Shipping Delays: Our West Paw Elves are working hard to handcraft and ship your orders from our workshop in Bozeman, Montana! West Paw and our carriers are experiencing extremely high shipping volumes and may result in longer lead times.
We thank you for your patience with any delays you might experience. Wishing you a healthy and warm holiday season!
Domestic Shipping Options: We ship all orders from our production floor right here in Bozeman, Montana. During the checkout process you’ll have the option to choose between Economy shipping (contiguous US addresses only), FedEx Ground or FedEx expedited services.

General estimated transit times from our door to yours is visible in the Transit Map below.
