The Born to Lead K-9 Academy
My approach can save you well over a thousand dollars! Sending your dog away to work with a trainer can easily cost $1500 or more for simple
obedience. The stress induced by sending your dog away to be trained with harsh, aversive techniques can cause unwanted psychological and physical symptoms. In my 20 years of experience, I have NEVER met a dog that was well behaved simply because he knew
obedience commands. 100% of the adult dogs I see
are well versed in obedience, yet they all have
behavioral issues. If simple obedience is the answer,
why do all of our dogs have these problems? Why pay
for multiple visits when you can
see real results in 1? Furthermore,
why pay someone else to bond with your dog? My training
will make you more knowledgeable, more
confident and more successful than ever in effectively
managing your dog’s behavior. My easy to apply methods will transform
your dog into the dog you've always wanted.
My goal is simple. I want to be the last dog trainer
you'll ever need to hire for any reason!
Here are some clients who agree:
"We have had
other dog trainers in the past and Ryan Douglas is far
and away the best. The techniques he's taught us have
been invaluable and have yielded immediate results as
well as shown us how to make long-term lifestyle and
household changes to improve our dogs' behavior. If
you are unhappy with your dog's behavior or just want
to learn ways to improve your relationship with your
dog, Ryan is an investment that will pay huge dividends."

is a knowledgeable and caring dog behaviorist who generously
volunteers his time and talent to help the dogs in our
care. Ryan is courteous and dependable and has provided
us with insightful evaluations of several dogs to help
us ensure we place them in a home befitting of their
temperament, breed type and activity needs. BFPA is
fortunate to call Ryan a friend and fellow rescue advocate
and we highly recommend his training services."

or Directors, Raleigh NC
was a gift sent from heaven as far as I'm concerned.
I had the feeling that my 2-year pup, Cooper, hated
me! Every time I went near him or called to him, he
would wet the floor and slink off to his crate. I treated
him like gold, never yelled at him or hurt him in any
way. Ryan helped me to understand that I had actually
encouraged and even reinforced Cooper's behavior. He
showed me a variety of techniques for communicating
with my pet and within just a few days, there was a
change in his behavior! The change in only 3 weeks is
nothing less than amazing! He has not slinked a way
from me even once, is excited and happy to see me! Ryan
has got to be the BEST trainer in the world. He seems
to have a real connection with dogs and a true understanding
of why they behave the way that they do. I couldn't
recommend him more highly!
-Anne D'Agostino, Wake Forest NC
"I called Ryan
Douglas with Born to Lead K9 Academy as I was having
difficulty with my Doberman’s dominance issues.
I quickly learned how to assert myself properly and
become a respected leader. Now, my Doberman follows
my every command. He no longer chews on objects, he
stays off furniture, he eats when I choose to feed him,
he eliminates on command and walks on the leash without
pulling. He is a very socialized dog with adults and
children as well as other dogs of all breeds."
-Cathy Casey, Garner NC
