What would our project be without some stories about rescue dogs? This is a feel good story you're going to love.

Meet Aurora (left) and Freya (right). These are two 5-week old Great Pyrenees Mutt Mixes. Obviously there are some very dominant Great Pyrenees traits going on here; but what's most important is that they now have loving homes!

Both of these puppies came from known owners and are being adopted by two of Alex's friends. Aurora will be living in California and Freya will move to Washington but the great news is that they'll still be able to see each other every so often because their new humans know each other very well.

In the future, I'll be working with our Partner Rescues to try to get more Happy Tails stories! For now, if you're eager to get us a story for Happy Tails please email us at info@dogsbondgame.com and we'll work to get your story online!

We have opened up the Pledge Manager - CrowdOx - to everyone! Through CrowdOx you can update your "ship to" address if you need to and we will take care of you. We are still on target to print, quality/safety test, and deliver the games in May 2021. Please fill out your CrowdOx surveys if you haven't already!

BACKERS: You should have received an email survey. This is our process to confirm your order, and ensure that the shipping address that you have is correct. We are collecting shipping information and fees now so that when the game arrives we can send the games as soon as possible.

Plan on moving between now and May 2021? Use CrowdOx to update your shipping information in a snap.

Have you talked about the game and a friend asked you to get them a copy? Use CrowdOx to update your pledge order at any time.


Is CrowdOx an official Dogs BOND seller?

Yes. We are working with them to host us now that we can take preorders but are still in the process of getting printing and child safety testing done.

I don't want to add anything to my pledge, do I have to answer the survey? Yes. The survey is how we are systemizing the shipping confirmations for the project. Sorry for the multiple messages on that.

Are you already shipping? No, we're just collecting the information and votes at this time. We are just as excited (if not more!) for the games to be printed and shipped to you. ESTIMATED TIME FOR DELIVERY MAY 2021.

It's been a fast month since we funded, but the team has been working extremely hard to move forward with production of Dogs BOND! There were a few delays due to the pandemic but we are overcoming them. Thank you for your patience.

Printing - We've narrowed down our printing vendor and we should be signing contracts with them over the weekend. We are behind several other projects that were backlogged due to the global health crisis.

Fulfillment - Simultaneously we have narrowed down the fulfillment centers who will help us take the game and appropriately manage customs. Estimates for delivery is still May 2021.

Shipping - We have put forward shipping estimates as best we could. These estimates should maintain, but we are at the mercy of market and political forces. We are working to find the least expensive shipping options that will also guarantee that your games get to you - undamaged.

FAQ: What can you do about shipping costs?

We are working with brick-and-mortar game shops in attempts to provide local pickup and greatly reduce your shipping cost. Ask your local game shop for details, or drop us an email for your friendly local game shop and we'll inquire for you.

For our backers in Hawaii -

Our shipping estimates were off. Sorry about that. In reality, it's going to cost $21 to ship each copy so your shipping costs are higher than our estimate of $16. We are going to subsidize a little more than 50% of that cost which should be reflected in your pledge surveys.

We are working to find a solution: potential local pickup on the island. If we get additional backers / copies sold to Hawaii, we can bulk ship to our partners at KawaiiKon or a local game shop to facilitate a local pickup for Oahu.

Thank you all for your patience! We're working hard to push forwards and get this game production underway!
