Common Questions

Is a puppy outgrowing his collar covered?
Absolutely. We love watching your pup grow up, and because our products are designed to be rebuilt, we're able to swap out the rope when your pup outgrows it. 

Is chewing covered under warranty?
Sure is. We know dogs can surprise us with creative ways of destroying your favorite things. We built our products to be repaired and reuse the clamps & clip, but if they've somehow managed to destroy the whole thing, we'll replace your item for life. 

How do I process a repair or exchange?
All repairs are processed through our Repairs & Return form. We'll cover postage to ship the repaired gear back to you, but you'll have to cover postage on items more than 30 days old. 

How long does a repair or exchange take?
We do our best to process repairs and exchanges within a week of receiving them. 

What do I send back with my warranty repair item?
In order for us to process your repair as soon as possible, we ask that you include your order number and return address with your item. If you're repairing a collar, also include your collar size.

Does the Lifetime Collar fit small dogs?
The Lifetime Collar was designed with larger dogs in mind and might seem bulkier on dogs under 15lbs. We know adventure pups come in all sizes, and hope to have a solution for smaller dogs in the near future! 

What size would be better for X breed pup that's Y months old? 
We recommend measuring your existing collar to figure out the best size for your pup. Because the collar is designed to slip over your dog's head, be sure to add some length so it's still comfortable to slip on. The collar is designed to sit a little looser on their neck, so if you think they're between sizes, chose the larger size. 

Can the collar be used without a harness?
Because our collars are a fixed length and designed to fit a little looser, they'll be able to wiggle out of it if they're determined enough. In order to keep your best friend by your side, we recommend only using the collar for tags, lights, and other accessories, and using a harness to secure your dog. 

Can we make a traffic lead with two handles?
If you want a second handle on your leash, we suggest using our 8' leash and tying an Overhand Loop at the desired length. Because our leashes are made from premium climbing rope, they're literally designed to be tied into knots, and wont interfere the strength or durability of the rope. 

Can we make custom length collars & leashes?
Unfortunately we're unable to make custom length leashes and collars.

Do we sell to resellers/distributors?
Because of our unique warranty, we're focusing on working directly with customers at the moment in order to create the best possible experience for our customers. 

How do I clean my gear?
We know dogs can get into all sorts of dirty situations! We recommend using a mild dish detergent like Dawn in a warm bath of water, but there are also specific cleaners for climbing rope that work very well. Let your leash dry by hanging over the shower, but avoid hanging it in direct sunlight. Since we only use premium climbing rope, here's a short video from our friends at REI on how they wash rope. 

Do you offer slip leads?
Everything we offer is listed on our site. 🙂

How long until I get my gear after I've made a new order?
We're still a small operation and a long way from Amazon-style logistics. We process orders twice a week, so sometimes it goes out the same day, and sometimes it can take a few days after you've placed your order. We appreciate your patience, but if it seems like it's taking longer than it should, feel free to reach out to and we're happy to look into it!

I lost the collar/leash after it got severely broken, can I get a refund/repair from it?
Because we reuse as much of the existing gear as possible, you'll need to send back something in order for us to try to repair it. If it looks like nothing can be salvaged, we'll send you a replacement, but in order to prevent abuse of our incredibly liberal return policy, we require all warranty repairs to start with a package from you.
