"From door attacking
Shih-Tzu to mild mannered pup. Wow, we are so pleased with
the techniques and education that Born to Lead Trainer Ryan
Douglas has given us. We thought that we were doing things
right but what we discovered with Ryan’s help was that
we really weren’t. Now we have the tools to get a handle

be more delighted with Rudy’s progress and would recommend
Ryan to all dog owners. Thanks Ryan."
