Ben started Doggydude in 2017 after spending 12 months deciding about what to do with the rest of his career.

He has always had a way with dogs and is able to read and talk to them on a different level than most. After deciding to become a dog walker Ben went on a psychology course and that opened his eyes into how he understand how and what the dogs are saying.

This became his path and dream to help dogs with behaviour issues. Ben started the dog walking business and that took off and has been very successful over the years employing staff to help walk the dogs. Ben worked with Bury College and their Find A Job Scheme which helps people with hidden learning or mental disabilities that would struggle to hold down a job due to being nervous and struggling with human interaction. These boys are awesome with the dogs and Ben believes they help each other.

Now the dog walking is doing well Ben wants to get back to doing what he loves and that is helping people and their dogs get a better understanding of each other. He havs recently launched Doggydude Pack website which will be a dedicated website for anyone with dog behaviour issues, sessions are online or in person. Dog Behaviour Modification can be very expensive, and Ben wants to make it attenable to as many people and their problem pooches as possible.
