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.

We run it a little differently every time, but I like to cover a special topic or practice skills with dogs and have some 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!

  • 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 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).
