Comprehensive coverage of the concepts, principles, and practices of modern animal training—as well as animal-training sessions—each and every day.

If you had worked for Ken Ramirez at the world-famous Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, you would have learned the skills to take you from a novice to a trusted, independent trainer over the course of six years.  Ken created this course to pack that information into one week!  You should not expect to master six years of experience in one week, of course, but you will have resource materials that will guide you your entire career.

Offered just two times per year, this 5-day course costs $1,600 and includes lunch every day, dinner on three nights, snacks and transportation to and from The Ranch from the recommended hotels, as well as training supplies and the course text.
