This superb product was first brought to my attention by a client. Not only did this client praise the product but she also made kind comments about the helpful advice and help given by Zoe.
Since that unsolicited endorsement over two years ago, I have received numerous endorsements from my clients including this special one:
!
Quote from a client of the Animal Behaviour Clinic, Chorley:

‘Just wanted to say that the Dogmatic is fantastic !! After struggling desperately for 8 months with Rocky (St Bernard), walking him now is an absolutely pleasure. After only 5 minutes of protesting, he now walks right by my side with no pulling at all - it's amazing ! He also had a tendency to walk from one side to the other constantly and this has also been eliminated on the very first use of the Dogmatic. Even my 70 year old parents are able to walk him now and he's 12 stone of sheer power ! I can't thank you and Dr David Sands enough (for recommending it) .. it's such a refreshing change to buy a product which does exactly as it promises. I shall certainly be recommending the Dogmatic to all my friends and family.'

I HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING DOGMATIC TO ALL DOG OWNERS WHO WISH TO HAVE COMPLETE BUT GENTLE CONTROL OF THEIR DOGS IN PUBLIC.
WHO COULD IMAGINE A HORSE WITHOUT A HALTER?
I CANNOT NOW IMAGINE A DOG BEING WALKED WITHOUT A DOGMATIC HEADCOLLAR.

Dogmatic were delighted that Dr David Sands stayed at our stand and offered his support at the Pet and Aquatics Trade Show in Harrogate. Dr Sands endorses the Dogmatic and recommends it as the Headcollar of choice in his book 'Know Your Dog'. Pictured with Dr Sands, Zoe Lewsley, Susan Lewsley (who designed the Dogmatic) and our 3 generations of Italian Spinoni Kofi (Montecani Moon Storm at Estover), Archie (Elgin’s Mezzaluna at Estover) and Norman (Hincott Summer Skies at Estover). The boys behaved impeccably throughout the Show and thoroughly enjoyed modelling our range and being ‘the faces’ of Dogmatic!
