Ben Roberts joined the DogVills family in 2018 and has been an integral part of the writing team ever since.
“Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a much better job, considering I’ve been around animals all my life. I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t at least one cat or dog inside my home,” Ben says.
Currently, he’s a proud owner of a Beagle and a Pitbull who make sure his life is never dull. He loves sharing stories about their antics in his articles and hopes that DogVills readers find them as amusing as he does.
Education & Writing Background
Ben graduated from a small high school in upstate New York, about 10 miles from the famous Woodstock. He later moved to Florida and majored in English Literature at the University of North Florida. Today, he lives in Texas and makes his living as a freelance writer.
Although Ben joined DogVills in 2018, he’s been writing about animals for longer than that. While Ben excels in writing about any dog-related topic, he really shines when it comes to recommending the best pet gear for both new and seasoned dog owners.
His engaging writing style and talent for sorting through countless products to find the best (and ONLY the best) make his buying guides some of the best in the dog world. For example, when he shared the best dog hair vacuums, he cut through the hundreds of potential options to choose just the top FIVE best. His “no-bloat” style really helps readers cut through all of the noise and zoom in on what their dog TRULY needs.
