Like an Audio Book, but better!

I know I’m not the only one with a stack of unread books. There’s even a Japanese word for it: “Tsundoku” is the shelved (or piled) books that are patiently waiting to be read.

That’s why I created this brand new series, where authors read their own books on video and answer your questions by live Q&A. The coolest part of this is that books are often out of date by the moment they’re printed, so this is a way for authors to make some comments with updated information as they read.

My BAT 2.0 book on dog reactivity is the first of many such book readings in the Author’s Book Club (also available in paperback and ebook). Feel free to email me with requests for other dog authors that you want to hear (and see) reading. You can sign up for these individually or get them all with a Diamond membership (and any of our other classes, too).

I’ll be issuing the recordings weekly and then you can ask me any questions you want. They’ll be available in video format as well as audio-only, like a podcast, so you can listen to them on your walks or as you drive.

There are some visuals in the book that you’ll be able to see best if you have the eBook (or a paper copy) so I recommend getting the bundle that includes the eBook (this is also included with the Diamond membership). Options are below.

We meet on 3 Thursdays at 10 am Pacific, July 22, August 19, and September 30. I started out live on July 22 in which I read the first 10 pages and answered questions. The other two sessions will be Q&A sessions. I’ll release video/audio recordings of each chapter as I finish them. It’s not too late to sign up!

I already love this series SO much. Too many dog books are not on audible, and as a neurodivergent person who has a reeeeally tough time with long-form reading, but who easily absorbs info through audio format, I appreciate this series so much. When I really need to, I can dig deep and read a book (and I have read - well, most of - BAT 2.0!), but it’s really really hard to make myself do it. It even borders on aversive at times. I’m not alone in this, including among pro dog trainers, so I predict this series will make reading all the greats much more accessible to a lot of people. I greatly appreciate the lengths Grisha goes to to be accessible to people, financially, from a learning standpoint, and otherwise! Thanks a bunch!

About the Instructor

Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Author

Grisha Stewart MA, CPDT-KA, KPACTP

I'm a dog trainer, author, and international speaker based in Oregon, USA. I enjoy developing creative, empowering approaches to dog socialization and everyday manners. My most recent development is the leash belay technique, which leverages physics to allow handlers to comfortably bring pulling dogs to a gentle stop.

I'm an animal behavior geek, passionate about wholehearted living for all beings, including humans and dogs with a history of aggression, frustration, or fear. My Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT 2.0) technique is now used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. A conservative calculation is that well over 100,000 people have learned about BAT so far.

I have always loved teaching. I earned a Master's in mathematics and taught college courses, but I found my true calling in dog training. I have been teaching dog training and behavior since 2003, started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers in 2010, and started an online dog training school in 2014. My partner and I currently live with Garbanzo (aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther") and Zuki (the sweetheart of a dog pictured here).
