Under the direction of the Ark Lady (Diana L Guerrero), Ark Animals has been providing an innovative and integrative blend of animal behavior training, care & management for both wild and domestic animals since 1988 (Guerrero began her career back in 1975).

Ark Animals helps:

  • solve animal behavior problems through humane training, behavior modification, and through the use of innovative, integrative strategies and tools,
  • and empowers animal professionals and animal businesses with valuable information and strategies to help their businesses and their clients.


ARKANIMALS.COM started after I fell from the top of a zoo hay barn–injuring myself on Christmas day. It was formed after the prompting by a couple of friends who insisted I start a website upon my return to the mountains to recover.

Ark Animals first appeared on the Internet in 1995 as a private website for me (Diana L Guerrero aka the Ark Lady). It grew with topics related to wild and domestic animal behavior and training, animals careers, and contributions related to conservation. Because of the traffic had to be moved to its own domain in 1997.

Oblivious to just how innovative the Internet was (or how unique the ARKANIMALS.COM website was), I just kept writing and adding more articles and information.

The site has gone through a few transitions since that time and now includes a blog, podcast and vlog along with a wide range of articles, special reports, and other goodies.

In the end of 2013 I had to take a hiatus to recovery from toxic mold exposure and am still in that process.
