Our returns policy is 30 days for most products (unless otherwise specified on individual product page). If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. Where possible, It must also be in the original packaging. You must also contact us first at

Once your returns request has been reviewed, one of our team will confirm the necessary return instructions.

Wrong Item : 

If for some reason the wrong item is received, we will send the correct item free of charge.

Wrong Address / Shows Delivered but not Received : 

We are not responsible if a package is undeliverable because of missing, incomplete, or incorrect destination information. We do our best to avoid errors by verifying the shipping information with every customer in the order confirmation.

We are also not responsible for items that show delivered but have not been received. If your parcel shows delivered in tracking and we can verify the correct address was used when ordering, please contact us at and we will provide details of your local carrier so you can contact them to lodge a complaint.

In this instance, for lost orders, we can assist with a replacement if the carrier does not first accept responsibility.

Costs to reship the package will be invoiced to the customer.

Unexpected Delays

In some instances delivery may take longer than the standard shipping times stated above. External factors might cause shipping delays such as international customs processing and holidays that we cannot control. Please contact us if your package is taking too long to arrive and we will work with you to resolve any situation.

Due to factors that commonly affect international shipments, such as weather delays, global pandemics, holidays and customs inspections, we are unable to guarantee shipping times or refunds on delays outside of our control. 

Personalised and Custom Items

As these items are custom made or personalised for you, no returns or refunds can be accepted for change of mind after order processing has already begun. If after receiving your order it can be ascertained that Buddies Pet Shop has made an error based on your submitted requirements, we will replace the item. Please send a photo of your product as received to our email if any issues.

In most instances, if it can be verified that Buddies Pet Shop is at fault, a replacement will be processed without the need for you to return your original item.

Any and all cancellations, change requests must be requested within 24 hours of ordering. This can be arranged by contacting us.

Color Discrepancies

Actual colors may vary. This is due to computer monitors displaying colors differently and everyone can see these colors differently. We try extremely hard to ensure our photos are as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual color may vary slightly from your monitor. We cannot guarantee that the color you see accurately portrays the true color of the product. If you are not satisfied with the bed as received, please contact us so we can provide our return details.

Free Gift Claims

At certain points, Buddies Pet Shop may offer free gifts with purchases dependant on spend requirements. Once you are eligible you will be prompted with the gift offer either in the cart or on the page you are visiting. Please note, you must click 'Claim Gift' and have the gift added to your order to be eligible. As we require the gift value to be accounted for and deducted from the total purchase value, if you have not clicked 'Claim Gift,' at the point of purchase we will regrettably be unable to offer the gift to you at a later stage.
