Thank you for visiting my web site. Let me tell you a little about myself. 

My name is Dusty Benson and I have been training dogs and helping owners for more than 30 years. In 1984 I gave up my job as a veterinary nurse to become a full time trainer and in 1991 I became a Member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers. For 15 years I competed in Agility competitions with my Flat Coated Retriever, Dino, and then with my 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Jay and Remy. My best achievements were competing at Crufts with my Jay, and qualifying for the Olympia show with Remy. I have also participated in dog showing for many years, having great success with my Great Dane, Shane, who also acted in the Chichester Festival Theatre production of Jane Eyre as Pilot in 1986.

I started Westergate Dog Training (Now Dustys Dog Training) in 1984 in response to a demand for outdoor dog training. One - to -one training courses are held all year round, giving a more realistic and practical training environment. I use and teach only kind and motivational training methods because training your dog should be enjoyable and fun! You will then have a pet that is controllable, sociable and a valued member of the family.
