What Our Clients Say
“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.”
