About Ryan

Dogs have always played a part in my life, whether a pet or caring/walking those that belong to others.

At a young age I would regularly walk dogs for people around my home town, often just volunteered and to help a lot of the older neighbours. I love being outdoors and spending my time in a park with a dog only makes that time better.

I went on to study animal behaviour and zoology at an agricultural college in Berkshire which then lead me to work within the zoo world for 6 years. I have worked with a range of species which in turn has helped me understand and learn a lot about animal behaviour and what is important to make animals happy and enriched.

Having rescued dogs previously myself, I have had to deal with a range of temperaments. Working with a submissive and timid dog, to dogs that enjoy all the attention and can get grumpy at others. It has helped me use my understanding of animal behaviour and adapt my routine to ensure the dog is put first.

I now live in Archway with my girlfriend (Laila - also on Dog Buddy), and am a working stand up comedian. My days are spent on walks with my current customers and then in the house for dog playtime or chill time. I am surrounded by wonderful large open spaces and parks such as Waterlow and Whittington Park.

I have 2 regular Mon-Fri day care dogs called Murphy (2 year old Retriever) & Lincoln (7 month old Springador). They both have a great temperament and are super social/playful with other dogs. Enquiries for day care or boarding during the week should meet them both to ensure both dogs get along. (It is extremely rare they don't like other dogs).

I can provide some great walks, day time company or over night stays for your dog and would be excited to spend time with them.

    Ryan was really flexible, friendly and helped us out in a last minute pickle! Stanley had a brilliant day out and getting a vizsla tired is no easy thing! Plus we were able to follow what they got up all day on instagram. He provided a great professional service - so we’ll definitely be booking again! :-)

    Ozzy loved it! Ryan handled my shiba inu adolescent with skill and confidence. Hey enjoyed the company of Murphy and Belle and was so happy tired and hungry when he came home. Looking forward to booking again.

    Ryan looked after our German Shepard hybrid for the weekend. Ryan has a relaxed approach and our dog (Sherlock) instantly made a good pal with him. Ryan kept in touch with a couple of texts and pictures. When we collected, you could see things had gone well because Sherlock was including Ryan and Leila in the friend group (Sherlock will tend to ignore people if he feels no connection). If Sherlock could talk, I am absolutely positive he'd say, "if you go away for the weekend again, please can I stay with Ryan and Leila"
