We encourage you to measure your pet as accurately as possible, many of our items are custom ordered and cannot be returned. As the return policies vary for each designer that we carry, if an item is not eligible for return/exchange or if shipping times are lengthy, it will be posted in the item description. If you are unsure, it is best to contact us in advance to find out if the item you wish to purchase is eligible for exchange/return. In the event that an item is eligible for exchange/return, here are the guidelines that we follow:

1. For items that are eligible, return/exchange requests must be made within 10 days of receipt of order. All returns/exchanges require a prior Return Authorization from, no exceptions will be made. 
2. All returns/exchanges must be in original packaging, unused and in saleable condition. We are not responsible for any damage that is caused by your dog to any of the merchandise. We cannot honor returns or exchanges for any merchandise that has been used or is not in its original new condition.
3. If an item arrives damaged or defective you must contact us within 48 hours of receipt. If the box appears damaged upon receipt, do not sign for or accept it and it will be returned to us. We will send an exchange or credit you for the item.
4. You must contact us within 30 days of order placement if your item has not arrived. We will not be held responsible for notifications after that time.
5. For the first exchange of an item, you pay shipping/handling charges for the exchange. If a second exchange is necessary, a $12 handling fee will be applied, as well as the shipping/handling charges for the exchange.

11. If you have been given an RA#, for your security, please return your items with an insured courier (e.g., FedEx, UPS, USPS Priority Mail) and retain your receipt. Please be advised that until there is proof that we have received your merchandise, it is your property. Bitch New York is not responsible for items damaged or lost in transit. Items returned through the U.S. Mail using only insurance without delivery confirmation can be lost in transit. Insurance by itself does not provide proof of delivery. If an insured item becomes lost, it is the customers responsibility to file a claim with the Post Office to recover their loss for their merchandise. Insurance with the post office is a transaction between the individual and the United States Postal Service, and is not affiliated with Bitch New York.
