RePaws Hardware Program

We are proud to introduce you to the If It Barks RePaws(TM) Hardware Reuse Program.

repaws.pngYou asked, you got it. Introducing the hardware reuse program. Send in your used If It Barks hardware and receive 25% off your next purchase!

I have purchased a few collars and leashes from you (love them!), and was noticing that all of the hardware on my old leashes and collars is still perfectly fine - so fine that I couldn’t bear to toss them out.  Would you ever consider offering a discount off of purchases if people returned their old hardware?  In this day and age of being green, I thought it would be great to encourage recycling!

- Johanna

How does it work?

  1. Cut the hardware free from the existing collar or leash, give it a quick wipe or wash and send to:

    If It Barks RePaws
    229 Airport Road, Suite 7-147
    Arden, NC 28704

  2. Include your email address and phone number in the envelope. Once we receive your hardware, we’ll email or call you with your 25% discount coupon (that’s 20% off for reusing your hardware and 5% to cover your shipping costs).
  3. Shop online and enter your discount code at checkout.
  4. Pat yourself on the back! You just saved perfectly good hardware from the landfill, supported our postal service and pleased your dog and your budget in three easy steps.

Common Questions

Can I send hardware from other brands?
Not at this time. For now we are asking you only send hardware from an If It Barks product.

I really need to cut the hardware off the collar or leash?
Yes, please. You can keep your dirt!

What is “hardware”?
All the metal or plastic pieces from your collar or leash. For collars, that includes a D-ring, slides and possibly a quick release clasp. For leashes, that includes the swivel snap hook (the thing you use to attach the leash to the collar.)

What do I use to cut the hardware off?
Regular or fabric scissors work great. Just snip it right off - watch those fingers.

Do I need to order the same collar or leash that I started with?
No. Your hardware will be added to a collection of hardware others send in. We inspect hardware for compromised strength to ensure it is safe to continue its life on a new collar or leash. This gives you flexibility to use the 25% coupon on any product you want. And the coupon is good for your whole order, so stock up!

What kind of envelope do I need to send it back?
The post office prefers you use a padded envelope. Send it First Class for the best rate. You can also use a priority box if you prefer.

What if I want to exchange or return the item(s) I order using the RePaws discount?
Sorry, we cannot accept exchanges or returns on items made with second-time hardware. If you want to maintain returnability, order outside the RePaws program.
