We are a members-only organisation for canine professionals, students of canine behaviour and training, and those working in associated fields.

INTO Dogs was founded in 2007 and was the first organisation for professionals who use only science-based, force-free, ‘positive’ methods. Our members adhere to a strict code of practice and maintain high standards in their work with dogs and their care-givers.

When you consult with an INTODogs member you can be assured that you and your dog are in good hands.

If you are considering joining INTODogs, you can choose from three tiers of membership: Full members must have a qualification in dog behaviour or training and are required to meet our membership criteria. Our full members gain the titles of INTODogs Certified Canine Behaviourist and/or INTODogs Certified Dog Trainer. Friends of INTODogs is for students, dog walkers, groomers and anyone who is involved with dogs but does not have a behaviour qualification. Honorary membership is for qualified professionals who are engaged in research.

  • I've been a member of INTO Dogs now for a few years and I cannot thank them enough for the invaluable support they have given me in that time,; being self-employed can be at times tough, however being a member of this group means I have people to turn to, to ask questions and sound ideas out. The benefit of this group is the many different capacities of the members which gives a broad spectrum of knowledge to share

  • For a while we had been searching for someone we could trust who could help us with our Springer, Jake, having already wasted time and money on so-called help that actually made his situation even worse. How glad we are that we discovered the intodogs site to find ourselves a behaviourist. We were promptly put in touch with Theo 'The Dog Lady' who covers our area. Because she is a member of INTO Dogs we felt confident right from the start that she would be genuine and competent, and the support we have had since her visit has been second to none.
