What have you been missing?

Before practicing BAT 2.0, experienced German dog trainer Katrien Lismont says she thought she knew all there was to know about the body language of our canines. Not quite. “BAT 2.0 gives us time and space enough to observe the moves and shifts, the quick and hasty changes, and stops, the shuffling and scurrying, the sudden disappearing and the stealth looks.”

All seeming quite accidental or even random, short, quick moves that are intended to slow down the approaching, the movement, the moment of the close encounter. Slowing down the speed gives them more time and space to take in what is happening in the environment.

As I’m fond of saying, “information is empowering.” Katrien writes, “I cannot recall anything in my dog career giving me more goosebumps and awe than those subtle signals and movements in all of that stillness and they increased my admiration for our polite and conflict-shy canines all the more. For this webinar I have some of the most frequent signals on video so that they can speak for themselves. I hope to show here that nothing dogs do is lacking significance or function even if to us their actions seem random.”

Most of the scenes were recorded in BAT Set-Ups. For CBATIs and others experienced in BAT, Katrien writes, “maybe this can still serve as a refresher and a reminder to be more mindful of our dogs and to discover how they master every day life. Imagine how we can build up their confidence once they notice that they are understood and have a voice. It leads to more trust in the human world, in themselves and unleashes more of this kind of peace talk. Browse with me though the dictionary of the micro signals and enjoy interpreting your dog’s moves on your very next walk.”

Recorded live February 10, 2021.

  • Lots of videos on body language that most trainers miss. Micro signals aren't necessarily tiny - they're hidden in plain sight.

  • The more body language you can read, the more effective your training!

  • Especially helpful for pet professionals, also appropriate for people with their own dogs.

  • Warning! You may get addicted to microsignals and want to film all of your training sessions after seeing this, if you don't already!

  • Recording of a live lecture and Q&A.

  • Signing up for a lot of online dog training? Diamond Members get ALL webinars and courses in the school for only $29.99 a month.

This has been so informative, and the title, "Would You Have Noticed?" is perfect! The little things dogs do on walks that we can take for granted are actually done for a reason. It is great to be able to recognize these signals and allow them do them, rather than pulling them along at our own desired pace or direction. Thank you!!

Learn to understand when your dog is telling you on a walk that they are uncomfortable or need more time to assess the situation. When you can read your dog, you can understand them and meet their needs. Great videos and explanations to clearly help you see and understand the signals your dog thinks they are clearly sending. Set ups occur within a BAT context, but the situations and behaviors are easily transferable to lots of situations. Five stars all the way!

I had no idea all of these dog movements and changes were anything but random. How great to have to find out that they mean something and how to interpret them. I'm very excited to see it in action with my dog and other dogs at the park. The course was terrific. The videos with real-life examples of communication coming from dogs were so helpful. Katrien explained each movement and change, slowing down the videos and repeating them where appropriate. Highly recommended!

This webinar exceeded my expectations. I put several of the observations to practice a couple of days after the presentation. I was walking a long-hair Chihuahua where we experienced very similar distractions and I was able to recognize the source of behaviors that I would not have otherwise noticed as they were very subtle. This is a must watch webinar!

I learned so much and now can't wait to look for these subtle (to us) changes in dog body movements when working with my (and my clients') dogs! And Katrien your presentation was brilliant (and gave me ein bißchen Heimweh--ich war 1996-2000 in Stuttgart in stationiert!! :-D I miss that countryside!)

I highly recommend that all dog owners and dog professionals watch this course !! Being a dog trainer myself I had thought I knew quite a bit about doggie body language. And I do. But until now I had not realized how much "ordinary" doggie behaviour is actually communication !! Listening to Katrien and watching the videos I understood, that I need to be aware of all the cirumstantial conditions a lot more: not only what's happening in the immediate and not so immediate surroundings of the dog and its owner, but also what the dogs body can tell me when he/she is not communicating with other dogs or humans. It is sort of humbling to realize how dogs are trying to get their messages across while we keep on walking beside them blithely ignorant of what is happening at our very feet. Thanx Katrien and Grisha for teaching us to take a much closer look !! :-) Biggi

"Normal" movements that indicate intention, arousal, interests, and reaction to stimuli.

  • Better training

    Ken Ramirez once told me that the strongest part about BAT is that it teaches people how to better communicate with dogs.

    Katrien is one of the best I know at paying close attention to dogs. I'm honored that BAT helped her fine-tune her skills and I love how she explains it all in this webinar.

  • Recording of a Live Webinar

    Katrien's mesmerizing presentation was about 2 hours with an additional 45 minutes of questions from the audience.

  • Bonus Material

    Includes powerpoint notes and a streaming playlist of the high-resolution versions of the body language videos included in the webinar.

Katrien is one of my favorite behavior specialists. She really pays attention to the dogs!
