This webinar was pure gold - nothing like 50 years of wisdom, from a different dog culture (Sweden) - to open your mind to what your dog is doing. His analysis of fetch, tug - the idea of a walk going through 'mental exercise' stations - these all were so original and so well backed up by his experience and vast knowledge of wolf behavior. One of the best webinars on dogs I have ever attended and can't wait for the others.

I felt absolutely honoured to be sat their watching Anders live from my living room. Such a gentle kind soul with a wealth of experience and I cannot wait until the next two episodes. I cannot believe I’ve actually got to listen to him live and I cannot wait until the next two sessions. The Q&A was brilliant too, thank you Grisha and Anders for a wonderful first session

This was very informative and interesting/engaging. Thank you! In particular, the remarks on controlling a dog's behavior and pressuring dogs into passive submission versus being the dog's caregiver, helping the dog find discipline and balance within the dog's freedom--as much of all that as possible! Thank you! --Sean O'Connor

Stress Affects Behavior, Learning, and Health

Anders Hallgren is one of the founding fathers of positive dog training. With a Master's degree in psychology and a professional interest in animal behavior, Andy became the first 'animal psychologist' long before I even got my first dog bite as a child.

I came across his name in around 2011 when I was teaching BAT in the Netherlands. The shocked response from the dog trainer I spoke with was "how could you NOT KNOW who Anders Hallgren is?" It would be sort of like not knowing about Karen Pryor, Bob Bailey, or Terry Ryan. He helped establish positive dog training in Sweden, long before it took root with family dog trainers in the US.

I’m so glad that I’ve had a chance to work with Andy for several years now. When I lived in Alaska, I had the pleasure of bringing Andy to teach this topic as a two day dog training seminar. The students loved the information and enjoyed Andy’s sense of humor. He also taught a webinar on his Smoke Alert Training technique here in the school.

Andy taught this online course on canine stress from Sweden, in 3 live sessions, now recorded for you to watch on-demand.

Session 1: Different forms of stress in dogs (focusing on over- and understimulation, stress analysis and therapy)
Session 2: Social stress, the theory behind this low intensive, high frequency form of stress in dogs, implications and therapy
Session 3: Post-traumatic stress, physiology and psychology of stress and how to help a dog by simple means to recovery in three weeks

Course is available as a unit only, not individual sessions. Live sessions will also be recorded for registered students to view later.

  • Suitable for Professionals as well as families.

  • Force-free positive training for safe, reliable results.

  • Learn how stress affects learning and how our choices can influence stress.

  • Live sessions, will also be recorded for you to watch later.

  • Heavy on theory, this course will also include practical ways to help reduce distress.

  • 9 CCPDT CEUs.

  • 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.

Learn From a World Leader on the Subject of Stress in Dogs.

  • In-Depth Discussion

    This presentation was done in three parts online, fully delivering the content of what Andy usually teaches as a 1-day in-person seminar.

  • Decades of Experience

    I can safely say that there are few people in this world with as much experience in dog behavior as Anders Hallgren. He's passionate about helping dogs live better lives.

  • Continued Support

    Course students are also eligible to continue the conversation in the Grisha Stewart Learner Support Facebook Group.

    Diamond members can also always post in the special group for Diamonds.

Instructor

Psychologist

Anders Hallgren, MSc.

Anders Hallgren is considered to be the the first dog psychologist in the world and has written 31 books on dog training, with a focus on mental activation and empowerment. Anders was examined 1971 as a psychologist, MSc, at the University of Stockholm, Sweden.

Anders was the first in the world to train dogs to detect mold in buildings, which today is somewhat of an industry in Scandinavia. He was also assigned to start a program for educating service dogs for assistance dogs in Sweden, which is now effectively developing. In 2000, Anders introduced smoke alarm training for dogs and the interest is growing for this training in several countries. Anders is a global treasure in the dog behavior field, and I'm thrilled to have him sharing his wisdom and experience in my online school.
