**If you are unsure whether you fall under a UK mainland address (using DPD & Royal Mail standards), our website now offers a delivery estimation feature, based on your post code. Please note that this is an estimation and will vary between size and weight of orders.

Personalised dog gifts

We make all of our dry food right here on the family farm and our personalised bones are made to order. Please allow 5-7 working days for delivery of personalised dog treats and hampers (…we think you’ll agree that they are worth the wait!).

Orders over 65kg

Please note, orders exceeding 65kg may be shipped via Kimes. In these instances, you will be contacted by a member of the team. Delivery via Kimes may take 7 working days. Applies to UK Mainland only.

Tracking & Delivery

Deliveries are be made with our nominated courier services, DPD and Royal Mail. All parcels are trackable and your courier will send you a tracking link if a mobile number and email address is provided when you place your order. You don’t need to be available to accept your Laughing Dog food delivery at your address as the tracking link sent will allow you to add delivery instructions to leave in a safe place. You must do this if you will not be present to accept your delivery. Any missing parcels, where a safe place is not submitted, will not be the responsibilty of, or replaceable or refundable by Laughing Dog.

Due to poor weather conditions or other events outside of our reasonable control, a late or cancelled delivery may occur.

Missed deliveries

Please note, it is the responsibility of each customer to accept all deliveries and to ensure that they are either at home or leave a ‘safe place’ note on their respective delivery consignment, if not home to directly accept the parcel. This delivery message must be added via the  DPD/Royal Mail app alongside an image of the specific safe place that is requested.

If a delivery is missed and further instructions are not provided for DPD/Royal Mail via their app, Laughing Dog will not be held responsible for the goods. If a parcel is thereafter returned to Laughing Dog, the customer will be automatically refunded for their order, minus a £6.50 return charge (reflective of DPD return cost & additional DPD surcharges).

Incorrect address / missing details

It your responsibility to ensure that your address details are correct – ensuring a full address is detailed. You will receive a copy of your order details via email. Once your order is shipped, we cannot make any amends for you. We cannot accept responsibility for any failed deliveries due to incorrect or missing address details.

Do you live in a flat or university accommodation?

Please note that delivery drivers are only insured on ground floor. Therefore, to avoid your parcel being left in a communal area please add ‘call me’ instructions to your delivery, or a ‘safe place’ – that does not go above ground floor. You can do this via your delivery email and SMS notifications. If this has not been done in advance of your delivery, we are unable to raise this parcel as lost, and will not be able to replace or refund the items.
