Return/Refund Policy and Shipping Policy
Need to make a return or exchange?
Not to worry, we have a 30-Day trial period.
You have 30 days to try our products. If you are not 100% satisfied during the 30-day trial, you can return for a refund (minus shipping) or exchange.
Be sure to check out the FAQ and/or Bark Collar FAQ to help with any troubleshooting questions you may have, but if you need to return, please read over our policy below.
Items must be in usable and re-sellable condition. If the item is still functional, but arrives back to us with any scratches, bites, dirt, strong odors, or hair, a $10 restocking fee will be deducted from your refund.
To avoid this fee, be sure to clean your item thoroughly before shipping.
Products damaged due to chewing/accident, alterations (ie. cut / trimmed collar or labeling collars) missing components (charging cable) or misuse are not eligible for return or replacement.
All returns must be post-dated within 30 days of the delivery date.
Should the return exceed the 30-day window or arrives in extremely used condition, it will not be accepted and a refund, exchange, replacement will be denied.
If you are eligible for a return or exchanged based on our policy you can mail your product to:
C/O Returns Dept.
42309 Winchester Rd
Temecula, CA 92590
Pet Pawsabilities does not provide return labels as returns are a consumer based decision. Return labels are only provided if we have deemed a product as a manufacturing defect.
USPS typically has the most cost effective return shipping rates.
Please do not send returns with the signature required option, this will only delay your return process.
The packing slip/receipt sent with your order is not a return label. No RMA is required. Shipping costs are non-refundable. (Unless for a product defect.)
Be sure to include the following information with your return: Name/Email used for the order, Order Number, Reason for Return or indicate the item you wish to exchange for. You can use a piece of paper, the enclosed packing slip, or a print out of your email confirmation. This will allow for faster processing.
If your package is refused or returned back to us (‘Return to Sender’), you will be responsible for the return shipping costs. Packages refused are subject to additional fees which will be taken out of any eligible refunds after the package is returned to us.
Processing can take 7-14 Days once we receive it.
If you are shipping an item over $75, consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance as we don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
Since we are a small company, please let us know if you experienced any issue with the product. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated and will help us to improve and develop future products.
Please allow 7-14 business days for returns to be processed once it has arrived back to our facility.
If approved, the refund will be returned to the original method of payment within 3-5 business days.
We do have some items that are non-refundable such as Gift Cards and custom items. Other non-refundable charges are paid shipping and donations made at checkout (may appear as ‘Tip’).
LATE OR MISSING REFUNDS
If it has surpassed 5 business days since your return was processed and you have not seen an email notification regarding its status, be sure to check your Junk/SPAM folder as these messages can sometimes end up there.
Should no message be found or you are not seeing the funds returned to the original method of payment by the 5th business day, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to verify the refund has been processed.
We do accept exchanges within 30 days of delivery.
If you believe your item has a defect and in need of replacement, please review the Bark Collar FAQ for troubleshooting or contact us at email@example.com
We cannot accept exchanges if the item has been damaged due to chewing, accident, misuse, or alterations or if the item has been returned in such conditions.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org within 5 days of receiving your order. If the package appears tampered with, we encourage you to also submit a claim with the carrier.
Verify the packing slip which will list all items enclosed in your package/order. Should any items listed be missing from the package when contacting us please include photo verification of the following: packing slip, all contents from the package, and the shipping label.
We do ask to be notified immediately of any potential missing items. Should the order delivery date surpass 5 days and we have not received the verification requested, we will assume the order was received in accordance to our records and therefore we will be unable to offer any sort of compensation.
Does your item appear defective? Visit Bark Collar FAQ for troubleshooting. If the collar is still unresponsive and within the 30-day trial period, please contact Customer Support at email@example.com to see about a replacement.
Products damaged due to chewing/accident, alterations or misuse are not eligible for return or replacement.
We will ask for visual confirmation (photos or videos). Video confirmations can be 10-30 seconds and of the testing steps being demonstrated. Please submit photos/videos as an attachment (JPEG, PNG, MOV, PDF). DO NOT send links as these will not be opened or accepted.
Once confirmation is received, our support team can review and move forward with submitting an order for replacement. Should your request or confirmation be received after the 30-day trial period, it will be ineligible for a replacement.
