Setting up safe scenarios to promote social skills.

This video is for anyone working on preventing or rehabilitating reactivity. You'll see several live demonstrations and explanations of the Behavior Adjustment Training technique for dog (re)socialization. Whether you are familiar with BAT 2.0 or not, this video will help you see how to put this effective tool to work.

This is a short introduction to BAT set-ups, with variations. It should be enough for professionals to start implementing BAT if you have also watched Walk With Me to learn the leash skills. For an in-depth guide, I also recommend the BAT 101 course.

  • Barking, lunging, growling on walks.

  • Fighting with other dogs in the home.

  • Avoiding or shutting down around people or dogs.

  • Biting or barking at people.

  • Also useful for socializing PUPPIES and all dogs!

  • Included with Diamond & Gold Memberships (see below).

Taking dog empowerment to the next level.

When dogs have a sense of safety, appropriate social skills emerge.

  • 1.5 Hour Video

    Part 5 of the Empowered Animals DVD series, now available as streaming dog training video. I recommend you watch the "Talk With Me," "Walk with Me" and "Survival Skills" videos first to really understand this technique. Pro trainers should at least watch "Walk With Me."

  • What's new in 2.0?

    Originally developed in 2009, BAT 2.0 is the newly updated version that is simpler, faster, and easier for dogs and people to do. P.S. For biting/fighting: if you aren't a dog trainer, I still recommend you hire a CBATI or local positive trainer familiar with BAT.

  • 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 CPDT CEUs.

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).
