Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a guarantee on the durability and long term use of our pet products. We do not make any claims about our products like - Indestructible, or statements such as " This will be the last harness you'll ever buy" as this is unrealistic. As a dog owner, your common sense will tell you that as all dogs are different, no product can ever be completely indestructible or future proof, therefore it is possible that overly-aggressive play or activities can damage/break our products. This includes Jackets , Harnesses and Leads, as excessive pulling or reactivity while walking can cause damage to the product, particularly if your dog is a large heavy breed.
Some dogs find wearing harnesses and collars uncomfortable so will continually scratch at them. This will cause damage and fraying and this is particularly noticeable at the underarm area on harnesses. In this instance we will not be able to offer a refund or replacement if it becomes damaged during use.
If in doubt please contact us before you purchase as we will be more than happy to help advise.
Owners should practise due diligence to decide if our products are suitable for their own dog and their behaviour. Not all of our products are designed to be suitable for all types of breeds and sizes of dogs.
All of our products should only be used under direct supervision and If the product breaks during use or presents any malfunction, cease use immediately.
The Happy Paw Store can not refund any products that have broken during use unless the item arrived damaged in which case this must be reported within 48 hours of receiving the item.
Please use the size charts available for each product and follow instructions on how to choose the correct size via measurements. Please do not assume your dog is a particular size as you previously had a similar product. The sizes for each product refer to the products different size options and not your dogs size. I.E: A Size Medium in a Dog Jacket does not mean its for a Medium size dog.
If damage occurs due to the incorrect size being worn then we cannot issue a refund or exchange. Before removing any tags and using please make sure that the item fits correctly and is not too tight or too loose.
Due to your individual monitor settings some colours may appear slightly different.
Images of items should be used as a guide only as items can come in different sizes and variants.
Please use the item sizes and measurements for a more accurate description.

We take fraud and slander seriously and legal action may be taken against anyone who attempts the above.
