Who Is Canine United?
Why Canine United? Ryan - Owner, Certified Dog Trainer

Ryan is a father and full-time Certified Dog Trainer that attended the International Academy Of Canine Trainers locally in Delta B.C, and graduated with an almost perfect grade of 98.6% overall. Ryan has his Level 1 and Level 2 and is a Canine Behaviour Specialist. Everything was in a classroom setting, local animal shelters, as well as in-home and on-site personal client environments, and included monitoring and assisting with Puppy Classes, Obedience Classes (levels 1, 2 and 3), Dog Agility, and Doggy Daycare. Absolutely nothing was online, and the International Academy of Canine Trainers is a fully registered institution with the BC Ministry of Advanced Education. Ryan is very involved in continuing his own education, keeping up-to-date, and furthering everyone's knowledge in the field.
