I Love Curiosity!

Professional dog trainers have questions about BAT, and I do too. For example, what about ethics and the quadrants? I am fascinated by animal behavior and with the inquisitive mind of a mathematician, I'm all about questions.

  • What is Return of Fear and how do you prevent it?

  • How do you combine BAT and other techniques?

  • How do choose when to apply BAT?

  • How is Behavior Analysis applied in BAT?

  • What other research supports BAT?

If you're a behavior geek like me, you'll love this video!

Or at least, I hope so. How does one measure love? But I digress.

  • 1.5 Hour Video

    Part 6 of the Empowered Animals DVD series filmed by Tawzer, now available as streaming dog training video. This video takes a scientific approach to the underpinnings of BAT to help you understand and explain it more fully.

  • Not for your clients!

    This geeky stuff is fun for trainers, but please just use everyday lingo with your clients. Having said that, you knowing the science is extremely useful, and helps you know what to apply when.

  • Bonus Material

    You'll also get PDF notes of the Powerpoint from the presentation and a quick quiz for understanding. The quiz also allows us to issue a certificate if you are a professional and need CEUs.

    1.5 CCPDT CEUs, 1.5 IAABC CEUs

Instructor

Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Author

Grisha Stewart MA, CPDT-KA, KPACTP

I'm a collaborative dog trainer, author, podcaster, international presenter, and keynote speaker based in Oregon, USA. I enjoy developing empowering approaches to dog socialization and everyday manners.

I'm fascinated by animal behavior, somatic awareness, and psychology. I'm passionate about wholehearted living for all beings, including dogs with a history of aggression, frustration, or fear as well as puppies and my other favorite species: humans.

My Behavior Adjustment Training technique (BAT 2.0 and the new BAT 3.0) is used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. A conservative calculation is that well over 200,000 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. In 2010, I started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers about BAT. In 2014 I developed BAT 2.0 and also started my online dog training and behavior school, which now has over 100 classes from my favorite emotionally intelligent dog experts. My new podcast, The Lesson is Love launches in 2023.

As an outgoing introvert, I enjoy traveling to cooperative conferences and love teaching about dogs online. I refresh my batteries by savoring life in the woods with my husband (Tom), Labrador (Joey), cat (Garbanzo aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther"), and Little Brown Dog (Zuki).
