Thank you for using our products, which we hope you’ll find useful and enjoyable.

We are Pitpatpet Ltd (company number 09199537) – a UK company registered at 5 Brooklands Avenue, Cambridge, CB2 8BB. When we use words like “PitPat”, “our”, “we” or “us” in the following and all our additional terms, that is who we mean. 

You can contact us about our terms on


Our terms govern our relationship with you, so we ask you to read them all carefully because we’ll interpret your continued use of our products as your continued agreement with all of our terms.

These General Terms of Use apply to all of our products. Some of our products are also subject to separate additional terms.

All our terms are governed by English law, and the Courts of England and Wales have exclusive jurisdiction.

If, as part of your relationship with us, you interact with other organisations (including, for example, retailers, distributors, credit/payment providers, veterinary services, insurers, app stores or any other third parties), those interactions may be subject to additional separate terms with those parties.

Our business is focussed on pet dogs, but unless we explicitly indicate otherwise or the context requires it, our use of the word "dog" includes animals of any other species that these terms permit.


For the purposes of these General Terms of Use, all our additional terms and any other communications or interactions you may have with us, the word “product” includes all these things:

  • devices and other durables that you can buy, be given or otherwise acquire (including in the form of samples, gifts or prizes);

  • software applications including apps and other installable software, and web-based and other hosted applications/services;

  • consumables (including batteries and other product accessories, food, supplements, treats, medical and cosmetic products) that you can buy, be given or otherwise acquire (including in the form of samples, gifts or prizes);

  • services and information (including shopping, cloud, financial and healthcare services) that you can knowingly or unknowingly use (including through devices, software, apps, websites, in person, via messaging services, video call or by telephone and in other ways) and for which you may or may not directly or indirectly pay a fee;

  • interactions with us (including surveys, trials, competitions, reviews, pre- and post-sales communications and customer support interactions) that you elect to take part in.

Our liability

We want you to trust and rely on our products.

We make every reasonable and professional effort to ensure our products function as you would expect they should, that they are safe and accurate, that they can (where appropriate) be attached securely to your pet, and that they continue to work and be available to you whenever you require them.

However, our products are provided to you “as is”, and you are solely responsible for the use(s) you make of them and the outcome(s) that result.

You are responsible for the security and prevention against the loss, theft or damage of any of our product(s) that you may attach to your pet(s). Unless you have purchased specific protection against such circumstances from us, we are not liable to refund or replace any such product no matter when or under what circumstances the loss, theft or damage occurred. You must replace any such product at your own cost if you wish to continue to make use of our services. We may, in our absolute discretion, offer an ex gratia discounted price for a replacement product if we are satisfied that the circumstances of its demise are genuine and merit such an offer.

To the extent permitted by law, we make no formal promises about the fitness, performance, accuracy, safety, correctness or any other characteristic of our products or your use of them, nor about their continued availability.

We may modify, or temporarily or permanently withdraw our products at any time. There may also be bugs and unexpected outages. Whilst we will try to warn you about these things (including in advance if possible), we cannot promise to do so.
