We are super touched that you love our brand that much, you'd like to be an Ambassador.
However, we receive this question on a daily basis, and more times than we can count. Unfortunately, we are unable to reply to every single enquiry that we receive, as there isn't enough time in the day, so please don't be offended if you don't receive a reply.
We aren't actively looking for Mascots currently, however, when we do have opportunities arise, Instagram, Facebook and our Mailing List will be the first places we announce this - so make sure you are following or on the list to be the first to know.
So you are prepared these are some of the things we look for when selecting Mascots:
1. A public profile that features high quality posts and has a high rate of engagement
2. You must own BIG & LITTLE DOGS products (this shows that you genuinely love and support our brand!)
3. Profiles that post quality reels, IGTVs, TikToks regularly will be considered highly
This is another question we receive hundreds of enquiries about each week.
As a small business, we are unable to participate in many giveaways or offer free products for your giveaway.
We do apologise for this and please don't be offended if we don't reply to your enquiry.
As a small business, we are unable to give out free products or samples for you to review or feature on your social media.
We would love your honest feedback from any purchase you do make and we also appreciate you supporting small.
Every dog is different in size and shape, so please make sure that you measure and double check the sizing of your pup before making a size selection.
Please also note, our sizing may be different to other brands that are on the market. Ensure that you double check the sizing of each harness. We would recommend not assuming that you will be the same size as another brand.
Also note that each Harness Type does have a different sizing, so please ensure to check the size chart prior to purchasing, as your pup may be in a different size in each type of harness.
To find the best size for your fur-baby check out our sizing charts.
Any questions in regards to sizing, please email email@example.com.
CARE OF PRODUCTS
We recommend spot cleaning your products.
However, you can pop them in a delicates bags and on a gentle cold cycle in your washing machine (you can use a mild detergent).
Then lay flat or hang to dry (not in direct sun).
We have delicate/wash bags available for the purpose of washing. Which can be found here.
Our car seat cover have a non-slip base, which is not suitable for a machine wash.
Due to the size and materials used on the car seat covers, machine washing is not recommended in order to avoid catching the material during the washing cycle.
To clean your car seat covers, we recommend wiping them down, spot cleaning or hose washing them. Then hang them to dry (not in direct sun).
As with anything you purchase, it isn't indestructible and designed to last forever unfortunately.
However, with care and careful handling, you can prolong the quality and life of your BIG & LITTLE DOGS (BLD) products.
Wear and tear will depend on your pet's individual everyday lifestyle. If they wear something everyday, swim in it, roll around in it, you are likely to see wear and tear a lot quicker than if they only wear it every so often.
Therefore, we recommend not wearing your BLD products everyday continuously, but cycle between a few different designs, so to prolong the quality of the item.
Also check on a regular basis if there is any visible wear and tear. If you do see any wear or tear, we recommend thoughtfully disposing of the item.
Do not leave a harness on your pet when you are not walking them. They are not designed for any use, other than walking. They are not designed to withstand normal day to day playing; but for for walking. If you are looking for something your pet can wear at other times, we recommend looking at a collar.
Because we aim to process and ship your order within 24-48 hours of it being placed, it may not be possible to change or cancel your order.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate your change or cancellation.
Please note it is not possible to change or cancel an order that has already been processed and dispatched. In this case please refer to our Returns and Refunds policy.
Our products are LIMITED EDITION releases. This means that once a design sells out, it won't be restocked (with some exceptions).
This allows us to release new designs regularly to keep your pupper's wardrobe on fleek.
However, this also means that you may be disappointed that their size isn't available :-( We are truly sorry for that!
We do suggest that if you do see something you love and it is in-stock, don't hesitate as it might not be available the next time you visit.
And if you want to be the first to know about our newest releases, sign up to our mailing list here.

Our All-Rounder Harness is a little bit fiddly when you first receive it while adjusting it to your pup's perfect fit.
We have a great booklet which has step by step instructions with images to show you the best way to adjust the harness.
Please email us at info@bigandlittledogs and we can email you a copy.

Because we respect your privacy and are appreciative of your business and the trust you have placed in us, at no stage (other than to complete a delivery) will we provide any account information, email, contact or other personal information to any third party vendors or service providers.
DELAYED OR MISSING ORDERS
Before contacting us, please ensure you have allowed sufficient time for your order to arrive.
Domestic deliveries range from between 1-10 days (interstate and remote deliveries may be longer) and international deliveries can take between 5-25 days.
Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions and busy periods, these time-frames may not be able to be met by the postal carriers we use.
You can check the delivery status of your order, by checking the tracking information that was emailed when your order was shipped.
If your order was going to an international destination, once the parcel is scanned into the destination country, you will more than likely be able to use the same tracking number on your local postal carriers website to track your order.
If you feel your order has been unnecessarily delayed please contact us by email (email@example.com) and we will investigate further.
Please note that investigations into delays can take between 5-60 days to be completed by our postal carriers, and unfortunately any delays our outside of BIG & LITTLE DOGS control.
Unfortunately this does sometimes happen if a postal carrier is unable to locate a delayed order.
If this is the case, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to discuss the options available.
If you haven't received your order and one of the latest scans shows that the order is being "Returned to Sender", this does mean that the postal carrier used was unable to deliver your order for a specific reason.
The most common reasons include:
* Order was not collected from a local post office after a number of days. If for some reason the carrier was unable to deliver originally, it will be returned to a local post office for collection and a card left to advise of this. Most post offices allow between 14-30 days for collection and after this time the parcel is returned to us.
* Incorrect or insufficient address
If your order is returned to us because of the above reasons, once it arrives back we will get in contact to discuss the available options. If you do want your order to be re-shipped, we will need to charge a shipping fee again (as the original fee has already been paid to the postal carrier). Or if the order is refunded, any original shipping fees are non-refundable.

Our office and warehouse is based in Brisbane (Australia), which is where our products are designed. They are then made in China.
Prior to launching our brand we were very meticulous in finding a manufacturer for our products. We sample products a number of times to ensure that they are of the highest quality and standard that we expect of any product we produce and sell.
Our Co-Founders have travelled to China numerous times since launching to meet with the teams that help bring our brand to life, to inspect the factories that our products are manufactured in and to ensure that the quality we strive for is continuously being met.
You will find customer reviews on most products. They will be at the bottom of the page.
You can also check out some of the reviews our customers have left for our dog harnesses, collars and leashes here.
You certainly can! And we would love to THANK YOU for taking the time to do that - we appreciate all reviews, comments, feedback and suggestions we receive.
You will receive an email about 30 days after your purchase was completed with details of how to leave a review. But if there are any issues in the meantime, please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yayyyyy! We are super excited that you are interested in stocking our products. We are always on the look out for new stockists that align with our brand.
