- We carry about 95% of our items in stock. Occasionally, we will be out of stock of an item or special order products may ship directly from the manufacturer or ordered by us when you place an order.
- In stock items usually ship 1-2 business days after you place an order (our processing time).
- Out of stock items may take up to 15 business days so please keep this in mind when you are estimating the timeframe in which you need an item delivered (processing time + shipping time).
- If you need an item sooner or by a specific date, we suggest you contact us prior to purchase so that we may check our inventory and processing time. We will do our best to accommodate special circumstances, but we cannot make any guarantees.
- Once we process your order, it may take 2-10 business days for the shipment to reach its destination (domestically; contiguous 48 states). We are located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and all in-stock shipments will originate from there.
- Please remember that once we send a package, we have no control over delivery time, dates, or any delays that may occur during shipment. Therefore we are not liable for lost or delayed packages. If there is a problem, we can point you in the right direction to contact the carrier.
- Custom orders (for Snooty Paws fashions) may take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to process, create and ship.

Lost or Damaged Packages

BDC.com is not involved in this transaction once the package is shipped and this type of issue is beyond our control and jurisdiction. Should a situation like this arise, we will point you in the right direction and assist you in any way we can.

- Items sent to us with missing tags, stains, odors, dog hairs, etc. will not be accepted and will be returned to you at your shipping cost.
