Help for both sides of the conversation

  • Teach dogs to do specific behavior.

  • Motivate dogs to pay attention.

  • Get the dog's consent for petting and medical care.

  • Read body language.

  • Ask questions to understand a dog's intent.

Peace and Understanding

This video goes far beyond the basic understanding of sit/down/stay.

  • 1.5 Hour Video

    Part 1 of the Empowered Animals DVD series filmed by Tawzer, now available as streaming video. It is fundamental information for all dog lovers, and includes some information many trainers don't know.

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.

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).
