Thank you for this opportunity to learn. I was doing some techniques based on what worked with other pets but it is so good to have a focused, methodical, informed approach. I have never seen these leash skills and they make sense ! Your way with being present with the dogs and owners is very reassuring both in person and in the videos.

What an amazing value for this loose leash walking 21-day challenge. I fully endorse and encourage others to take this course. It's sure to have value for everyone and the short videos are very clear and cover numerous behaviors. I was able to start training with my dogs in real time from day one. Add on the extras that cover pulling, barking, jumping up, etc., and its only day seven. Awesome!

The 21 day challenge is great but it is too much material. 2-3 exercises a day, every day doesn't leave much if any room for trouble shooting or a break. After week 2 we fell back, reset and decided to proceed at a much slower pace. For us we have found that practicing only 1 exercise a day and restricting our practice to 3 days a week is yielding much better results.

This was an exceptional class on loose leash walking. I wasn't sure if I would learn new things after working with rescue dogs for over 20 years and going to lots of trainings, but I did! The Glimmer exercises are so important to learn for both you and and your dog. And learning about the Balance Harness and the benefits of it has made walking a more joyful experience for my GSD, Kali. There were many other lessons that are helpful too. Lessons are presented in a way that is easy to follow and practice. I would recommend this class if you would like a new experience walking your dog.

Dog Walks Can Be Relaxing!

Really! My techniques have helped hundreds of thousands of dogs and their people over the years.

I designed this new online dog training class to fit easily into your life, with short on-demand streaming videos (1-5 minutes each) with a systematic plan. Watch one or binge on several before training.

You'll get 59 practical, positive, empowered dog training lessons to nourish a beautiful walking relationship with the dogs in your life. That may seem like a lot of videos, but they're short and sweet -- watch while you wait for your coffee to brew or before you even get out of bed.

You’ll definitely need your treat pouch, but the dog won’t always be in ‘working mode’ or constantly getting treats. I love to let dogs (and people) enjoy their walks.

You can register directly for this class to keep access forever, or it's included with the Diamond membership, an all-access pass to this school. It's an excellent value!

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).
