Ryan’s love from animals stems from the time he was born. Growing up, dogs have always been an important part of his family. Currently his family has two Golden Retrievers, Max and Daisy, and they also have two cats, Roo and Luka. As you can imagine, Golden Retrievers are his favorite breed, but he really loves all dogs and enjoys spending time with them. 

When taking care of and working with animals, Ryan believes that the most important part of making a connection with them is earning their trust and respect. He feels that animals also have a direct effect to how he’s feeling, he finds that being around them usually brings a sense of calmness.

Outside of work, Ryan enjoys staying active! He likes to play soccer, fish, hike, run and go camping. He lives for the summers because he gets to be outside and do what he loves most!
