Learn how to:
Rehabilitate aggression, frustration, and fear.
Use survival skills to prevent reactivity on walks and at home.
Use a long line to safely maximize your dog's freedom of movement.
Apply Grisha's BAT philosophy to all dogs and puppies...and get your life back!

What experts are saying about Behavior Adjustment Training
BAT 2.0 is a must-read for anyone who has or works with reactive dogs. For years, dogs all over the world have benefited from the successful philosophies and empowering techniques in BAT, but Grisha Stewart has taken it to the next level. A clear appreciation for the canine experience and easy to follow, practical techniques is what makes BAT 2.0 so beneficial for dogs that experience frustration, anxiety, or fear in any social situation. Stewart gives control back to the dog allowing a delicate balance of freedom, the ability to make choices and safety. I highly recommend BAT 2.0 to anyone who is struggling with a reactive dog or who wants to gain a better understanding of their canine companion.
Victoria Stillwell, author, Train Your Dog Positively

When I ask behavior professionals, "What are your eyes for?" they enthusiastically reply, "To see!" But when I ask, "What is your behavior for?" conference rooms fall silent. In BAT 2.0, Grisha Stewart provides the essential answer to this all-important question: Behavior is to have an effect, that is, to be effective. By safely allowing dogs more control over their own outcomes, especially in challenging conditions where fearful, frustrated, and aggressive behavior is most likely, caregivers will be more successful shaping independent, competent, confident companions.
Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, www.behaviorworks.org

BAT 2.0 is unique--a living document detailing the evolution of a very effective intervention from the experience of many practitioners. I loved the practicality of this book, as well as Grisha Stewart's dedication to giving dogs a voice in their own development! This is must-reading for those working with dog reactivity in its many forms.
Risë VanFleet, Ph.D., CDBC, author, The Human Half of Dog Training

As a clicker trainer I highly value creativity. I love it every time a trainer uses the laws of learning in new and creative ways that results in better ways of dog training. What Grisha has done with BAT 2.0 is just that. The method combines operant and classical conditioning with a deep knowledge of the dog´s natural language and behavior. And even though BAT is grounded in hard science, Grisha has a way of explaining things so clear and simple that everybody can understand it--and do it.
Morten Egtvedt, Director, Canis Clicker Training Academy

I love the pedagogical approach of BAT 2.0 and the focus on how to install a feeling of control in a dog's life, all in all a fundamental recipe if you want your dog to feel safe and happy. It also adds an ability for dogs to predict events, which further strengthens its self-worth and being in control in relevant life situations.
Anders Hallgren, author, Stress, Anxiety, and Aggression in Dogs

BAT 2.0 shows that Grisha is continually evaluating and adjusting her behavior modification recipes. She has made great steps forward in her quest to help the emotional well-being of dogs.
Terry Ryan, author, Coaching People to Train Their Dogs

About the Author

Grisha Stewart, MA, CPDT-KA is a dog trainer and international seminar presenter who specializes in empowerment and dog reactivity. She has two books, several DVDs, and runs an online dog training school from Alaska. Grisha also founded Ahimsa Dog Training in Seattle. Ahimsa has earned many awards, including Best of Western Washington. "Ahimsa" is a Buddhist doctrine of nonviolence to all living things, which reflects Grisha's focus on empowerment training for all animals, including people.

Grisha has a Master's degree in Mathematics from Bryn Mawr College and post-graduate training in psychology with an emphasis on animal behavior from Antioch University. Her first career as a theoretical mathematician and college instructor serves her well in dog training and behavior consultations, because she relies heavily on the problem solving, critical thinking, and teaching skills she gained in that field.

Canine behavior fascinates Grisha and she is highly motivated to help improve our techniques for rehabilitating and training dogs. Her professional interest in reactivity and the need to find an efficient rehabilitation technique for her own dog's fears led Grisha to develop BAT.
