place on the RightPaw platform. If payment took place outside of RightPaw, we are unfortunately limited in how much support we can offer.

    You can always email us at support@rightpaw.com.au, and one of our friendly team can assist you.

    If you have paid via RightPaw and would like to cancel the Puppy Sale prior to the Puppy Home Date, we can chase the breeder to refund you the Puppy Fees in full, less the merchant fee and if applicable, any agreed refundable deposit from the breeder. If you have chosen to pay the breeder directly outside of our platform, you would need to discuss this with the breeder and follow their refund terms.

    The Puppy Parent Club is a membership that you can purchase from RightPaw. It includes expert training material, resources and support all in the one place (valued at $550), so you can be confident that your puppy can thrive for just $99.
