DO WE DO?
Dogs Testing is a gear testing and development business that specializes
in testing sports and adventure gear, clothing, shoes, nutritional supplements,
etc. We can work hand in hand with the manufacturer during the development
phase, if desired, or can simply test and critique the finished product.
What you get is a no bones written evaluation based on rigorous and
extreme testing of your product. "If its good we’ll tell you,
if it’s not--you’ll know". We will combine a honest opinion
of strength and weaknesses of your product with a detailed report that
you can take to the bank.
