Announcement    Walk in the Bark is a Canadian business that is run both in Kitchener, ON (Canada) and Jupiter, FL (USA) depending on the time of year. If you have any questions about our location or shipping please don't hesitate to ask. All prices are in Canadian Dollar and the shipping costs will fluctuate throughout the year depending where we are based!

Walk in the Bark is about creating more than just an accessory for your pet. We believe dogs are more than pets and their collars are more than just a device you use to walk them.

Invite us to create fashionable collars, leashes, and more for you and your beloved cat or dog and you will be ecstatic with the quality products we hand craft. Our products are of the highest quality - by using 100% cotton fabrics, nickel and brass plated metal hardware, high quality thread and sewn on an industrial strength sewing machine. What sets us apart from other dog collar creators is the material we use. We sew our stylish cotton fabrics over a strong nylon webbing, which is our recipe for creating style without sacrificing strength and durability.

Thought goes into every detail from planning our collections and staying on top of trends, carefully sewing each collar with precision, coming up with new products to offer, and packaging up orders with beautifully designed care instructions tied up nicely in a burlap bag.

About WalkintheBark

Let's take a Walk in the Bark together...

Walk in the Bark is the dream I never knew I had. Through high school, college, and a even a few years after college I couldn't figure out what my calling was. I had wandered through ideas of being a veterinarian, a realtor, and even a marine biologist (who was I kidding?!)

Eventually, after 25 years of wishing for a dog of my own, I finally did the research and brought home my beautiful Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Decker (who is now 3!). He inspired me to not only revolve my personal life around him, but also my professional one as well.

It started with a dog walking and pet sitting business that I opened, also named Walk in the Bark, which is still growing and developing in Kitchener, ON. When I wanted to add another aspect to my business I thought creating dog collars and accessories would be such a fun and creative way to expand my business! I have always loved being creative and making things with my own hands. I am a strong believer in #shopsmall and supporting the people who dedicate so much of their time to their craft, and I'm so proud to be part of that community.

I am so glad that I have begun this journey and can showcase my #maker side in a job that I love and am incredibly passionate about. I eat, sleep, and breathe Walk in the Bark and I thank my lucky stars I have the opportunity to build it from the ground up. Also - it feels so amazing to have most of my life revolve around man/girls best friend!

Hello!

Thank you for checking out Walk in the Bark. I hope you find everything you are looking for, and if not - please contact me and we will work on something together. It is extremely important to me that every single one of my customers leaves happy with a product they absolutely love. I take great pride in my work, and happy customers are vital for me to feel good about my shop and continue working.

Please read the policies below, and if you have any further questions don't be shy!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
The most important thing to me is to have happy customers. Each item I make is custom made for you, based off of the specific sizes and styles you select. Therefore, I cannot return orders. If you accidentally order the wrong size, we can discuss an exchange of a new size if possible.

If however, you receive a collar that is damaged, or incorrect, I will be more than happy to correct this as soon as humanly possible.

As a small business, there is a lot of competition against large companies selling collars in mass quantities for cheaper prices. I understand and appreciate that you are choosing to #shopsmall and support people like me who are trying to make it on their own. I would not be successful if I didn't care greatly about your happiness in the product you purchase, and therefore do everything I can to ensure you are over the moon about your purchase!
Payment
Payment is required when an order is placed and before I start working on a project simply because each item I make is custom for each person in the size and style.

Payment can be made via etsy gift card, paypal, or credit card.
Shipping
Orders are shipped VIA USPS while we work in our US office, and Canada Post when we work in our Canada office.

For shipping time estimates please shoot me a message and I'd be happy to answer!

Growing Puppy?

I would love to help you with a Puppy Collar by sizing out a collar that will fit now, and as the puppy grows. Please send me a message with the age, breed and weight of your dog and I will assist you as best as I can.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom Orders:

I would love working with you on a custom order. For example, if you are looking for certain colours or designs of fabric you don't see in the shop, I'd love to help you create one. If your pup is a sports fan and wants a team collar or bandana, let me know! Finally - I get many requests to make bandanas out of fabrics we have currently listed as collars. I can do this provided I have enough fabric left so just let me know!

Personalized Orders:

We personalize collars by having them engraved with whatever you'd like on them (www.etsy.com/ca/listing/228962495). Simply add this to your cart with the collar or harness of your choice and let me know what you'd like engraved on the buckle!

Care instructions

Every collar, leash and harness comes with simple care instructions as to how to care and clean your purchase.

Wholesale availability

We would love to provide your pet store, dog training facility or online shop with Walk in the Bark product! Simply send me an email to info@walkinthebark.ca and I will send you our wholesale pricing and we will discuss your order.
