Terms and Conditions of using the site
These are the terms & Conditions for The Stylish Dog Company. Placing an order with us simply means that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions, these terms do not supersede your rights under the Sale of Goods Act.
1. Acceptance of Terms & Use of Website
By using The Stylish Dog Company Website you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms & Conditions.
The Stylish Dog Company reserves the right to amend or vary these Terms & Conditions at any time and without notice to the Customer and the Customer’s continued use of the Website and/or ordering Product from the Website shall be deemed to be acceptance of such change.
The Stylish Dog Company may vary any item or part of the Website, including policies, terms and Products. New items may be added. Retail prices may be changed without notice at any time.
2. Ordering Products & Payment
The Customer shall select from the Products advertised on the Website by following the procedure set out on the Website.
An order is deemed concluded once payment has been accepted by The Stylish Dog Company and acceptance of the order is provided to the Customer by an e-mail from The Stylish Dog Company.
The Product Page will clearly outline the delivery details and any other pertinent information relating to the product. All prices charged are inclusive of VAT.
The Stylish Dog Company is not obliged to fulfil any order and The Stylish Dog Company shall, in its sole discretion be permitted to elect not to comply with any order from the Customer.
Payment for Product will be made by credit or debit card via Stripe with whom The Stylish Dog Company has contracted for a secured payment system. Charges are captured immediately due to the nature of a lot of products being handmade (and many bespoke) and sent out by artisans directly.
If for whatever reason, the items are not available we will contact you and arrange a refund or discuss an alternative delivery date.
Authorised payments (not captured immediately, but captured on despatch) are only approved for 7 days and many of our items being handmade to order take longer than that to send out so we have chosen this method of payment as the most efficient option for both customers, our administration and our artisans.
3. A note about online security
Whilst The Stylish Dog Company will use its best endeavours, and has been advised by Stripe, that use of the system is secure, the Customer accepts that The Stylish Dog Company accepts no responsibility or liability for any failure in the secure online payment system.
4. Delivery & Timing
The Stylish Dog Company shall use its best endeavours to deliver Product within the delivery timeframe specified on each Product, clearly highlighted on each Product Page, and earlier if possible. If there is going to be a delay in delivery, The Stylish Dog Company will advise the Customer by email at the earliest opportunity.
In cases where Product is handmade to a Customer’s bespoke requirements, or personalised, there will be a longer delivery timeframe. This will be clearly highlighted at the Product Page so that the Customer can see this before they place their order. If a Product is out of stock then the Website will note that against the Product. However if, due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of The Stylish Dog Company, a Product becomes out of stock after an order has been placed and accepted, then The Stylish Dog Company will inform the Customer by email and give them the option to cancel their order and receive a full refund.
The Customer shall accept part delivery of Product in the event that more than one item is ordered. Products forming part of an order may be delivered separately.
The Stylish Dog Company does not accept any liability for delay, despatch or delivery and cannot be held responsible for delivery at any set time on a particular day.
Coupon codes – newsletter 10% offer
Coupon codes (newsletter offer inclusive) can only be used independent of other codes or offers (unless otherwise stated), such as free delivery.

5. Back Orders
If the Customer orders any Product which is not currently available or in stock, The Stylish Dog Company shall agree an estimated date for delivery which the Customer can either accept or elect to cancel the order.
6. Delivery Charges
UK deliveries only.
Delivery charges stated on the website are for Uk Mainland only. Where there is an additional charge for certain remote areas such as the Highlands or other areas such as Channel Islands or Northern Ireland, The Stylish Dog Company will email the customer to alert them to those additional charges. The customer can then elect to proceed with the order or to cancel for a full refund.
All delivery charges for each individual item are clearly displayed on the product page. We endeavour to keep our delivery charges as low as possible and therefore in most cases you will only be charged one delivery charge which will be clearly displayed at the checkout stage.
For international orders The Stylish Dog Company asks that the customer email us for delivery quotation. Any exportation charges, if incurred, remain the responsibility of the customer.
The Stylish Dog Company arranges its delivery service through different means and service providers. The Customer shall be notified by e-mail once the Product is despatched and the Customer shall be advised of any tracking number if relevant.
If a signature or Customer’s presence is necessary for delivery, it is the Customer’s responsibility to facilitate that by providing the best possible address. Where possible, if specific instructions can be given to facilitate delivery, The Stylish Dog Company will use its best endeavours to facilitate delivery in the manner requested.
With certain items that are handmade to order these may be delivered to the customer directly from the maker on behalf of The Stylish Dog Company.
