Ryan AndersonInstructor: Ryan Anderson

Ryan got his start training dogs in 2005 with his Golden Retriever Tucker. His primary focus was obedience until 2007, when he was introduced to tracking. Since then, Ryan has been hooked on learning about scent theory and how to harness the natural ability of the dog to use their nose.  In 2009 Ryan received his Golden Retriever puppy, Surfer, and started scent work right away.  Since then he's recieved his TD (tracking dog) and TDX (tracking dog excellent) with Surfer.

In 2011, Ryan attended his 1st K9 Nose Work® workshop and WOW! A sport designed to teach dogs how to use their nose to search any environment. Since then, he has been instructing Canine Craze Nose Work Classes as well as training his own dog  Surfer in K9 Nose Work®.
