About Doggone Good!
Since 1995 we have been selling top quality dog supplies, items you won’t find in the mass-produced stores. We made our mark in the dog world as the inventor of the Cabana Crate, the original soft-sided crate. We design and manufacture innovative dog training, play, travel and gift products.
Our site offers products by other companies in addition to the items we manufacture. All products have to meet our exacting standards for quality and design. Whenever possible we offer Made in the USA.
Just like quality materials and workmanship, the treats we offer are chosen for pure ingredients, low allergen (no corn, soy, wheat or fillers) , and whenever possible are organic. They are usually not found in larger pet stores. You can find less costly and less healthy treats that dogs like; we aspire to bring you wholesome edibles your dog will love that enhance their health and longevity.
We are proud of the fine selection we offer. It is backed by efficient operations and caring service. We grow mainly through satisfied repeat customers and word of mouth. We’ve been around a long time because we do our job well. Our mission is to offer you an enjoyable experience and the chance to purchase unique and cool things.

How To Shop
We have worked to make your shopping experience simple and intuitive so you can find what you are looking for and some things you didn’t even know you wanted until now!
Navigating our site
Our index is complete so you don’t have to guess where we put something. For example, a coffee mug would be found under Home & Garden, since it is generally used in the kitchen at home. We cross-categorize so you might also find a mug under Gift Ideas, as well as Stationary & Office, another place it might be used.
A Site Map lists the items in each category for further help, and our Search feature lets you search by keyword. When you click a category on the main index, it remains highlighted as a place marker. You will be given a grid overview of all the products and subcategories available, and each time you click a “breadcrumb” at the top of the page shows you your place in navigation (category -> subcategory -> product).
Selecting an item for purchase
Use the order bar for the product you want to set the quantity and select specific size and color choices if applicable. Then click the Buy It bone and the item automatically adds to your shopping cart. At any time you can click View Shopping Cart to see what you have purchased. You can change quantities and delete items, then recalculate to see your current updated order.
Completing your order
When you have found every cool thing your heart desires, View Shopping Cart will take you to your order and you can Proceed to Checkout to enter billing and shipping information, payment method, information on gift orders, certificates or special comments. You can create an account with your own Login and Password for future ease of shopping or continue as a Guest. Once you choose your shipping method you will get a finalized order total and can print this out for your records (you will receive a sales receipt with your package).
Confirming your order
You will receive a confirming email within minutes; this is proof your order was completed and transmitted to us. If you do not receive a confirmation you should check with us to be sure we received your order.
Join our Preferred Customer List
You can join our email Preferred Customer List for notifications of sales, specials and new items (you are not automatically added to the list, you have to check the box to request the service).
Receiving your order
Orders generally ship within 24-48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). If there are any delays or questions on your problem, you will be contacted promptly.

Finding an Item
What if I can’t find an item on the site?
We have a Site Map to show you each category and the items in the category, as well as a Search feature that can use keywords, breeds, book titles and more to help you find a specific item.
What if I can’t order the item I see?
If an item is out of stock the store will not allow you to order it you will see an "Out of Stock" graphic where the order box would be. To be informed when the item is back in stock please click the "Restock Notification" to get an email when restocked. We leave items that will be coming back into stock in view so you know what we carry, and if it is on order there will be a message with the expected due date. Not all out of stock items are restocked within a few days or weeks. You can also use the Wishlist and add the item for a future purchase.

Where do you ship?
We ship to the United States and Canada only. International customers can have their package shipped to a U.S. address (we can ship to hotels as well).
How is shipping calculated?
We charge the actual price of shipping (based on the total weight of your order). We do not charge handling.
The difference in a 1 to 2 pound package can be almost double - this is a function of the mail and UPS rates, not us (we hate it too). Both UPS and US Priority Mail round up to the next pound so a 1.1 package will calculate as 2 pounds. It is most cost effective to purchase several items in an order if possible, as it costs the same to ship a pen and it does a small bag of treats! The more items you ship the more reasonable the cost of shipping in most cases. If you can place an order for a friend or two with yours, you will get a much better rate for your package.
The shopping cart will calculate charges for the shipping methods available and give you the choice of method you prefer. In some cases only one shipping method is available and that will be the only choice given.
How quickly will my order ship?
Orders ship Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). Orders for in-stock merchandise ship within 24-48 hours* (unless noted on the product). We will contact you promptly if there is a question or problem; please note if we have a problem and are not able to contact you by phone or email, it will delay shipping.
*May be longer during peak times and sales
Please note we cannot be held liable if server problems delay our receiving your order.
- Items that ship direct from manufacturer will be stated on the site. These products will arrive within 2-3 weeks, and expedited shipping is not available. If your order includes both in-stock and drop ship items you will receive separate packages
- If there is a delay with any portion of your order you will be notified promptly by email.
When we ship by UPS you will receive an email notification. Orders that ship via UPS will include the expected date of delivery. US Mail does not have a delivery guarantee but should be received within 3 business days of ship date.
What method will my order ship? You can choose either UPS or US Mail for most orders. Certain items do not allow a choice and the cart will only give you one available method.
Items direct from the manufacturer ship via their method of choice, generally UPS.
What are the pros and cons of the shipping methods? For packages over 2 pounds UPS is usually more economical (unless you are in the western US). A major benefit of UPS is that it provides a guaranteed delivery date on ground packages (except during Thanksgiving/Christmas) and a tracking number so you can trace your package as it moves in transit.
How quickly will my order reach me? US Mail packages shipped to a US address normally arrive within 3 business days of shipment. We are in California and UPS to the east takes one week (from the day we ship). See the map below for standard delivery times for UPS Ground to your state. UPS is normally more economical for heavier packages.

Packages ship out of California (northern).
What are my expedited shipping options?
Many of our items come in various sizes/colors/flavors for your benefit but occasionally we run out of an item (or it is not available from the manufacturer). We do not take backorders for items that are not in stock.
