My name is Grisha Stewart and I'm best known among dog trainers for developing Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT), a humane technique for dog aggression, frustration, and fear. I also love teaching all kinds of life skills, so this online school covers a lot of different subjects.
Through my international dog seminars, DVDs, books, and my in-person and online training schools, I've helped hundreds of thousands of dogs and their people thrive.
When I transitioned from college math to being a professional dog trainer in 2003, I was excited to use positive reinforcement to communicate to dogs what I wanted. Control is a basic mammalian need and I really liked the sense of control it gave me, in a positive way.
But as I matured as a dog trainer and a person, my focus shifted to ensuring that dogs still get to be dogs, that we find ways to live together that meet their needs and ours. That's why I developed BAT, and why I use positive reinforcement mindfully, in ways that directly benefit the animal, like teaching cooperative care and consent. [click for my bio]
I created this site with all-inclusive memberships to help dog trainers and pet lovers have affordable access to effective, humane modern dog training techniques. Courses can also be purchased one at a time.
This online dog school is more than just education. It's an international community with some of the world's top animal professionals. I'm teaching several classes and I'm thrilled that many classes are also taught by my favorite dog behavior experts from all over the globe.
We learn and grow together, to encourage empowered, trustworthy, wholehearted living with dogs.

I really enjoyed the ideas in this seminar. While it can be used for dogs of all sizes, I think these ideas (particularly the waist belt systems) will be particularly helpful for the very strong pullers or large dogs that lunge explosively. Sometimes I see clients having a hard time handling dogs with these tendencies during BAT sessions, so I think that these leash options will make it easier on their hands and bodies. Thank you for putting together this seminar and sharing these ideas!Read Less
