Our company handcrafts all products within 6 weeks. Oftentimes, orders process faster than that but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time at all times of the year. If your order cannot be completed as it was received due to materials and/or colors being out of stock, you will be contacted by email for further direction. Often, there is the option to either 1) wait for the chosen materials to arrive at the studio; or 2) change one or more aspects of your order to materials/colors that are in stock to receive your order faster. 

Please see our store banner at the top of the site for current processing times at the time of ordering. This is an estimate and is subject to change on a regular basis as supply levels and order volume changes.

Made to Order vs. Pre-Made

Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.

Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take up to 6 weeks to be created for you depending on order volumes and supply levels.

Look for the “ready to ship” terminology on an image or description if a product is ready for shipment immediately.



The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order. Customers are responsible for ensuring the information on an order is complete and correct. Snuffles & Tugs custom gear for sports dogs is not responsible for typos or any other error at time of ordering. Completing the checkout and paying for an order binds the customer to the order as it is received.

Brie’s Choice

When selecting “Brie’s choice” on a custom product, the customer waives their right to pick that color and provides control to the maker. Snuffles & Tugs custom gear for sports dogs makes no claim to understand what the customer might find tasteful on their dog. Snuffles & Tugs custom gear for sports dogs is not responsible if the customer does not like the product when “Brie’s choice” is selected.

Care for your new product(s) by:

* Machine washing in a delicates bag on a delicate cycle (cold water, mild agitation) with gentle detergent

* Only using your products for their intended use, in dog sports competitions and training scenarios

Your product(s) can be damaged if:

* Your dog is left unsupervised with the item for any length of time

* Your dog chews on your product(s)

* Your products are used outside of the sports context they are designed for
