Sue Ryan

K9 Agility & Treibball Trainer

Sue Ryan has been a long time trainer of dogs in both Obedience and Agility. Starting back in 1981 with her first Obedience dog, she's developed an eye for reading dog's body language and understanding their thought process. These skills have allowed her to earn numerous Obedience titles, bring multiple dogs to agility finals at the USDAA Cynosport World Games, and win High in Trial and Reserve High in Trial when she attended the National Specialty, in addition to her previous contributions to the Caring Canine therapy dog program at the Mayo Clinic. When Sue isn't competing in USDAA or AKC with her current Border Collie Sly and her new upcoming Pyrenean Shepherd, Cayenne, she can be found taking relaxing hikes with her dogs out on the local trails.
