Do you know...

...that your dog isn't trying to be alpha over you? This on-demand webinar is packed with modern, science-based training info with practical advice. You'll learn how to solve behavior problems and build a reliable relationship with your dog. A need-based approach (rather than the outdated dominance model) creates a culture of trust and mutual respect.

It’s a recording of a live webinar in which I explored some fundamental techniques and ideas that will put you in a better position to train at home or in group classes with a local dog trainer. It also includes some info for for dog reactivity and socialization using my BAT 2.0 technique.

  • Solving problems with empowerment

  • Using empowerment for aggression, frustration, and fear in dogs - example: Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT)

  • How to read body language and ask your dog questions

  • How to encourage cooperation, for example, with: Coming when called, polite walking, and vet care / grooming

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).
