Using the website was a tad confusing, because I didn't realize the information would appear once I checked out. I was trying to see what it would look like so I ended up with multiples in the cart. It was easily fixed though. All I needed this time was a handler's card with my picture and the dog's picture. I have used this company many times and everything has been good quality and fast delivery - vests, patches, leashes, etc. Good customer service, too!
