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!

I volunteer as an adoption counselor at our local municipal shelter, and am often called to help folks navigate their new relationship. There are a ton of dog books and web resources I can point to, but this is my go-to for making sure folks have the kind of trusted information they need.

Dogs and People are my passion!

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 be able to communicate to dogs what I wanted, using positive reinforcement. To be honest, I really liked the sense of control it gave me, in a positive way.

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, as their caregivers. That's why I developed BAT, and why I now use reinforcement to teach cooperative care and consent. [click for my bio]

Grisha, Bean, Zuki photoI 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 best trainers. We have a LOT of classes and keep adding more in my shiny new live case consult format. I'm teaching some 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. 

Thanks for being here! Read on to learn how to join in.

Grisha Stewart has taken it to the next level

- Victoria Stilwell, star of the television show, "It's Me Or the Dog" and author of "It's Me or the Dog: How to Have the Perfect Pet," "Train Your Dog Positively," and "Fat Dog Slim" (UK/USA)

"The results speak for themselves. Dogs that were once reactive now become more confident because Stewart gives them the life skills they need to cope more successfully in a social environment. I highly recommend BAT 2.0 to anyone who is struggling with a reactive dog or who wants to gain a better understanding of their canine companion."

An invaluable resource...

John Knuth, DogSmart (US)

...for pet parents and professionals alike. The BAT 2.0 Series is an absolute essential whether you’ve just brought home a puppy, are entering the challenging teenager years when basic training often falls apart, or need help working through a form of reactivity. The videos are packed full of information that is science\evidence based….clearly demonstrated step by step; easy to implement with my own 10 year old husky as well as countless clients along the way. I’ve recently completed Grisha’s Live Course, Aggression Case Sessions with Michael Shikashio and cannot clearly express the value of “joining” an expert like Michael live as he worked through cases with his clients. I was so impressed with this format that I signed up for the live Tween Puppy course with Grisha.

Forever grateful
