Dog Walks Can Be Fun and Relaxing!

Dog walks aren't meant to be a military march. I like dogs to enjoy their walks, but I also don't want them to yank my arm out of the socket. How, specifically, can we train for calm, fun walks?

In this 21-day Challenge course, I will give you easy positive dog training lessons to build up, day by day, to a beautiful walking relationship with the dogs in your life. You’ll definitely need your treat pouch, but the dog won’t always be in ‘working mode’ or constantly getting treats.

Recommended equipment: Comfortable Harness, 15-foot (5 meter) Long Line, Treat pouch, and treats! (Links are for convenience, if you already have your own gear, that's great). You'll also need a dog, potbellied pig, goat, alpaca, Shetland pony, horse or any other animal that you can walk on a line. A clicker is also great to have.

I know your life is busy, and this class is scheduled to be easy to fit into your life. Each day of the challenge, starting June 22, 2021, you'll get a 5-10 minute video clip in the course player and an email reminder in case you've forgotten. You can ask questions in the four 30-minute live sessions or in the school Facebook group (or in the Diamonds’ Facebook group if you’re a Diamond member).

 Live sessions: Wednesday June 23, June 30, July 7, July 14 at 10 am Pacific, about 30 minutes each (though I may stay longer if needed, especially in session 1). All of it will be recorded, so you won’t miss out.

  • Suitable for professional dog trainers as well as families with dogs.

The missing puzzle pieces to make walks fun & easy!

  • Daily Lessons = Daily Progress

    I know it can be hard to stay on track with training your dog. With this course, you'll get daily lessons to help motivate you to actually train your dog and make walks fun!

    Live session recordings will be on your Dashboard to watch later.

    3 CEUs pending.

  • Theory and Practice

    I'll throw in bits of theory and focus on the most important part - how to actually get you and your dog to work as a team.

    You'll learn how to use a long line and my new Leash Belay technique to provide a sense of freedom while still being safe and in control.

  • I'm Here to Help

    At the launch of the course and every week, I'll be in Zoom to answer questions from dog trainers and people with their own dogs.

    You can also continue the conversation in the Facebook group (or the special Diamond group if you're a member).


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).
