ORDER PROCESSING

The availability for each item is provided in the product listing.  This is the approximate number of business days it will take before your in stock item(s) ship.  Items will be grouped into the fewest shipments possible; therefore, the shipping date for some items may be extended.  All items are based on availability and the listing on our website is not an indication of stock status.  Some items may be made to order, special ordered or ship directly from the designer and have a longer availability.

Orders with multiple items may arrive in two (2) or more packages.
Business Days are Monday to Friday and do not include weekends or holidays.

See:  order status & delivery for information on viewing the current status of your order and tracking details.

Orders are shipped via USPS, UPS or FedEx. Some items may ship from our NJ location, directly from the designer or our associated warehouse.  In some cases, your items may arrive in separate packages (at no additional cost to you).  Some packages will require a signature at the time of delivery.  Please be sure the carrier has a safe place to leave your package and include any special delivery requirements in your order comments.  We are unable issue refunds for stolen packages after delivery has been confirmed by the carrier.

 

 

 

HELPFUL TIP:   Many returns for sizing can be avoided by taking a quick moment to take current measurements of your dog or cat and by following our sizing guidelines along with the size chart in the product description.  It's best not to guess!  Unlike human apparel, there are no size standards for pet clothes, collars, harnesses and products.  A medium for one designer may be a small or large for another.
