What days is Shortie the Dog delivering?

Father’s Day weekend: 31st August and 1st September

What time will Shortie the Dog arrive?

You will receive text and phone call communication from Shortie the Dog to advise a 2-hour delivery window in which he will arrive.. Please expect a text message no later than 5pm on August 27th. Shortie the Dog will be delivering between 9am – 5pm on 31st August or 1st September.

Can I choose my delivery date and time? Is the timeframe flexible?

Shortie the Dog will have many fathers to visit over the weekend and therefore the delivery time and day will be allocated to you. We will however do our best to accommodate any changes, but we do ask if recipients can be available on both days during the potential delivery hours. The confirmation text will include details of who to contact should your allocated delivery time need to be altered.

How long will Shortie the Dog stay?

He will approximately stay for 15 minutes with your Dad. As mentioned, Shortie the Dog will have a lot of fathers to visit over the weekend. We want to ensure every interaction is meaningful but also must be mindful of time. Please make the most of your time with Shortie the Dog by giving him pats and taking photos with him during your visit time frame.

How is Shortie the Dog treated? Will he be okay?

We are taking measures to ensure that Shortie the Dog is well cared for and has plenty of rest and walk time during his deliveries. Shortie the Dog will also be accompanied by his trainer who will be keeping a close eye on him and providing him with everything he needs including food, breaks, and a safe transportation carrier that he will be secured in while driving around.

Who will be delivering the Ardbeg bone? What should I expect?

Your gift will be ‘delivered’ by Shortie the Dog, with assistance from our Ardbeg Ambassadors and Shortie’s trainer. Shortie the Dog will also be carrying a special personalised Father’s Day message for your dad. 

Whose details should I put in the delivery & contact section?

Please put your details in the contact details. You will need to put your desired delivery address (where Dad will be on Father’s Day weekend) in the delivery section.

We will contact you to get your Dad’s name and phone number to keep your gift a surprise.

How old do I need to be to purchase / receive this experience?

Purchasers and recipients must be a minimum of 18 years of age in compliance with Australian law.

I do not live in one of the delivery postcodes, can I still get an Ardbeg bone?

Yes, the Ardbeg bone will be available for purchase through Dan Murphy’s without the Shortie delivery component.

How many Ardbeg bone Shortie deliveries are available?

The Ardbeg bone Shortie Delivery is a gift with purchase, limited offer whilst stocks last. It is first come, first serve so be sure to purchase yours early.

When will the Ardbeg bone Shortie delivery be available for purchase?

The Ardbeg bone Shortie delivery will be available as a gift with purchase on Monday the 12th of August and will be available while supplies last.

I do not have a physical home address; can I order the Ardbeg bone Shortie delivery?

Unfortunately, Shortie the Dog requires a physical home address to deliver the Ardbeg bone. Purchasers must provide a physical home address and not a PO Box, company, or other non- residential address.
