This course was suggested to me, and I initially thought, "Interesting, but the dog I'm working with is so calm that I don't see him exhibiting any of these behaviors." Then one evening we were walking and he was obviously uncomfortable with a human-dog pair walking toward us, although the signals he gave were MICRO, indeed. It was not something I would previously have picked up. I likely would have honored his behavior, but I wouldn't have understood with crystal clarity what was going on. Both people in our household have now watched this entire webinar and we very much enjoy Katrien Lismont's knowledge, philosophy, clear presentation, and humor. One of us remarked just today that the course has additionally given the ability to read other dogs' microsigns when we're out walking. Strongly recommended, whether you think you need the knowledge or not.

I loved this webinar. It was so interesting and made me think a lot about signals from dogs that I may have been missing before. Can't wait to watch more!

One of the most insightful videos in the course catalogue. Before this webinar, I felt I was guessing if my dogs are comfortable or not during BAT until it escalates to orange or red zones. After watching the video, I noticed significant changes in my interactions with my dogs. I actually felt empowered now that I can understand what my dogs are trying to tell me. I'm sure my dogs are happy as well! And I started to see immediate improvements from BAT set ups.

Again, Katrien has blown me away with so much useful information! Her selection of which topics to discuss, how in-depth to go supported by numerous examples and the extremely clear and organized way they are presented, with video rewinds and pointing out details that I’d probably overlook are actually increasing my canine education. I would really enjoy to see more future webinars from Ms. Lismont, either more in-depth on the topics she’s introduced or more TTouch or anything!

Fascinating look at the signs our dogs give us when we are out walking. I'd assumed that sniffing was sniffing but when you see the bigger context and remember how our dogs see the world, it can only make me more compassionate and hopefully patient. Thoroughly recommend.

I can't say enough about this one. I really learned so much about letting dogs take the time to check out the environment. I keep thinking about all of the dogs and owners I have worked with, and we didn't give the dog what was needed. Ugh! So grateful for the compassionate listening skills this (and many other webinars on Grisha's site) webinar gave me.

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.”

  • 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.

Catch what your dog is saying

"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.

    2.5 CEUs.

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

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!

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
