Terms of Sale

All sales are final, few exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. By purchasing our product you, the buyer, assume all risks associated with the use of these goods, whether used alone or in combination with other products. You acknowledge and agree to receive any combination of our items listed at the bottom of this page.

If we make a mistake with your box, we will make it right! Box changes and cancellation requests must be made at least 24 hours before your box renews (see below). If your cancel request was received timely and we inadvertently ship a box out to you, you must refuse the package upon delivery and return to sender. When you write "Return to Sender" on an unopened package, the postal carrier will return the package to us at no additional cost to you. We will apply a full credit to your account upon receiving the box back unopened, with all items in its original packaging. If the box has been opened, you may keep the box and a 50% credit off the original purchase will be applied to your account or you may return the box to us (postal fees not covered).

If a mistake is made on our end regarding the contents of your box (missed restriction, box change, etc.), you must notify us as soon as possible, and within 30 days of receipt, so that we may resend or replace the contents correctly.

You must request changes 24 hours before your box renews. If there is a user-end error made with the order, (i.e., you did not cancel on time, you forgot to switch your box before it renewed), you may choose to keep the box for its full price or return to sender. When you write "Return to Sender" on an unopened package, the postal carrier will return the package to us at no additional cost to you. In the case of the user-end error, we will apply a partial credit to your account upon receiving the box back unopened, with all items in its original packaging, for the amount paid minus the cost of shipping. If the box has been opened, you must cover the cost of a replacement box and the shipping fee which varies among box sizes and weights.

Our Satisfaction Guarantee
We promise to replace the items that your dog does not care for in your box. You must contact us within 60 days of receiving your box in order to receive a replacement in your next box. We will also add that item to your Do Not Send List so that you won't receive it in the future! If we send you replacement items and your dog does not like those, we do not offer the option to replace those again.

We do not use any chemicals or preservatives on our fresh treats and chews. If you find that any of your treats or chews have developed mold, you have up to 30 days since the day your box has been delivered to receive a free replacement from us. 

New Member Boxes
Each month we make a new combination of treats and chews to ensure your pup's nutritional diversity. Unfortunately, should we get an influx of new members signing up, we cannot ensure the same combination we've published on social media, but we do promise to get your first box out as soon as possible with the best nutritional variety we can offer. If we do need to replace a certain item, we'll always offer a comparable replacement for that month. We are an incredibly small company and sourcing is one of our biggest challenges. Thank you for understanding.

When you sign-up with a referral link or username, we'll send a free bag of treats your way! We can honor referrals for up to 30 days. If you sign up for your first box, but forget to send your referer's information our way, that's OK! You'll be notified your subscription is renewing (28 days later), and you'll have 2 more days to notify us.

Cancellation of Service
We have zero commitments. You can skip a box, switch a box or cancel anytime after receiving your first shipment. You must request to cancel your box at least 24 hours before your box renewal. We make every box fresh to order and as soon as your box renews, we are preparing your box for shipment, and it's important that we receive your request to cancel before your box renews. Cancel directly within your account or via our member service text line 858-348-5954 and we will get back to you within 24 hours. 

If a request to cancel is received after your box renews, we will do our best to pull your order from shipping but we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so. Consistent with our general Terms of Sale above, the buyer will be responsible for any shipping costs associated with returning the product.

It's our policy that we wait until you receive your first box to cancel your subscription because we want you to be able to try your first box to see just how beneficial these air-dried treats are as an addition to your dogs' diet! We are a small team with limited resources and a big mission! 

If you decide it is not the best decision for your pup or that there's something else better for your pup out there, we can cancel your box after you get your first shipment. Otherwise, I'd be happy to cancel it now for you and refund your payment.

Making Changes
You may make changes anytime to your box 24 hours before your box renews. With every box renewal, your payment confirmation email indicates when your next box will be shipped. If you'd like to make any changes to that box, including skipping that box, you must notify our Member Service Team 24 hours before it renews. If your box renews and you want to skip it after it's been charged, you will receive a credit to your account to go towards your next box. You may reach us by TEXT or email 858-348-5954 or email help@real.dog.

Terms of Shipping
We ship your box out 1-2 days after you place your order. You will receive your tracking number at the email used when signing up for your account. If you have not received your shipping confirmation email within 5 days of placing your order, please do not hesitate to TEXT our member service team 858-348-5954 or email help@real.dog. We will inform you of any delays on our part.

How Shipping is Calculated

When your box is scheduled to renew, our system calculates the total weight of your box (based on what you ordered and the specific items in that box menu, including any restrictions); that weight is input into our shipping software, and the total then posts an invoice your account. All shipments within the US are generally between $7-$13 per box. Larger orders or heavier weights will cost more but will be discounted through our bulk pricing shipping carrier. If you order the same box each month, you can expect your total to be nearly the same every month. Secretshop orders will vary in weight - the shipping total is calculated and presented at checkout before payment. With the Real Dog Membership $13/month, all secretshop shipments are free.
