Ken Ramirez - Secrets to Being a Great Trainer!

This seminar is designed for the both the beginner and the experienced trainer. Ken will share information about the science of learning theory, but more importantly, he will explain how to use those principles in practical every day applications. Ken’s seminars are full of practical and useful information for trainers at all levels and are designed to be both fun and inspirational.

Why Training Matters – An introduction to the non-trainer or basic beginner to the field about the philosophy behind having a training program with your pets.

Training 101 – A Practical Look at the Science– A broad overview of operant conditioning and how to apply it in practical everyday training programs.

Reinforcement Strategies–This seminar delves deeper into many topics, including a discussion of what is a “positive reinforcement trainer” and what are the basic reinforcement keys that all trainers should keep in mind. A significant part of the seminar will focus on non-food reinforcers, reinforcement variety, and evaluation of reinforcers – with particular emphasis on the importance of strategic implementation of any new reinforcement plan. This is a core competency for trainers at all levels and this seminar is suited for all training levels.

Evolution of the Modern Trainer–A Personal Perspective”– Ken will look at the changes that have taken place in the training community through his own unique personal perspective as a zoological trainer and dog trainer.
