New Puppy Contract

Are you considering getting a puppy? Could you benefit from some extra guidance on caring for your new pet?


Raising a puppy is a big step, and you are responsible for looking after the dog throughout the entirety of its lifetime. The Puppy Contract can help you make an informed decision about whether a puppy is right for you, providing much-needed advice on finding a healthy and friendly puppy.


The Puppy Contract, endorsed by the Dogs Trust, PDSA, RSPCA and the Kennel Club, is a free online toolkit which will help you avoid some of the pitfalls that can occur during your puppy's development. It covers the following: identifying signs of ill health, understanding the puppy’s behaviour and determining how comfortable it is around people. Whether your puppy is from a neighbour, a pedigree breeder or a homing organisation, be it free or paid for, the same advice applies to all.
