Join Ken Ramirez for a full weekend seminar that will examine core training principles that are often forgotten or overlooked, including some practical skills games that help build trainers. These will include an understanding the role of science, exploring various shaping techniques, the use of desensitization, the role of targeting in training, and a look at the importance of consistency and reinforcement strategies. After setting the table with some basic training skills that every trainer should know and understand, he will move in the opposite direction and discuss complex and seldom used or understood tools such as: Keep Going Signals, End of Session Signals, No Reinforcement Markers, Jackpots, Recall signals, and so many others. In addition to sharing these basic and advanced tools, Ken will discuss some of the unique ways these tools can be used in distinctive and diverse ways in conservation projects and to aid in consulting work. Complex Tools – This seminar will look at a potpourri of topics that are sometimes not explored in great depth. Ken will look at the practical aspects of these tools and look at the science behind each of them. These may include, but are not limited to: Keep Going Signals, End of Session Signals, No Reward Markers, Least Reinforcing Scenario, Recall Signals, Jackpots, Behavior Chains, Release Signals, Differential Reinforcement Strategies, and Adduction. Social Animals – Ken has worked with exotic animals for more than 35 years and used specific strategies for introducing dangerous animals to each other and followed strict protocols which assisted in teaching these animals to live successfully together. In 2013, he took on a dog project with a number of aggressive and reactive dogs and used the same techniques he had used with exotic animals to teach these problematic shelter dogs to live together. This seminar will outline the strategies and techniques needed to train animals to live and work together. Conservation T
