Are you considering welcoming a dog to your family?
When considering or preparing for the addition of a new puppy or dog to your family we can offer support to help you make the right choices. Giving your dog the best start as a member of your family begins from the moment you decide you’d like to introduce a dog into your home. Potter Paws will be with you every step of the way to advise and assist as you start you and your dog’s journey on the right path through your lives together.
Having a proactive approach to dog-parenting ensures your dog has the best opportunity to become the best family member he can be.
