Terms & Policies
By purchasing from this Website www.pooch.ca, you agree to abide by the terms we have set out below. We know you want to get to the fun stuff, but we have to get a few rules out of the way, so please pay attention. These are important.
Minimum Amount to Order Policy
We offer low subsidized shipping fees, but in order to benefit from it, you must place a minimum order of at least $20 CAD in merchandise (excluding taxes & shipping fees). Orders less than $20.00 CAD will be processed along with the actual shipping fees plus include $5.00 handling charge. So it helps to order more! The more you order, the more you save.
Errors and Omissions Policy
Pooch Canada Pet Supplies is not liable for any misprints, errors or omissions, which may include, but are not limited to, graphics, incorrect pricing or product specifications. This does not mean that you will come across a flood of errors on our website, but nobody is perfect and errors are bound to happen. By using this website, you agree to this and conform to our policies. We make efforts to give you a seamless shopping experience. Of course, you don’t have much time to spare for shopping when you have an adorable four-legged friend to take care of! Rest assured, you will have a gala time shopping with us!
Out of Stock Items Policy
Just another way to show we care. We are proud to declare that our customer service is a step above the rest.
We ship through Canada Post’s “Expedited Parcel” to any location in Canada and the United States, including remote areas in the northern regions, such as Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Yukon and Alaska. Our subsidized regional flat shipping fee makes it affordable and enjoyable for you to shop at Pooch Canada Pet Supplies, irrespective of your location in North America.
The regional flat rate allows you to bulk up your order, without having to pay any extra shipping charges. We apologize we do not ship outside North America.
If an item is damaged during transit, we will file a claim with Canada Post to request an investigation into it. You may be required to return the damaged or defective items to us. After 48 hours, the Manufacturer’s Warranty (if applicable) will be your remedy for any defects or problems.
All that said, here’s another important rule: Due to the nature of pet products, we do not offer refunds. All Sales are final and returns are for exchange only.
All “Opened Box” electronic or electrical products are not entitled to an exchange. If you find that you wish to return a product for any other reason (prefer a different color or different size etc.), we are happy to make an exchange and we will adjust the difference in pricing accordingly, if applicable. However, returns must be authorized by us in advance within 48 hours after you receive your order. The actual shipping fees and $5.00 handling charge to cover the shipping materials would be applied on the exchange product(s). We apologize, but we cannot subsidize shipping fees on exchange product(s).
You may return an item for exchange, provided
We have approved your returns.
All original display packaging or boxes are returned. They are not marked, spoiled, damaged or have stickers on them.
All manuals, instructions, warranty registration cards and parts are returned.
The item is in new condition and has not been used.
Returns are shipped within 7 days after an RMA number is issued.
“Return Merchandise” and the RMA number are clearly marked on the return parcel.
We will not incur any charges for duties, taxes, etc. due to the parcel not being marked “Return Merchandise to Sender.”
It is important to remember that return shipping fees and insurance is your responsibility. We cannot refund shipping charges.
Internet Security Policy
To further enhance your online shopping security, Pooch Canada Inc. has chosen Moneris’ eSelectplus® as our payment processor.
Moneris Solutions is a joint investment between RBC Royal Bank and BMO Bank of Montreal (including Harris Bank) that was launched in December 2000. Moneris Solutions is Canada’s largest processor of debit and credit card transactions.
After completing the processes at our Checkout area, you are transferred to the secure payment page hosted by Moneris’ eSelectplus® to enter your credit card information.
Your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, is encrypted so that it cannot be read while being transmitted over the Internet with Secured Sockets Layer (SSL).
SSL is a protocol that transmits your communications over the Internet in an encrypted form, keeping prying eyes away from your personal data. It ensures that the information is sent unchanged only to the intended server.
How do you know you’re on a secure site?
After completing the processes at our Checkout area, you are transferred to the secure transaction site. The lock icon on your browser will be closed. The URL for the site will start with https://
If you do not see the lock icon and https://, it is not a secured data encrypted site.
Interesting, but what does that mean?
Well, that means shopping at Pooch Canada Pet Supplies is safe!
In fact, it would be much easier for someone to obtain your credit card information from a credit card receipt than it would be to intercept an online transaction with www.pooch.ca
What is Verified by Visa®?
The Verified by Visa® (“VbV”) service is an online global authentication service from Visa™ designed to make online shopping more secure for both customers and merchants. The VbV service confirms a cardholder’s authenticity, in real time, through the use of their personal password, making online shopping safer than ever for VISA™ card holders.

What is MasterCard SecureCode®?
MasterCard SecureCode® is a private code for your MasterCard account that you can use when you’re shopping online. Only you and your financial institution know what your code is — retailers aren’t able to see it. So you can trust that your transactions get independent approval every time. MasterCard SecureCode® works with your existing MasterCard account, requires no download, and it’s easy to activate and to use.
