Q: How do I care for Pit Bull Gear Designer Leather Products (Croc, Gator, Genuine)?
A: If you ordered one of our designer collars, harnesses or leashes (croc, gator, genuine) treat it like an expensive leather purse or jacket. How it is taken care of is how it will look. As with any high quality designer leather you want to keep it from getting wet to a minimum.
For Dirt, Dust, Light Stains: (All Leather Products)
(1) Clean the hardware with Never Dull (including spikes & studs) Do Not Use this on the Name Plate if you have one. For a Name Plate just lightly dab with WD-40. Do Not Wipe.
(2) Wipe the whole collar/harness/leash off (except name plate) with a dry rag or cloth (Do Not Rub)
(3) Use a damp soft cloth with a mild soap and warm water and gently wipe the whole collar down (Never Rub)
(4) For a heavier clean & condition, we recommend using Leather Amore from Bee Natural Leathercare. To apply, use a terry cloth or micro towel to lightly brush a dab across the leather. Again, you never want to rub hard on the leather or the color will start to rub off.
Following these steps will help keep your designer leather looking great and lasting a long time!
Q: Are Pit Bull Gear Leather Products Guaranteed?
A: We stand behind our leather products!

Q: How do I care for a Name Plate?
A: Your custom name plate is made from Nickel Silver or Brass. It will require maintenance over time to keep it looking brand new.
NICKEL: If your nickel name plate begins to tarnish, use fine steel wool lightly over the top (be careful not to scratch the collar), use a jewelry polishing pad for shine (optional), then lightly dab WD-40 or coconut oil on top.
BRASS: The gold coloring is known to tarnish, or appear dirty, due to chemical reaction caused by air or moisture. This may also cause your name plate to look worn out. If this occurs, simply use a soft cloth to wipe the tag, add Brass Polish and hand buff until you have it looking like new again.
Q: Can I Cancel My Leather Order?

Q: I placed an order but the site said that my order was declined, but my bank records show I was still charged. Why?
A:If an order attempt is placed and your credit/debit card is declined for any reason other than insufficient funds the funds are “held” by your financial institution until the transaction in question is settled. Transactions are usually pending for a period of 3-5 business days (depends on the card issuer/ bank).
Q: My order will not go through, but I have the funds. Why?
A:In most cases if a transaction is declined (other then not enough funds) it is because your billing information you are entering does not match perfectly with your credit card. Please verify that the billing address you entered exactly matches the one associated with the credit card. If the credit card is still declined, you may want to call your credit card issuer and check to see if they support AVS filtering.
