Ronald's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me to overcome the challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis.

Ronald's story

First of all I would like to thank Kiva, and My lenders / the Kiva Community for the 1st,(First Loan). The first Kiva loan has afforded me with much needed training equipment used for various types of training, and a commercial drivers license. I have been able to afford marketing strategies, a new website, and establish a new company name / LLC. I have in place legal representation in all the necessary areas of my business, and have embarked on a mission of helping to reduce the number of shelter dogs. The first Kiva Loan has afforded me the necessities to build a solid business relationship with local, and national dog affiliated businesses. I was born and raised in New York City. However, I spent most of my very early childhood down South with my Grandmother, traveling back and forth between New York, and the southern tip of Georgia. Coming from A Southern Baptist mother, that felt it was best for a child to experience early childhood growing up with a “Better Set” of values , and morals,, I was sent to “Mama”, (my beloved grandmother). My trips / stays down south ended in my early adolescence, and New York became my permanent place of residence. Whether or not I was in New York, or down South I cannot recall a time in my life that there was an absence of a family dog. I immediately became intrigued with their learning capacities, and began training my own dogs, and local neighbor‘s dogs as a novice / armchair trainer. Eventually I attended college in Boston, MA. to study Animal Behavior Sciences, and then on to two different accredited Dog Training Schools in Boston, and New York. I acquired licensing/ certifications as a Certified Dog Trainer (CDT), Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT), Certified Master Dog Trainer (CMDT), and Certified Canine Specialist (CCS). For the past 30 plus years I have been training dogs. I have established a solid Client Base. I am now directly involved with many reputable dog training institutions, and organizations. I have expanded my already established services, and now “In-Home Personalized Canine Training Services” to every area of New York, and New York’s tri-state area. I am recognized for what clients have dubbed as using “A Unique & Boutique Approach”, and applauded for using the most Humane Methods in the dog training industry.
