“The site appears to be run by a kid in his bedroom...”

Written on: 08/02/2011

The site appears to be run by a kid in his bedroom who's owned a dog for less than 3 years and has found a good way to pull in advertising $$'s. Moderation on the site is unique, the admin team will actively jump in to flame wars and inflame them further. Any view that differs to the inevitable 'half a clue about jack' regulars is rapidly bullied off the site, encouraged and participated by the admin...!! Has its amusement value, but if you want a balanced view, a wide range of information… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2011

Dogsey is a very informative and well run site, the number of members nearly 22,000 is proof of this, I have been a member there for some time. As with any site it gets its quota of trolls and spammers who when caught in the act gravitate to sites like this to vent their venom, the odd lone bitter voice among so many contented people.

I am sure they don't deter anyone from joining Dogsey… Read Full Review

As a member I'm rapidly becoming resentful of Dogsey, I've gone beyond disatified because we can't discuss anything openly without a small band attacking us for just about everything, waving a banner of "cruel" and "abusive". I'm almost scared to stroke my dog then admit it on Dogsey in case I've done it wrong and didn't use a clicker first and give a reward afterwards. Heaven forbid I've traumatised my dog and will have to deal with fallout in a few years time. Is Halti a sponsor of the site with 'moles' on the boards? A great deal of the information by posters is one sided and incorrect.

It seems to be the same half dozen regular posters who have an opinion on everything. They effectively spam the boards with their views and won't tollerate their methods being questioned, even when glaring errors are pointed out. 22000 is just a number, there aren't that many active users. It's like a club house for 'right on' PC biggots who forget there are other methods of training and not just a clicker and a halti. Very poor forum. I'll bet you're the site owner on a PR damage limitation mission.

Dogsey can no way be described as Informative.

22,000 members who only 50 odd post.

When dogsey started it looked full of promise,but after the death of its main founder Shadowboxer and Azz took over it went down hill.

Azz is a nasty bit of work and if you dont agree with his very narrow outlook you are banned.

The worst aspect of this site is members are banned from posting links to other Dog sites including Dogslost, shows what a so called animal lover Azz is.

I and a few other very knowledgeable people joined when Dogsey first started, we quickly realised what a control freak (name removed) is, you could delete the control part of that statement if you wished.

We also quickly realised what a know nothing he really is, buying a supposedly pedigree dog for a lot of money, the dog was never heard of again when he found out it was a actually a x breed.

I also remember when (name removed) joined various forums posing as a women so he could spam his site on those forums, and defend his poor site when people called it for what it was, he was so stupid to realise people wouldn't suss him out.

Want to join a dictatorship, then Dogsey is the one for you.

The one thing missing from the comments so far is, the site is censored, i wanted to contact a trainer cause i could not message soo i left my email addy, couldn't believe it when they deleted ityet they are refering to other trainers of certain types. My guess is that it is run & rented by some dog training organisation to get customers.

But hoohray, it sure is a laugh,all these disguised consumer frequented forums are the same though, so many advertising this & that everywhere… Read Full Review

What a fantastic site! Out of all the forums I visit this one is the best by far. Packed with useful information and there's always help if needed. Well laid out, well moderated and very friendly. The negative comments on here must be from banned members who are dealt with swifty to keep the site free from trouble makers and trolls… Read Full Review

Hello Azz,

Thank you for your uinbiased review...pfffftttt!!!!!!

Well moderated? Not quite. Heavily censored more like.....unless you're agreeing with the clique. The moderators ALL join in on bullying, some even state openly they have an agenda on training methods and will help target "undesirables". They went from banning shock collar discussions to prong collar discussions, then when they'd banned all those posters started on choke chains and then even half check chains. I mentioned choke chains in a post and didn't call them evil and dangerous, next thing my post gets deleted for "supporting the use of choke chains" and I'm promptly informed I'm obviously not a dog lover and am not welcome. Huh? My dog wears a flat leather collar, all I said was I think they're seriously over reacting to choke chains and *poof* off goes the post. Followed of course by a fair amount of name calling and bullying...including from Azz himself and the moderators. The trolls run the show on Dogsey.....they have a word for the posters on that site...biggots, and more accurately, self riteous tards!!!!

I am certain that Dogsey was set up Simon Cowel as a prototype comedy act for Britains Not Got Talent. Having said that, as far as giving advice on dog training, well, thats beyond a comedy act, the poor dogs at the receiving would be better off leaving home… Read Full Review

There are about 10 members of this site who lack real knowledge yet impart their thoughts for all to read, if challenged they really become abusive.Its main strength is numbers, its weaknesses it allows paid for moderation by members who in some cases are poor dog owners and who lack any real experience.It is also a place for the poorly to seek attention, many subjects areas attract the munchausen potentials.It is important with internet knowledge to verify who is giving it, with this site that… Read Full Review

An incredibly biased forum where it appears the moderators simply take sides. The administrator is rude and bias also, preferring to make jokes at the expense of members rather properly moderate.

Written on: 26/08/2009 by geshenk (1 review written)

Dogsey is a good forum for very novice dog owners to seek basic information. As with many forums there can be a lot of bad advice and misinformation so always double check anything of importance. Occasionally some very good and interesting threads materialise. Overmoderated IMO but with good intention... but still there is the usual pack-of-wolves ready to descend on new posters who step out of line or express an opinion that differs from the that of the central core of regulars. A fast… Read Full Review

Dogsey is the sort of site you go on for laugh. It's like watching the comedians. Some nights members of our club print off some of the threads and we spend hours laughing at them! This is definitely a great site for anyone that wants to bust their sides. What can you say? It's more entertaining than watching the light in the fridge and better than watching paint dry. All in all a great site for a laugh as long as you don't take it serious!… Read Full Review

I was in at the start of Dogsey when it was known as Dogweb, the information on the face of it looks good, but it must be remembered that the the poster may have no idea what they are talking about, there are no checks to a posters credentials as to their qualification to give advice, in some cases such as veterinary advice and behavioural issues it can be counter productive to take this advice.

It should be remembered that the members of Dogsey are on the whole pet owners with no formal… Read Full Review

Hi dogmad I am sorry you feel this way about dogsey,,, truely, I can only assume you have had bad experience with it, but I also work my dogs, I have never found it to be a problem on the site, in fact the opposite, Others are often very interested in the training and so on, I also on occasion offer advice re training problems, I see no problem with this, Am I a behaviourist,,,No, do I have a formal qualification NO, I have never felt the need to do it, my record talks for its self,

Dogsey - The Site for Dog Lovers is an absolutely fantastic website! You'll always get your questions answered with no silly replies. Every one's opinions count and there are on-going competitions for everyone to enter! Since buying my puppy I'm so glad I found this site, not only has it saved a lot of unnecessary vet trips, it's also showed me I'm not the only one going through certain situations. It's easier to get through puppy-hood knowing someone else is having the same issues. Also it's… Read Full Review

The people on Dogsey are extremely helpful and accept all walks of life, no matter how old/young you are what religion or what type of dog you have, they appreciate everyones points of views and you will rarely see someone spoil the postings, which for me is fantastic.
