2 Dachshunds and a Dutchie
PHD in Chemistry
Now a student of getting bit
He fishes, he hunts, he gets bit. After spending years working towards his PHD in chemistry, Matt has shifted his academic mind towards the art form of being a decoy. RYP is lucky to have such a dedicated and brave individual ready to assist with developing confident and stable bite dogs for both civilians and LE/Military.
