Great information

I'm trying to finally transition from petsitting/dog walking to training. There is a lot of great information in this series.

Are you frustrated with your dog inside? I once had a client whose dog jumped up to the TOP of the refridgerator to steal bread! Dogs make messes, chew furniture, bite, howl, and can make your life a nightmare. It doesn't have to be that way, and you don't need to yell or punish your dog to make it better.

There’s a common misunderstanding that dogs just know how to do what we want, and when they don’t they’re bad dogs. But they’re doing their best, just being dogs! It's a translation and motivation problem.

When you learn why dogs do what they do, and what your dog needs from you, it makes it so much easier to get on the same page and enjoy time together.

What you will learn

Your dog can't wait for you to get going!

  1. Untangle the way you think about dogs, seeing behavior as a way for a dog to meet their needs.
  2. Strategies for housetraining, destruction, and other common problems that work for you AND your dog.
  3. Bring peace to your home, for more snuggles and good times.

Who is this course for?

Anyone with a dog! This class by world-renowned dog trainer and author Grisha Stewart, MA, CPDT-KA, KPACTP is designed for people with new puppies, rescue dogs, dogs that eat furniture, and dogs that sometimes hump your mother-in-law's legs. Also good for professional dog trainers and dog sitters.

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).
