Refund and Exchange policy
Thank you for your interest in Dogness products.
We want you to enjoy your new purchase. However, if you need to return an item, we’re here to help. Please be aware of shipping limitations, returns, and warranty policy when ordering our product(s).
1. The product(s) ordered by you, the Customer, will be delivered to the address you provided at the time of your order. We can not ship to Post Office Boxes (P.O. Boxes), freight forwarders, warehouses, distribution centers, airports or hotels.
2. We cannot ship to a different country other than your billing address or the mailing address on your order - which is either your home address or business address.
3.We are not responsible for delays caused by carriers that may also delay delivery times.
The following may result in delayed shipping or delivery:
- Incorrect shipping address.
- Canceling items, combining orders or changing a shipping address
- Carrier’s failure to deliver (e.g., blockage, civil commotions, riots, mobilization, strikes, lockouts, natural disaster outside human control - severe weather, plague or other epidemics, tornado, storm, hurricane - or any other cause beyond the seller's or carrier's control.)
- Customs clearance procedures.
4. Customers are responsible for all customs fees, duties, VAT, import taxes, special delivery fees, and brokerage fees administered by their government. These fees are not included in the cost of shipping or handling of your order, and we are unable to estimate the fees or costs for you nor are we liable to pay those on your behalf.
Please check with your local customs agency for details on estimated costs. Customs, duties, and taxes are non-refundable, so if you refuse the shipment because of unexpected import fees, the value of the original shipping, any brokerage/customs/duty/taxes, and any return shipping charges will not be refunded.
1 Year Limited Warranty
DOGNESS offers a one (1) year limited warranty for our Smart products. Please contact customer service at 833-364-6377 for details.
DOGNESS warrants that your product will be free of defects in materials or workmanship under normal and proper use for one year from the original date of purchase or if sold online, the date of delivery. DOGNESS will, at its own discretion and expense, repair or replace the product, as long as valid proof of purchase is provided within the qualifying period.
If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received within the Warranty Period, DOGNESS, at its own discretion will either:
(1) repair the hardware defect at no charge, using new or refurbished replacement parts, or
(2) replace the product with a reconditioned/refurbished product or with a product that is new or that has been manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product.
Replacement DOGNESS products carry a non-transferrable warranty for the remainder of the original warranty period.
DOGNESS will cover the return shipping cost for authorized returns but the purchaser may be responsible for the costs of shipping the product to our return center depending on the origin address - DOGNESS will provide the nearest return center address or within the closest region.
The country of origin of the DOGNESS product that is due for return has to be the delivery address of the original order. Otherwise, the customer has to pay the return shipping fee.
Below is the return center address for DOGNESS products:
DOGNESS Group LLC
4116 W Spring Creek Pkwy, Suite 100
DOGNESS may request that you replace defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts (e.g. USB cord, wall plugs, lid) that DOGNESS provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. A replacement product or part, including a user-installable part that has been installed by instructions provided by DOGNESS, assumes the remaining warranty of the original product or thirty (30) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes DOGNESS property.
Parts provided by DOGNESS in fulfillment of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which the warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is provided must be returned to DOGNESS and becomes DOGNESS property.
