Life Lessons After Facing Death with Ryan Matthews

I am so fortunate to meet some great people and Ryan is definitely one of these really fascinating people with so much to share. We talked about dogs and how we can apply some of the same training to our own lives and growth. Here are just a few things we talked about:

  • RCTR dog training strategies (repetition, consistency, timing and reward)
  • We teach others how to behave with our body language and through verbal communication
  • When training a dog, it’s not about you. It’s about seeing your dog and understanding their needs (applies really well to humans too) 
  • Have you ever experienced unconditional love?
  • Are you happy with how you show up?
  • 7 keys to personal growth – check them out!

Ryan Matthews, a decorated veteran took his experience training elite Army K-9’s to the civilian pet dog training market and built a dog training empire making close to a million dollars in 2.5 years. He successfully trained over 3,000 pet dogs using his proven formula that works for any dog of any age. Despite Ryan’s success, his childhood trauma, along with combat PTSD (deployment to Iraq with Army K-9 Zito,) caused him to become a workaholic. Resulting in multiple near-death experiences. Currently, Ryan is a published author of “The Art of Dog Training”, as well as an inspirational speaker giving talks on PTSD and transformation, to include a TEDx talk “Overcoming PTSD With Dog Training Techniques.”
