As our goods are bespoke, we are unable to accept returns if you order the wrong size or you simply change your mind.
We are confident that if you follow our aftercare instructions your purchase will last at least ten years.* If it requires repair resulting from product failure [i.e. it does not function as intended any more], please return it to us and we’ll be happy to fix it. Please contact us via email prior to sending anything back. We reserve the right to refuse any return at our discretion. If the item is more than 12 months old return postage is at customer’s expense.
*Ten years of normal wear and tear. Damage caused by the dog [or another dog] to either the leather or the hardware is not covered. If you have a dog that is hard on collars we suggest you choose a design that is decorated with brass or aged brass hardware only. If your dog chews through a lead or a collar there is nothing we can do about that. “Working” your dog is not considered normal wear and tear.
As our collars are hand-made please note that, in rare circumstances, they may be up to 1cm smaller or bigger than you specified in your order. As there are six holes on each collar, so long as you measure correctly as per the instructions, it will fit your dog.
As we cater to all neck sizes and each collar is made-to-order, sometimes the distribution of decorations may differ slightly to the product photo on our website.
A note about coloured pyramids
While test driving our coloured pyramids we found that if your Ruthless Leather product receives very gentle use the anodized surface remains intact. If however, it comes into contact with other surfaces (ie lying on concrete, running through the bush, playing biteyface/neck with another dog), the colour wears off the tips of the pyramids quite quickly. There is no refund or return if this happens to your collar.
Ready to Ship/Discounted pieces
These items are all in excellent condition, but some may have minor blemishes or have been worn by other dogs on photoshoots. They are sold as is, there are no refunds or exchanges.
You cannot cancel or modify an order once the checkout process has been completed. If you have made an error please contact us immediately, quoting your order number, to rectify your mistake.
In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed at the incorrect price.
