The people of Pittwater really love their dogs and they encourage us to get out and about enjoying our beautiful environment. Walking your dog is great socially for yourself and your pet, as there is always something to chat about with another dog owner. Dogs enrich their owner’s lives and there is nothing better than coming home at the end of a long day, to a happy waggy tail!

Choosing a Dog

Everyone is different and so are dogs. The right dog might change for you depending on where you live, your time and life and how much time you can devote to your pet. Once you have chosen your new pet the first thing you should do is book a Free Puppy Check. We want you to start with the right advice so you can have the best chance of really enjoyable pet ownership. Book Online

What to do with a new puppy?

When you have chosen a puppy who is hopefully healthy and has a beautiful temperament, it is important to set your new pup up for success.

The first night home:

Puppy Health Check:

At Pittwater Animal Hospital we offer a free new puppy check where we examine your new pet carefully for any health problems, review their vaccinations and preventative health treatments and recommend a treatment and feeding schedule tailored to your individual pet. Puppies are so different depending on their breed, age and temperament. 6 week old pups often sleep for hours with small bursts of activity, whereas 16 week old puppies are full of energy and need plenty of activity and lots of good food. Contact us to book a free puppy health check.

Our puppy classes can teach you how to relate to your new pet, to create a positive bond between you and your dog. We try to encourage good behavior and distract from behavior we don’t want to develop. Our aim in these classes is to help your dog become as confident and settled as possible and we know that a little bit of effort at this age can reap years of reward and excellent companionship.

Pet Insurance

At Pittwater Animal Hospital we can claim most insurance claims on-line so it is a very easy process for you.

Preventative Health Review

At Pittwater Animal Hospital, we have been treating your pets on the Northern Beaches for over 50 years. We know what works best to keep your pet healthy and happy.

With the Preventative Health Review you will get a reminder for a yearly health check and vaccination via text message to your mobile phone or we can arrange to email or send a letter if you prefer.
