A lifelong cattleman, horseman and dog man, Ben Means offers his experience and expertise through The Perfect Stock Dog Training Program DVD’s. He enjoys helping you get the most out of your dog.

Ben and Leslie Means “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart…”


Ben and Leslie Means believe that working cow dogs save many man hours, reduce stress, weight loss, and are an invaluable tool to the cattleman. Whether ranch-broke or professionally trained, these dogs are an integral part of the cattle industry. They have combined their skills and talents to offer you their Perfect Stock Dog Training Program. Share their enthusiasm and appreciation for a good usable stock dog.

Ben developed The Perfect Stock Dog Training Program based on sound, common-sense training methods cohered with over 55 years of experience that one can use successfully to train their dog. He has been one of the leading cattle dog trainers in North America for nearly all of those years.

Over the years he has trained or helped people train many of the herding breeds and various cross-bred herding dogs with his methods. Though Ben appreciates a good working stockdog regardless of the breed, he prefers cattle-working Border Collies.
