Absolutely beyond brilliant!!!! Ben started working with my boy the second I opened the door, gives lots of advice. I have a very cheeky beautiful staff who likes to play using his mouth, Ben sorted the problem within ten mins, I've seen a huge difference in just the few hours since Ben left!!! Would veryhighly recommend and will be using again!! Life saver!!! More...

We rescued a GSD a couple of weeks ago, he’s never been socialised and gets very scared and becomes aggressive around people. We contacted Ben as his reviews are so good and I can say he lived up to and exceeded our expectations! He truly cares about the dogs and understands them. He has taught us how to deal with our dog when he’s nervous and how to calm him down and not get overwhelmed by things. What an amazing guy! More...

Where do I start?! Ben is FANTASTIC, from the moment he walked through the door with my Frenchies he showed us how to regain control. Simple structured changes that have made the world of difference. We are in awe. Our younger frenchie boy Blue had just been dominating our older boy Bruno, and my daughter & it turns out us too (Mum & Dad :) ). Ben showed us how to enforce manners & calm Blue down. From Ben leaving on Fri evening we spent the whole weekend with a different dog. Cannot recommend enough!! We will continue with what we were shown & hopefully succeed going forward. Thanks alot Ben! More...

100% recommend Doggy Dude, amazing service, gets to know you and your dogs rather than just telling you a generic plan. Takes you and them out of your comfort zone, wish I had used him sooner! Thanks Doggy Dude!!

Doggy Dude was brilliant . He came at the time we arranged and even phoned to say he was on his way , He was fantastic with our dog Digger from the minute he walked in and had Digger behaving almost straight away . We are all still learning from the advise and tips he gave us but enjoying walks with Digger a lot better,would highly recommend Doggy Dude to anyone who has a Doggy problem. More...

Almost from the minute that Ben met our dog digger who is a Border Terrier he was a different dog. Ben was so calm with him ,he had Digger doing what Ben wanted him to do and not what the dog wanted to do. We have been doing the same since. On the walk he showed my husband a lot of different things that really helped get the best from the dog and we look forward to continuing like this, More...

Ben was brilliant whilst helping us with koda our border collie dog Ben was very patient and friendly with koda, and he made sure we were all confident with walking koda on the lead, and gave us heaps of information, I have not been able to walk koda on my own before as he pulled so much on the lead and wasn't enjoyable, but after meeting Ben and how he has helped us and shown us how best to handle koda, I am confident I will be able to take koda out for a walk on my own. I would definitely recommend Ben

Just met the doggy dude today. Has a really calming energy about him. My big lad loved him. My dog was pretty much calm the second doggy dude took his lead. Going to the dog group on Wednesday to continue the work started today. The whole session has given me hope that my puppy will be a sociable boy once again. Would definately recommend the services of Doggy Dude� More...

Well Ben! Seems you may have started the path to changing my Staffordshire bull terrier for the better! Not sure if he is just shattered from all the training or if he is learning but safe to say he hasn’t jumped at the window once and even the pizza delivery man didn’t run a mile! Thank you so much for your help! I will definitely be using all the advice you have given me and calling you for advice when needed! � HIGHLY RECOMMEND � More...

Ben came to our home to assess our 4 adored dogs because we were having a couple of issues we needed some help with. Ben is lovely and adores dogs which to me is so very important. He took the time to understand us as a family and how our dogs fitted into our lives. Ben went out on a walk so he could get a full idea of how they behaved.
Ben pretty quickly identified the issue and gave us some great ideas on how to address and hopefully improve the issues
Ben wasn’t critical of how we allow our dogs to behave (as we know they are a little spoilt �) but just gave us some sound ideas on how we can tweek the bad habits and hopefully improve all our time together.
I would highly recommend Ben.

Ben was amazing with Hero. He understood why he behaves the way he does, it was as much a lesson for both of us rather than just dog training.
Ben is very understanding, friendly, plesant and certainly made friends with my puppy.
Booked for a revisit and see how were getting on.
I cannot reccomend Ben and his services enough.

We’ve already booked our next session - can’t recommend Ben enough. � More...

It was so lovely to meet Ben today...he was very patient while my border collie literally jumped all over him while constantly barking!! � he gave us lots of tips to help ruby be a much more calmer dog...and explained in detail why she does the things she does. It's not hard to see that Ben absolutely adores dogs and loves to help. Would def recommend Him...thanks so much for coming over today � More...

We have never allowed anyone other than family members to take our much loved dog Lottie, out for a walk, however after meeting Ben and watching his interaction with her we knew instantly that they were going to be the best of friends. Lottie gets soooo excited when Ben arrives, it makes us laugh, she runs straight to his car and can’t wait to go to play.
We love his little videos too.

Thankyou for your time and hopefully see you again soon with a more chilled out pup!

Ben is a great trainer for Rusty my Labrador.. Helped him calm down when walking, still along way to go but I have every faith he will get Rusty there. He's always there at a drop of a hat if I need him to walk Rusty anytime..He's taught us alot of how Rusty thinks and why he behaves the way he does. It's helped me as his owner to realise what I did to confuse Rusty when out. I've learnt to read Rusty more due to Ben. Thanks Ben.. More...

Ben is absolutely amazing. We contacted him to do house visits with our 1.8 month old dog and our puppy as we were at work. Ben came every single day and spent a good while with our dogs, he kept us updated consistently and sent us pictures of our doggos. One time our puppy made a mess with the toilet paper and he was kind enough to tidy up. He has walked them and has helped with our older dog who is a bit barky with other dogs. You can tell he loves and understands dogs and it's reciprocal. Our older dog is very nervous around people and he took time to build up her trust. She now loves him and approaches him enthusiastically. Would 100% recommend him. He's extremely professional as he takes care of both yours and your dogs needs and is very flexible. More...

Ben came to our home to help us with our 9 week old pup. His mum had an emergency section so she hadn't bonded with the pups & hadn't interacted with them. This meant that Jax had no manners & had started to become aggressive towards us when we wouldnt let him do something. He had started to be quite dominant. Ben showed us how to show him that we are in charge & not him. Within hours Had was responding to commands & he has calmed down a lot & he is listening a lot more. I really cannot thank Ben enough, I was getting upset thinking I'd done something wrong with him. But Ben taught us that it was all about his psychology as a dog & him trying to be leader of the pack. More...

Although I have not yet engaged the services of Doggydude (because I am still getting to know my rescue dog and its still early days), I have spoken to him twice.

Ben is amazing, my Labrador Rusty was unsure when Ben arrived to the house and was very protective over his family.. he was circling and growling. Ben calmly sat down and won Rusty over with confidence. He now trains Rusty every week with anything we have spoken about that needs addressing. He's trust worthy and confident in what he does. Not only that Ben loves what he does. Not just a job for him but the love he has for pets too. Thanks Ben. More...

Q&A

To see the results that comes from helping dogs with problems and to see owners that have the dog that they wanted. That is so satisfying. Being able to help people understand how there dog thinks and bring balance to both the lives of dog and owner.

Mad for animals I decided to make a career out of it. Enjoying pets of all walks of life make for such a happy existence. I have a canny way with understanding dogs and have done all my life. After completing some dog behavioural training and canine first aid I am even more now confident of helping any dogs and their owners for a better quality of life. I have had a variety of pets over my life from dogs and cats to lizards and tropical fish and have enjoyed them all.

I love all dogs from small snappy Jack Russells to large scary Mastiffs. They are all dogs that need a loving and caring friend that will help to train them to be better behaved dogs. I have alot of patience am friendly,polite and very approachable.
