Ryan Matthews is a veteran, dog trainer, and cancer survivor. He got his start as a dog trainer in the US Army where he served as a dog handler during deployments to Iraq.
As a person, Ryan has seen his highs and very low lows. As a kid, he became a drug dealer. A situation where one of his friends tried to kill him put him on the path to the US Army.
Once in the Army, Ryan decided that he wanted to work with K9s. He perfected his skills as a dog handler during his service, and when he got out, he decided to become a full time professional dog trainer.
At the height of his career, Ryan was stricken with Cancer. Though treatment helped him to overcome his disease, his mental anguish was still there. After losing his temper, Ryan lost his dogs and his business.
Now Ryan is on the path to redemption and he's making his dog training available world wide with World of Dog Training. Ryan came onto the Warrior Soul Podcast to talk about his life, his battles, and how he's come back against the odds.
