My name is Ryan Buzard. My family obtained our first show quality Ridgeback in 1986, followed by my first show dog, a Border Terrier in 1988. After training and exhibiting her to an AKC Championship, I began working with the Ridgebacks. I was thrilled in 1993 to get my first Ridgeback to raise and train from a puppy, and have been 100% committed to the breed ever since! I handled professionally in Conformation from 2001 to 2009, was a veterinary technician from 1998 to 2009, and am currently a licensed veterinarian in Arizona.
