Privacy and Shipping Policy
Northern Territory Customers
To keep our prices competitive, offering one of the highest-quality dog foods, we cannot offer FREE Delivery to new customers located in Northern Territory due to extremely high delivery costs. If you live in NT and still want Stay Loyal for your dog/s please email email@example.com and we can let you know the delivery charges to your address.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: At Stay Loyal, we do our best to meet your order requirements without delays. However, 5% of orders, unfortunately, get delayed or even lost so for that reason we recommend for you to have at least 3 weeks’ worth of food on hand when placing your order to ensure that you do not run out of food due to any delivery issues.
Due to large volumes of orders can take up to 48 hrs to despatch and only on business days. Orders are only dispatched and shipped the following business day of placing an order. Expected delivery time to SYD, MELB, BRIS, PERTH, ADEL AND ACT is between 1-4 business days if your order was despatched from your nearest city. Public Holidays will take deliveries longer.
Free shipping around Australia applies to all products except for the sample and treats if they are bought on their own. When combined with other free shipping products they are also shipped at no charge to you.
Lost orders – If your order does get lost in the mail, do not worry, we will replace it, but we will need to resolve the issue before sending a replacement bag. This can take up to 5 business days to resolve so please be patient and understanding.
If you need food in a hurry, we recommend ordering another bag right away, and if the first order was lost, we will refund you.
We use couriers and Australia Post for deliveries. We cannot guarantee that couriers or Australia Post will deliver to your door as this depends on where you live, they will not deliver to the door in some rural areas.
If you do not put a delivery instruction to leave the parcel when you are not home. Depending on what service gets chosen for your order you may be charged a redelivery fee, up to $30. You may also find a calling card left in your mailbox. If you do not receive your order within 5 business days and you didn’t receive a tracking code please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly check what is happening with your order.
As we cover the Shipping and Handling cost, we use the most reliable and cost effective service, available to us, to get your dog’s food to you.
When expecting a delivery, please be sure to have your pets put somewhere safe. We have had pets escape and couriers that will not deliver when dogs are left in the front yard. The couriers work independent to us so work under their own rules. Let common sense prevail and keep your dog in a safe place when expecting deliveries from us and any other parcels you may be expecting. We do not take any responsibility for any pet-related mishaps regarding delivery. When you are expecting a delivery please keep your pets safe.
In relation to the above, please also select your delivery instructions carefully to have your order left in a safe place when delivered as we do not cover for theft or damage after the order is delivered.
Our Refunds Policy is simple… If your dog does not eat the food, we ask you to try our fussy dog feeding technique before asking for a refund, as some dogs are fussy due to incorrect feeding methods. Once your dog has tried our 7-day fussy feeding technique and if it did not work for you, then simply email us at email@example.com and you will get a prompt, cheerful refund of every cent. It is that simple!
For itchy dog’s it does take time for the digestive system and skin to heal when changing to our food, depending on how long your dog has been itchy. We recommend trying our itchy skin feeding guide and the food for at least 3 - 4 weeks or use the whole bag, whichever is longer before asking for a refund.
For dog’s that have been itching for over 6 months, it can take longer to see results, up to 3 months if only small improvements have been noticed, it’s worth persisting.
Also, unused portions of dog food will either be picked up by your nearest dog shelter organised by us or we ask you kindly to drop it off to help-out our disadvantaged dogs. Once the bag has been received by the shelter a refund will be issued.
Incorrect or incomplete order received?
If you receive an incorrect or incomplete order, please immediately email us photos of the way you received the order and the label number so that we can pass this onto the warehouse, to get your order rectified as quickly as possible.
As the warehouse is a separate company from us, if you do receive an incorrect product, they may contact you to arrange pickup of the incorrect order and send out your correct order as soon as possible.
If you open the bag, we will need to make arrangements with you for payment.
What happens if we run out of stock?
If there is a disruption to supply (we have done everything we can to make sure there isn’t a disruption) we will contact you and go through the options with you.
You may either select a replacement item to be delivered or may choose to skip that delivery and wait for the product to become available again.
