Handmade products by a solely New Zealand company using genuine Biothane from the USA

Thank you for considering our handmade Biothane products! We take pride in crafting high-quality items that are tailored to your needs right here in beautiful Kapiti. To ensure your satisfaction, please read this guide carefully before making your purchase.

1. Handcrafted to Order: All our Biothane products are meticulously handcrafted to order. This means that each item is specially made for you and your dog. However, due to the bespoke nature of our products, we kindly ask you to choose your items carefully before placing an order.  We can also make bespoke items should you have particular requirements.

2. Check Sizes Thoroughly: Accurate sizing is crucial to the fit and comfort of your Biothane dog products. We provide sizing guidelines for each product to help you select the appropriate size for your pet. Please measure your pet carefully and refer to our sizing charts to make an informed choice. If you're uncertain about sizing, don't hesitate to reach out to us for assistance.

3. Difficulty of Returns: Because our Biothane products are custom-made to order, the return process can be challenging. We want to ensure your complete satisfaction, so we strongly recommend reviewing your order details and sizing choices before finalising your purchase. If you have any doubts or questions, please contact us prior to ordering. In cases where returns are necessary, additional fees may apply to cover the cost of custom alterations and reshipping. We will always honour our Consumer Guarantees Act and Fair Trading Act obligations should any item be faulty - please refer to our Shipping and Returns page for assistance should you need to return an item.

4. Hardware Selection: We take pride in using only the highest quality materials in our products. Our hardware options include stainless steel and solid brass. For optimal performance in saltwater environments, we recommend selecting stainless steel hardware. It offers superior corrosion resistance and longevity, making it the ideal choice for water-related activities.

5. Care and Maintenance: To prolong the life of your Biothane products, regular cleaning and maintenance are recommended. Simply rinse off any dirt, salt, or debris with clean water after each use. For stubborn dirt soap and water or spray and wipe should be all it needs. Stainless steel hardware is naturally resistant to corrosion, but a quick rinse after saltwater exposure is advisable.

6. What happens if my dog chews it?: Biothane boasts a robust pulling capacity and a longevity beyond that of nylon or uncoated webbing leads; however, if left unsupervised, canines may be able to chew through it as with any other lead, so we discourage leaving it in a situation where this can occur as this will void any warranty.

7. Contact Us: If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance with your order, feel free to reach out to us via our contact page, email or phone before finalising your purchase. We're committed to ensuring you have a positive experience and are happy to address any inquiries you may have.

Thank you for choosing our handmade Biothane products. Your support allows us to continue creating high-quality, personalised items for you and your pets. We look forward to crafting something special that you and your furry friend will love!
