Inhoud 2-daags seminar:
CONCEPT TRAINING – A look at how we can take animals to a higher level of learning. This seminar will cover a brief overview of various applications of concept training then focus on one or more of the following concepts: modifiers, matching to sample, mimicry, adduction, or counting. The foundation for all concept training is similar. This lecture can focus on one or more concepts. Single topic focus: 1.5 up to 2.0 hours, additional concepts 1 to 1.5 hours more per concept.
COMPLEX TOOLS – This seminar is an overview of advanced concepts for experienced trainers, including an examination of misconceptions, science, and practical applications for the selected tools. Tools might include No Reward Markers (NRM), Recall Signals, End of Session Signals, Keep Going Signals (KGS), Jackpots, Timeouts, Least Reinforcing Scenarios (LRS), and Behavior Chains. 3.5 – 4 hours
AGGRESSION – There are two topics; a broad overview at Ken’s approach to aggression management and reduction and/or a review of popular aggression treatment techniques and Ken’s analysis of these techniques (CAT, BAT, Click to Calm, and others).
Ken’s approach 1.5 hours, Analysis of other techniques 2.5 hours.
BECOMING A TOP TRAINER – A look at the recipe or plan I have used in teaching trainers to be trainers. When is a trainer ready to learn a new concept? What does it take to put all of the theory and techniques together? Although there are many ways to accomplish this, I will share my recipe. 1.5 up to 3.0 hours.
Philosophy Ken Ramirez Seminars:
“We take a different approach than most animal training consultants. We focus on the people more than the animals because we believe that by concentrating on training people, the people we train will be able to succeed at training and caring for their animals.
In each seminar we conduct, within the first 30 minutes we will state, “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”
Our mission is to enhance humane animal care by focusing on improved caregiver skills through knowledge, practice, and the use of positive reinforcement tools. We desire to provide people with the skills and tools to train and care for animals as humanely, positively, and successfully as possible. Our approach is to combine the science of behavior with decades of practical experience to give people the resources they need to provide optimal animal care and training.
