I found this book very informative. This book broke training methods and techniques down to a beginners level, but went indepth enough for the expert trainer. Having the combination of papers and forum talks from IMATA conferences and information about training marine mammals made this a very good all around reference book. I recommend this book to experienced trainers, novice trainers, students doing research and people who just want to know about marine mammal training.

Format: Paperback
This book is the Bible for anyone who wants to go into marine mammal training. It provides info on training techniques and vocabulary, types of behaviors trained, steps in training, articles written by several trainers around the country on puzzling subjects, and much more. I can't begin to describe how helpful this book has been to me. It is written in a very upfront and understandable fashion. It's easy to read and you find yourself reading it over and over again. I carry this book with me wherever I go. A definte must-have! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

If you think you know anything about animal (dog) training, you might be surprised at how much you still have to learn after reading this book. If you are serious about training, this book is a "must read". If you think the book is too long, then you cannot possibly be a serious trainer. Ken- thanks for sharing your knowledge. You have given us the greatest gift of all.

If you have an interest in animal training then you will find this book a valuable addition to your personal or professional library.
This book is a compilation of columns and previous articles by professional trainers AND clear explanations concerning basic and advanced training concepts.
Ken has taught animal training to students and trainers and has been very active in the marine animal training community for a number of years. As a result, his effort in compiling this book will give you insights into both wild and domestic animal training, operant conditioning, application of training priniciples, and clarification of terms.
As someone who has been in the wild and domestic animal training field for over 22 years I can honestly say you would be doing yourself a favor to add this one to your library.

Ken has written a book that is packed with information, science, history, and application in a format that is enjoyable to read. There is not a more comprehensive treatment of positive reinforcement than Animal Training.

I took an animal training course for my Master's degree with the author. This book is the best in my opinion and has wonderful examples with exotic animals. Ken Ramirez is seriously a training guru. It is also very easy to apply the information in this book to pets and domestic animals.
