Days packed with knowledge from one of the world's leading animal trainers KEN RAMIREZ  from the USA


Day 1 (Friday) Attention targeted animal trainers, but everyone can participate

  • Working with Shy or Skittish Animals

    Trainers often have to work with an animal that is uncomfortable around people or is reluctant to participate in training.
    How do you handle it?, and where do you start? What strategies are most effective in drawing an animal out of its shell and gaining its trust?

  • Aggression Treatments & Management Strategies
    Aggression is a constant concern for trainers of domestic and exotic animals, as it is a natural part of all animals’ repertoires. This part of the seminar focuses on an exploration of the various popular aggression-treatment plans, their specific effectiveness, and the underlying science behind each of them. Ken will then share the step-by-step strategies and techniques he uses for reducing aggression.

  • Consulting Skills

    Ken likes to tell people that a successful animal training consultant doesn’t need to be good with animals! He says this in jest, of course. To be a good animal trainer, one does need to understand training and be good with animals. However, sometimes the most important skills needed to solve behavioral problems are not animal-training skills. People skills, observational skills, and organizational skills can be the keys to finding solutions to behavioral problems. Before tackling a behavioral problem with a household pet or a large zoo animal several factors need to be considered. This presentation will focus on those factors that need to be addressed first when trying to solve animal-related problems. A review of various case studies will help to reveal how to start out with the right tools and why animal skills may not be the only talent required.

Day 2 (Saturday) 

  • Reinforcement Strategies

    Reinforcement is the key to successful training as most trainers already know!However, there are many different reinforcement strategies and reinforcement options available to us as coaches.We will explore both the science behind these strategies and successful methods of implementing different types of reinforcement into an exercise program. We will also discuss techniques so you can assess for yourself which approach you choose, with succes.

  • Handling Animal Mistakes, Positively
    Ken will share his perspective of how a positive reinforcement trainer should deal with animal errors. He will look at all of the common and popular techniques, including the use of non-reinforcement markers and time-outs, and will offer more positive alternatives, particularly the use of redirection.

  • Avoiding Common Trainer Errors

    This part of the seminar will focus on the most common mistakes and short-cuts trainers take, and the reasons trainers are often tempted to go in the “wrong direction.” Nearly two dozen common mistakes and solutions will be discussed, from “looking for the quick fix” to a problem to a trainer’s desire to ask for a behavior “just one more time” or “use a behavior before its training is complete.” Additionally Ken will examine some of the myths, common beliefs, and misunderstandings about training—exploring where those beliefs developed and how they can cause training to get off track.

Day 3 (Sunday) 

  • Choice and Control: Avoiding Chaos

    What do trainers mean when they say they "give their animals choice?" What does it mean to allow animals to control the results? If we do, how do we avoid creating chaos? How do we ensure that working animals do what is expected of them?
    Ken will discuss his approach to dealing with these issues and how he works with his clients to deal with real-world distractions.

  • Complex & Confusing Tools (Jackpots, Keep Going Signals, End of Session Signals, etc)

    There is a list of training tools that are written and talked about consistently at conferences, on discussion boards, and in Ken’s consulting and teaching. In this part of the seminar, Ken will look at the group of training tools (including Keep-Going Signals, End-of-Session Signals, No-Reward Markers, Recall Signals, Jackpots, and Behavior Chains) through the dual lenses of science and practical application. Through these lenses, trainers will gain a clear and practical understanding of the tools and the scientific basis of each, as well as of Ken’s professional use (or non-use) of them. This information will help trainers inform their own training plans and practices.

  • Concept training - Quantity Recognition

    Concept training has become an area of ​​specialization for Ken.
    Ken will give a brief overview of the idea of ​​conceptual learning and then take us on a closer look at one of his latest research projects - teaching a dog to count.!

The seminar is for anyone who wants to learn more about training animals
NOTE: The seminar will take place in English!

Passionate dog geek

Are you a passionate dog geek who loves to learn more and really delve into and understand animal behavior in order to be able to adapt and change the training that way?
If so, the seminar is for you.

Professional animal trainer

As a professional, you may often find yourself with animals that, for one reason or another, exhibit behavior that we consider problematic. At this seminar, you will get more tools in your toolbox to be able to analyze and solve problems and help the students and animals you work with.

Veterinarians, Veterinary nurses, Boarding staff, Animal sitters etc.:

In all interactions with animals, learning occurs. Both for the animal and for us humans.
This learning in the animal happens, regardless of whether we want it to or not, and there is always a connected feeling and a behavior that reflects the learning that has taken place.

"Animals deserve the best care we can possibly provide. Training should not be considered a luxury that is only provided if there is time; it is an essential part of good animal care. Just as one would never consider developing an animal care program without a veterinary component, a nutritional component, a social component, and an environmental component, nobody should consider caring for an animal without a behavioral management component integrated into the program”
