Our Guiding Principles

At Ken Ramirez Training & Consulting, we have a long tradition of breaking new ground. A clear set of principles and values have allowed us to readily adapt to changes in the animal care community without sacrificing the quality or integrity of our work. Since our founding, this has been our recipe for success.


Ken Ramirez Training & Consulting is guided by these core principles:


  • Positive Reinforcement
    We focus on finding the most positive methods of training.  We have worked with traditional training methods and are committed to helping clients make the transition to a more positive approach to working with their animals.  


  • Objectivity
    The advice we provide takes into account our clients needs and we approach each opportunity without pre-conceived notions about how to apporach a problem.  We will work within the constraints and needs of the client to help them achieve their goals.


  • Competence
    We only provide advice in areas in which we have proven expertise.  We will gladly guide you to other resources or consultants if your needs are outside of our area of expertise.


  • Confidentiality
    We treat all of the knowledge and information gained during the consulting process with the utmost confidentiality.


  • Investing in People

   We believe that great animal care comes from having well-   

   trained and skilled staff. By focusing our investment in

   people we know that the animals under our care benefit.
