Your Dog Questions, Answered!

Diamond Minds is a live session the Diamond community to get together to learn and get questions answered. Diamond members can ask questions about anything related to dogs - including exercises from our classes, improving life with dogs, addressing common (and uncommon challenges), how to do BAT for dog reactivity, how to blend BAT with other methods, how to be your best as a dog trainer, human life skills for thrival, etc.

I run it a little differently every time, but I like to cover a special topic or practice skills with dogs and have plenty of time for questions on any topic. This is a Zoom meeting, not a webinar, so you'll be able to turn on your camera and mic to ask questions personally, demo your training skills, or share quick videos. Text chat works too, if you'd rather.

See the title above for the next date and topic. The time is 10-11 am Pacific.

  • Suitable for professional dog trainers and pet families.

  • Feel free to have short videos ready to screen share with me for your questions. (720 resolution ideal).

  • Ask anything related to behavior!

  • Free and Available only for Diamond Members! Learn more about becoming a Diamond.

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).
