  • Be supported as a responsible puppy parent

    New pet parents often feel under a lot of pressure to do everything right, to ensure they give their puppy the best of everything, and protect them from health and behaviour problems.

    Our Puppy Prep Program includes a series of lessons to prepare you as a responsible dog owner. From home set-up, training, and transport, all the way to settling your pup in, toileting, and how to socialise your puppy. developed by our Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Imogen.

  • 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.
