SHIPPING

Elite Hound Ltd also offers a unique and bespoke service creating items to your customer specification. Please allow a little extra time for us to create your piece by hand, and ship it to you.

Elite Hound Ltd aims to dispatch items in stock for your order within 48 hours of receipt of payment details – excluding weekends, bank holidays and public holidays. This is subject to credit clearance and availability of stock. Most of our products are limited additions and made to order. Please allow extra time for production usually 3 working days. We will contact you with the delivery date information. Please contact us on info@elitehound.com for more information on our bespoke service.

Your parcel is sent via “Royal Mail Signed For™ 1st Class” or “International Tracked & Signed” unless noted otherwise. Notify the seller prior to making the purchase, if priority mail is preferred.

If the shipping address is different from the address provided through PayPal, please contact the seller prior to payment. If the PayPal addresses are different, and no special instruction has been provided, Elite Hound will send the order to the address provided through our web page.

Worldnet International Couriers will be used for deliveries going to the Ukraine and Russia. As soon as your order has left our studio you will receive a dispatch confirmation with the tracking number (Air Waybill) from the corresponding delivery company, together with details on how to track your order. Please note that these services might not be available during the festive and pre-festive days.
