Discussion prompt examples: What's happening during a BAT session, biologically?
What did I learn in Biology class that isn't actually true?
What's the difference between the nervous system and the hormonal systems, what is their function, and what does that have to do with BAT??
What should I know about dog biology that would help me use BAT more effectively?
How does our human view of the world differ from our dogs, and how might that affect behavior?
What are some important differences between dogs and humans that relate to learning and behavior? What do they have in common?

He is a Professor of Biology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. An award-winning teacher, he gives talks about dog biology around the country. His scientific research is mostly on turtle ecology.
Tim recently published a popular book entitled Dog Biology: From gonads, through guts, to ganglia, available in English and German. Three border collies allow him to cohabitate in their home.
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).
Tim Lewis PhD brought up valuable information on both epigenetics and behavior. Excited to read his book!

Ten stars! I quickly purchased Tim's book before they sold out. Without a clue about the scientific significance behind it, I have always asked new clients what their dog's stool looks like. Tim shared a plethora of information considering gut health, hormones, and neurological responses. Most interesting was learning about how the environment of the pregnant dog affects the pups. I've listened twice. Third time will be for note taking. Fabulous!Read Less

Science is important AND research papers ARE difficult to wade through for the average person to critically analyze. It is wonderful to hear experts in their field have conversations and raise questions that don’t necessarily have answers today. I like how questions generate more questions that can keep us aware and observing. Why I am a dog training profession is because of the “science-based” practices we follow. At the same time, I liked the empowerment of making your own observations of individual cases, recording videos, and keeping the conversations going with peers since the research may lag. This webinar embraces questioning, new approaches and facts. I admit I geek out about the biology. The presentation of the hard-core biology was clear, even though it took me a while to work through it. I wanted to slow down and really comprehend what this expert was offering. Highly recommend this.Read Less
