Where is dog training headed?

Dog training practices and philosophies are always changing based on science and innovative techniques from trainers and behaviorists in the field. Change is hard, but if you have an idea of where you might be going, it's a little easier!

You probably already know that the dog training field is changing from old-school punishment-based training to a more modern approach. Over time, however, we're also evolving beyond straight positive reinforcement to looking at our reinforcers themselves, looking at which behaviors we train, etc., with an eye to meeting the needs of the individual dog.

Recorded as a live webinar on November 10, 2015 (so the future is now!

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).
