COVID-19 Information

Our stores are open regular hours for in-store shopping. Face masks are required. If you are unable to wear a mask, you may shop online and we will bring your order to your car when you arrive. We are unable to accept phone orders.

We reserve the right to limit purchase quantities. There is no need to buy in excess. All of our suppliers and manufacturers are running business as usual.

Please make sure you are shopping at the store where you want to pick up your order. The store where you are currently shopping is at the top of every page. Click "Change Store" to select a different store. We are unable to move orders from one store to another.

The company that is providing our online shopping experience does not currently have functionality for the following discounts. We are unable to honor these types of discounts online:

- Coupons - manufacturer or otherwise
- Account level discounts, including Shopping Plaza Discounts and those that are grandfathered into our prior military discount program.
- Quantity discounts - for example our buy 3 for $10 type discounts
- Florida Sales Tax exemption - all online orders are charged Florida sales tax (6%) and the Hillsborough County discretionary sales tax (2.5%) Some of our monthly promotions will not be available to online shoppers.

Not all of our products in our stores are available online. Many of the items we carry, especially the loose/bulk items around the register counter do not have UPCs and at this time, cannot be added online. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Some of the product images may be dated due to recent product packaging changes by the manufacturers.

Some of the product images are not optimal - some are blurry and too small. We're working to have these corrected.

The online inventory is synchronized with our computers in the stores. But, there is a lag between updates. It is possible that something will show in stock online and we may not actually have anymore. We are working to optimize this process to reduce this possibility. If we run out of something, we will issue a credit back to your payment card used for the purchase.

Overview

Dog Gone Holistic participates in a frequent buyer rewards program called "Astro Loyalty". Through this program, customers earn "punches" on electronic cards for certain purchases of food, treats and select additional products. These punches can be redeemed for free goods. If you shop both of our stores, or shop online, punches should be combined automatically. (If you believe you are not seeing all of your purchases, please let us know and we can investigate and correct.)

If you have created an account on our online store, any product you buy that is eligible for our frequent buyer program will automatically receive a punch on your card for the purchase. If you check out as "guest" (i.e. do not create an account), you are not participating in the frequent buyer program and will not earn punches towards free products.

You may view your frequent buyer cards and punches at any time by using the Astro Loyalty mobile app, or by logging into our online store and clicking your name in the upper righthand corner.

To see what's included in Astro Loyalty and what purchase requirements must be met, please select your favorite store:

Astro Loyalty - FishHawk

Astro Loyalty - SouthShore

Note that not all products displayed on the above links are stocked in our stores, but may be available as a special order.

Redeeming A Free Item Online

When you have all of the punches on a card, you may redeem your free item online. Add the item to your cart and go to checkout. In the checkout when you get to the list of frequent buyer cards, scroll down until you find the proper card and click the "redeem" button under the card. The price of that item will be applied to your cart as a discount.

When you redeem a card for a free item, the cart will still show sales tax due. In the store, we pay the sales tax for you. The only way not to pay the sales tax is to undo the redemption, remove that item from the shopping cart and come to the store to purchase the item. Please make sure you undo the redemption so that we can redeem it for you in the store.

When you are in the cart with an item that will be your last punch on the card, you cannot also add the free item to your cart. The reason being is that your card is not punched until the purchase is paid and complete. You can turn around and create a second order just receive your free item.

If you are in the cart and select to redeem a free item and then change your mind, make sure you go back to the cart and scroll down to the card and click "unredeem" to undo the redemption.

The following contains important information and rules for our frequent buyer programs.

Many of the manufacturers of products we carry in the store have frequent buyer programs (e.g. buy 12 get one free). Dog Gone Holistic (DGH) also offers additional frequent buyer programs on brands that do not sponsor their own program. At our discretion, we extend and offer these programs to our customers. As a service to our customers, we also track the frequent buyer credits for you!

DGH has uses an online frequent buyer tracking system called "Astro Loyalty". When we enroll you in your first frequent buyer program in Astro, you will receive and email containing links where you can set up a password on your account and download the Astro mobile app. This allows you to see your punch cards on your mobile device, if you so desire. You do not need to set up a password or download the app if you do not want too. We still track everything for you and will let you know when you are due for your free item.

The rules for these programs are set by the manufacturers and DGH has no control or leeway to bend the rules. And, rules do change from time-to-time and these rule changes do impact cards that have already been started.

Here are the rules from the manufacturers that are most common:
1. Purchases are tracked via digital "punch cards" in Astro Loyalty.
2. All items must be purchased at Dog Gone Holistic. We are not allowed to accept purchases (UPC's and/or receipts) from other stores.
3. All items required to be purchased must be purchased within 12 months of the first purchase on the card. (The time-frame varies by manufacturer.) Purchases are automatically removed from Astro if/when they expire.
4. Each manufacturer/brand has their own cards. Brands cannot be mixed on a card.
5. For most programs, different sized products will be tracked on separate cards and cannot be combined to get a free item.
6. You can usually mix the varieties/flavors purchased within the brand.
7. Products for dogs and cats are tracked separately. If you buy both, we must keep separate cards.
8. You are required to provide your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address in order to obtain your free items. We are required to provide this information to the manufacturers. If you do not want to provide this information, you will not receive any free product under the program.
9. Your free item does not count as an item towards your next purchase requirement.
10. Cards have no cash value. You cannot use the value of the free bag to purchase any other item.
11. You cannot pay the difference to upgrade your free bag to a larger size (e.g. your free bag is a 5lb bag and you want to pay the difference to get a 15lb bag). The converse is also true. If you have a free 15lb bag, you cannot get a 5lb bag and used the price difference to get a refund or to purchase something else.
