In 2009, Ryan decided to attend grooming school to pursue a career in the pet grooming industry. Shortly after completion of the program, Ryan decided to open Mission Bay Pet Salon and Wash. He felt that his love of animals and his passion of interacting with people would be something that he could bring to Pacific Beach and neighboring communities. Since opening their doors in 2010, Mission Bay Pet Salon has groomed thousands of dogs and cats and has built a strong reputation as a clean, safe and inviting atmosphere for both the owners and their pets.
