Terms and Conditions

Refunds and Returns

For your complete peace of mind, we guarantee to fully refund any item you are not completely satisfied with. HOWEVER, we do URGE you to make full use of the sizing guides that we make available, as each item from each manufacturer will completely differ in sizing and shape, thus you must know your pooch's measurements to shop completely comfortably and stress free. Please view our easy to use measuring guide here.

With any returns or exchanges, all goods MUST be returned to us here, within 7 days of receipt, in a pristine, unworn and in a completely saleable condition - unsoiled - with ALL tags still attached and all original packaging intact. In order for us to process a return effectively, you must at first contact us with your order number, the item code, and your reasons for a return. We can then also supply you with our returns address. Please note that we cannot take responsibility for any items lost in transit when being returned back to us, thus we fully advise that anything you are returning should be sent recorded and/or with a proof of postage, as this way it is completely covered from A to B and your items are secure.

Palace Of Pooch will refund the complete purchased price of the item(s), excluding all postage and packaging costs should you wish to return the item. This is not the case if the item is faulty... Please see below for the specific guidelines on this.

Palace Of Pooch reserves the right to not refund item(s) that are not returned in a fully re-saleable condition. In this instance you will be notified by email, and the said item will be posted back out to you to your chosen return address.

Unfortunately we are not able to refund or replace seasonal items or any sale stock, unless deemed faulty within the set period.

If making a return/exchange from outside of the UK, then you must correctly complete a customs declaration that states the contents of your parcel are returned items. If this is not completed, then the parcel may incur customs charges for which we are not responsible and will not pay. If costs are levied then the parcel will not be collected and will be returned to sender.

Damaged and Defective Items

On the very rare occasion that you have received a damaged or defective item, then please contact us immediately stating your order number, the item code, and what the fault is, in as much detail as possible (you may be asked for photographic images of the said item fault). You must contact us within 48hrs of receipt of the goods, otherwise your claim may be refused or disregarded.

Where necessary, damaged/defective goods MUST be returned to us exactly as you received them, and very securely packaged and wrapped, along with a copy of the first email you sent to us, stating your order number, the item number, and the items fault. After we receive the item we will examine and test the fault (if needed), and if the product is indeed defective, we will reimburse you fully for the product, and also for the original shipping fee if you only purchased the one item. If you purchased other items within the same transaction, then regrettably we are unable to reimburse the shipping fee, and will only reimburse for the faulty item itself. If you require an exchange on a faulty item - and we have the stock available - you will not be charged again for delivery, we will simply send out the replacement to the given postal address.

We will always reimburse your postage paid for the returned faulty items that you are shipping to us, but only up to the value of the original shipping fee (Please note that this does not affect your statutory rights) - We will also need a receipt/proof of postage to do so for our records.
