Spend a weekend at The Ranch playing games with Ken Ramirez. Games? Yes, Training Games. You will be playing the training games Ken has created based on a lifetime of experience helping trainers sharpen their skills. Through these games, you will enhance your own training skills and develop a deeper and more flexible repertoire of ways to build and develop skills in others. In this seminar, you will develop skills that are rarely taught, such as training in protected contact, a critical skill both for dog trainers working with aggressive and reactive animals and in many zoological and medical contexts. Classic games that are used to experience successive approximations and shaping, such as Karen Pryor’s pioneering Training Game, will reveal new levels of insight through unique variations. You will work on physical training skills with a series of games that helps build competency in these skills and, simultaneously, illustrates their criticality. You will explore the use of table games to predict and plan for the challenges associated with complex training objectives (e.g., training a lengthy chain, teaching a complex “concept” like match-to-sample), among other goals. You will even learn how to use table games to help someone safely experience the impact of aversives on training/learning. When you join Ken Ramirez at The Ranch for a weekend of fun and (training) games, you will experience all of this—and so much more. Game On! Who Should Take This Seminar? This course was created for experienced trainers and instructors who wish to enhance their own training skills as well as their teaching skills. Ken has also found that trainers with less experience also benefit from and enjoy this course as they develop their own skills.
