All sales are final. We are unable to accept returns if you order the wrong size or you simply change your mind.

Please refer to our FAQs for warranty details.

As our collars are hand-made please note that, in rare circumstances, they may be up to 1cm smaller or bigger than you specified in your order. As there are multiple holes on each adjustable collar, so long as you measure correctly as per the instructions, it will fit your dog.

While we do our best to only buy hides that are the same colour as our photographed samples, leather colours fluctuate from hide to hide. Your leather wares may not look identical in colour to those pictured – particularly burgundy and chestnut. Feel free to ask to see a sample of our current leather stock before ordering.

We cater to all neck sizes and bespoke collars are made-to-order so sometimes the distribution of decorations may differ slightly to the product photo on our website.

a note about coloured pyramids
While test driving our coloured pyramids we found that if your item receives very gentle use the anodized surface remains intact. If however, it comes into contact with other surfaces (ie lying on concrete, running through the bush, playing biteyface/neck with another dog), the colour wears off the tips of the pyramids quite quickly. There is no refund or return if this happens to your collar.

ready to ship pieces
These items are all in excellent condition, but some may have minor blemishes or have been worn by other dogs on photoshoots. If this is the case the piece will be discounted to reflect that. They are sold as is, there are no refunds or exchanges.

order changes
You cannot cancel an order once the checkout process has been completed. If you have made an error please contact us immediately, quoting your order number, to rectify your mistake.

In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed at the incorrect price.
