Designer Custom Handmade Dog Collars Harnesses Leashes
DoggieCustomCouture's Shop Policies
I love the creations that I make. I make all of them with high quality items. All items are made as if they were for myself , my dogs and my family. Also, please check out my items on Ebay; http://www.ebay.com/sch/sugarandspicekidz/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686
I make and ship out orders to my customers in the order they are received. If I have the item/s already completed I will ship the item/s out usually within 48 hours.
You may have noticed that I do not charge the same price for the different sizes. Although this costs me more in fees for all the extra listings, I feel it is only fair if you are purchasing a size xs, you should not have to pay the price of a size large. This save you money and you are only paying for the size you actually need.
When I make a dog collar to fill an order, it may take 1-10 days depending how many orders I have before I complete your item/s. When I complete a step in harness it takes longer as there is 5 times the cutting, ironing and sewing to complete each harness. Larger orders and Custom orders do take longer to complete. I have also added our New Handmade hand sewn fabric flowers and bow ties. Please allow extra time for these to be hand made for your order. When there are a lot or orders it can take two to four weeks to make; again depending on how many orders are before your order, so please order early. My goal is to completed your quality item as soon as possible.
Buttons on the ribbon bows and bow ties... The buttons are made with the same fabric as the dog collars. Buttons may vary from one ribbon bow/bow tie as I use the fabric to make the buttons.. All of them are cute and will match the dog collar!
"In Stock" terminology used by Etsy will let you know that I have the fabric in stock to complete your order 99.99% of the time. Should I start to get low on fabric you may see the word "Limited" in the listings. This will let the buyers know that I am running out of this fabric and the fabric is no longer in productions. (This also applies for ribbon bows and bow ties and fabric flowers and fabric bow ties.) Should I suddenly get a lot of sales on the limited fabric, I could run short to fill an order and I would let you know right away, although this has never happened as I do take inventory when I create the listings. I would contact you right away and another fabric can be picked or a completed refund would be issued. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Shipping Delays: Any delays will be posted in this section...Once in a great while there my be a shipping delay. That information is posted here in this section. Most delays would be noted if I am on a buying trip, vacation, or when we are in a heavy sales time of the year.

Additional Policies and FAQs
To Wash your collar: Please remove the bow or bow tie before washing the collar or harness. I just put mine in the kitchen sink with a little Dawn
detergent. Swish it around and it if is really dirty, let it soap for 10-20 min.
Rinse with clear water and lay flat to dry.
All Ribbon Bows and Ribbon Bow Ties are individually made one by one. I have added elastic bands to attach the bows so you can take the bows on and off, and also move the bow or bow tie on the dog collar to the area you prefer.. Extra bands are sent with each order along with the instructions on how to put the new bands on the ribbon bows and ribbon bow ties.
Fabric Flowers and Bow Ties are held on with a loop over Velcro. They do take longer to make, especially with the hand sewing. The Fabric Flowers have 6 petals that are all hand sewn together.
Please check the item when you put this back on your dog as you may need to
adjust the size. It is always a good practice to check the fit often. I check mine daily when I am playing with my dog.
Harnesses are used to give you and your dog a comfortable walk. When returning home it is suggested that the harness is removed. Please remember puppies and some dogs love to chew, so this might be another good reason to remove the harness when you return home.
Please check your item often, I check mine daily. Like with any
handmade fabric item it can wear over time, so please check the item often. Doggie Custom Couture (or Sugarandspicekidz) and the owners are not responsible for any injury or loss caused by any use of this item or any item purchased. They buyer assumes all responsibility.
