About me & how Ry’s got started
My name is Ryan, I’ll answer to most things but Ryan was what mum called me. I’m a local lad who grew up in East Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
I moved away and off the island as I turned 16. Started my Army career and served at war, in 3 different hot and cold environments, spending just over 3 years in war zones alone. I spent just over 5 years in the dog handling / training regiment, handling and training in some of the toughest environments possible… but 12 years in total had me leaving in 2015. I started Ry’s Dog Training and haven’t looked back since.
I am a qualified, insured, experienced but balanced dog trainer. I have achieved so far, a great deal in such little time with a small but Full-Time business. We now have great building blocks to go forward and achieve much much more.. so continue to watch this space !!
I would say that my business is no where near where I want it to be so expect big things coming soon and in the next few years. We’ve now got the start of a team building here and are constantly looking to expand. Recent developments include the expansion of Ry’s Dog Day Care & Ry’s Home from Home, offering bespoke dog walking, day care, drop in and in your home boarding services.
Before this I’d never known anything self employed or even business related and have had to learn on my feet whilst running after what seemed to be a moving bus. I’d like to take the time to thank the individuals that share, name drop, tag, nominate, refer and talk about me or the business. THANKYOU !!
There isn’t a dog too small, too old or too peculiar that I can’t help in some sort of way… even in the smallest of ways however there isn’t a time frame for dogs as they all learn at different speeds. I try to help the owner as well as the dog to understand what your dog is trying to tell you.
Being a dog owner myself, I’m sure Poppy is better known than any of us. Especially after her having a litter last year (who now aren’t so little) I’d like to think I know what you as an owner are wanting / going through. I will always remain flexible, dependent on client. It seems in the present day that there is a warped perception on what balanced training is, therefore would like to try and help with changing that very misguided perception.
We continue to grow here at Ry’s and now have a team of 6 people. Due to heavy demand and even heavier diary booking I needed help. I carefully hand picked people who would only compliment the business and excel it. I look forward to you meeting and speaking to them in the future.
So please…get in touch, book in and ensure that your dog is healthy, balanced, not running your house and you are not just blind feeding your dog for any old behaviour.
Thanks for reading my bio and look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the next Ry’s Big Social Meet !!!
