Introduction: **PLEASE CALL AT NINE 045957438 OR Schedule training at RuffHDT.com** Featured on WUSA9, C-Span, and at the National Press Club, Ryan is gaining recognition for his amazing skill in being able to connect with the owner and the dog to ensure a great relationship for both, the dog and human. I like to help owners connect with their dogs. I make it so you can understand in human terms how your behavior either positively or negatively affects your companion. I make it my personal mission to make sure that you have a much better understanding of how the relationship between you and your dog should be. I also lay the foundation for building a trusting, positive relationship between you and your dog. I understand what you're going through and will guide you to happiness. It's time for you to take your life back and enjoy your dog.

I was really worried because my Dottie tested the trainer...He nipped him but within 10+15 min he had him eating out of his hands and doing what he directed. He was very gentle but firm with me and how I lent to my dogs behavior. Absolutely a great training with a great trainer!

Ryan was awesome. He was available the same day that we decided we wanted to hire a pro to help us with our sweet pup with pretty bad and worsening leash reactivity. He was punctual, professional, and most importantly, helped us get an immediate handle on the issue. Definitely worth the consultation. If any other issues arise, we will be sure to contact Ryan and go with Ruff House Dog Training!

Ryan was great. I thought our dog was untrainable, but we made a good start on improvements during his visit. Ryan was very easy to work with and trained our whole family in new methods with a stubborn Dalmatian. I highly recommend him. I also like that we jumped right in on making improvements.

It has been just 2 days since I worked with Ruff House, but even that same day I noticed a dramatic improvement in my dog's behavior. She used to run me, and now she hears my commands an does not bark desperately for attention. I can't wait to try this out while at a yappy hour or when we encounter other dogs. I wish I had done this sooner before medicating my dog or using other ineffective trainers.

The only regret I have about my experience with Ryan from Ruff House Training is not hiring him sooner. In one session, Ryan made a huge change in our lives. My pup is close to 3 years old and had been showing serious signs of aggression. I avoided strangers and other dogs at all costs and having guests over was chaos. I had tried applying all techniques found in my neverending research and nothing worked until Ryan came in. I've been able to put to use everything I learned with Ryan and the change is drastic. I can walk my pup through all kinds of people now and even have people approach me as he sits. Another dog can walk beside us and he will mind his business instead of aggressively barking or lunging. I would not wait another minute if you're looking to book an expert in this field. Ryan is your guy. Thanks so much Ryan for making such a great impact.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to see what the issue is in their current setting. Most times, it's not the dog that's the problem. I want to understand what you are doing so I can focus my effort on fixing it.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I love dogs. I believe they are extremely smart and loyal. I don't believe in "bad dogs" and I have taken on the responsibility to eliminate the mindset of people regarding "vicious breeds".

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with pups from 3 months to 9 years old. I've worked with rescues and aggressive behaviors, dogs that can't walk on a leash, dog aggressive dogs, and more. I'm not afraid of a challenge, I welcome it and we have fun working through the solution together.
