Show Notes

In this episode of the Road To Growth podcast, we are pleased to introduce you to Ryan Matthews. Ryan, a decorated veteran, began his dog training career in 2002 in the US Army training and handling elite Military Working Dogs (MWDs). With his beloved trainees, Ryan performed bite protection, bomb threat sweeps, secret service missions and combat deployment to Iraq with Army K-9, Zito. He successfully worked with Special Forces, Army SWAT and Infantry units with his trained companion, Zito who ultimately saved lives over their period of service.

Following his passion for dogs and seeing them unleashing their potential, he is releasing a new dog training book titled “Train Your Good Dog to be Great.” To compliment the publication, Ryan has also created an eLearning platform with more than 130 supportive dog training videos. In addition, Ryan has recently taken on a new health project aimed at improving the lives of dogs. His vision is to free dogs of pain and reduce the likelihood of life threatening illnesses through his new line of natural canine supplements.

As a professional pet dog trainer Ryan has successfully trained over 3,000 dogs, with a 99% success rate. Ryan is passionate about bridging the gap of communication between dogs and their owners. He feels when people can better understand their dogs, it enhances the lives and increases the bond of both people and dogs.
