Edwin Ramirez

Edwin Ramirez is a professional animal trainer located in Louisville, Kentucky.  After accuiring a cosmetology degree and undergoing an animal grooming apprenticeship, Edwin realized his passion was not just about the exterior of dogs, but the mental process that occurred within. Edwin went on to a dog training school in Ohio where he learned traditional training methods from array of experienced trainers.  For almost two years to follow, he used these training methods but never quite felt comfortable with them, and so set off to work and study on his own terms.

Edwin founded Edwin's Canine Academy LLC in 2014 and adopted force free training methods that he continues to use and master.  The learning never stops for both humans and dogs! It is now Edwin's mission to share the knowledge of humane training methods with the world.

Edwin now specializes in canine behavior modification for unruly and hyperactive dogs and has trained over 450 dogs for private clients, businesses, and local shelter organizations. 

Edwin can help you solve complex behavioral problems, or simply teach you the basics of obedience.
