Gilbert Trainer, Ryan Cambio

Ryan began working with dogs in 2006 in rural Ohio, volunteering for the local humane society, to work with their “unadoptable” dogs, to help them become ready for homes and their lives beyond the shelter. It was there he became more interested in the training side of things and began working with a then-small service dog organization. Over the years, Ryan has continued to further his training and behavior education and has gained a wealth of experience in multiple dog training fields, including therapy and service dog training, animal acting, and companion dog training. With his personal dogs, Ryan competes in multiple dog sports and continues animal acting. To date, his dogs have been on the front door of PetSmart’s across the country, in commercials, video shoots, and dozens of print ads. His Rottweiler, Aero, is breaking breed stereotypes all over, and is an exceptional therapy dog, working with high school students in Phoenix with special needs.
