Sales Policy


Product Turn Around:
All products directly created by The Pet Atelier are handcrafted including our collars and leads and as such require a 5 - 15 day turn around prior to shipping. Under most circumstances, this is not the case and products will generally be shipped within a few days, although this is not guaranteed.

Products from third party suppliers including apparel, grooming products, bandanas and dog treats are shipped directly from the supplier's warehouse/place of business and as such may take up to 20 days to arrive at the final location.
We process all orders within 24 hours of an order being placed via our store, the fulfilment of third party products is then the responsibility of the third party supplier.

Product Warranty:
All of the products created by The Pet Atelier (collars and leads) come with a one (1) year limited warranty. Products will only be exchanged within this time period if the product is faulty due to manufacturing reasons only. Faults do not include wear and tear of a product's use by the end user. Should a product be faulty, a replacement of the same, or similar product will be supplied to the purchaser upon The Pet Atelier recieving the faulty product. Returns come at the expense of the end user, not The Pet Atelier.

Please take into account that these products are made from leather, and as such, variations in colour and texture are a normal part of our product production.
Please be aware that this is a normal factor when working with leather.

Third party products not manufactured by The Pet Atelier are not covered by a warranty.
