Meet the Instructors

Taught by service dog trainer and child safety specialist Vanesa Vizuete of Helping Paws NW, with some tidbits on consent for contact from me (Grisha).

Service Dog Trainer

Vanesa Vizuete, CPDT-KA

I am a professional pet dog trainer, service dog trainer, and international speaker. I am passionate about educating families around the world to teach their children life skills like empathy, consent, respect, and healthy boundaries through the daily interactions they have with their dog.

My mission is to promote healthy interactions to reduce the number of kids bitten by a familiar dog and lower the incidence of dogs being re-homed or euthanized.

My "I Speak Woof!!" classes don't just teach the entire family how to be safe around dogs; these lessons make a lifetime impression and can help children grow into adults with healthy boundaries and compassion.

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. My passion projects are grief tending, community singing, and woodturning. I enjoy developing empowering approaches to help dogs and people live in harmony.

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 book 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 this online dog training and behavior school, the Grisha Stewart Academy which now has over 140 classes from my favorite emotionally intelligent dog and human behavior experts. I also co-host a podcast at The Lesson is Love.

As an outgoing introvert, I enjoy teaching at cooperative conferences and am so grateful to be able to offer classes about dogs online. I refresh my batteries by singing, expressing grief in community, and savoring life in the woods with my husband (Tom), Labrador (Joey), cat (Garbanzo aka "Adventure Kitty" and "Baby Panther"), and Little Brown Dog (Zuki).
