Instructors in Their Own Words

Taught by service dog trainer and child safety specialist Vanesa Vizuete of Helping Paws NW, with some tidbits on consent for contact from me (Grisha).

Service Dog Trainer

Vanesa Vizuete

I am a professional pet dog trainer, service dog trainer, and international speaker. I am passionate about educating families around the world to teach their children life skills like empathy, consent, respect, and healthy boundaries through the daily interactions they have with their dog.

My mission is to promote healthy interactions to reduce the number of kids bitten by a familiar dog and lower the incidence of dogs being re-homed or euthanized.

My "I Speak Woof!!" classes don't just teach the entire family how to be safe around dogs; these lessons make a lifetime impression and can help children grow into adults with healthy boundaries and compassion.

Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Author

Grisha Stewart

I'm a dog trainer, author, and international speaker based in Oregon, USA. My specialty is mental wellness for all beings, including dogs, i.e., dog socialization and reactivity. My Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) technique is used worldwide to help dogs gain confidence and social skills.

I have always been a teacher. I earned a Master's in mathematics to become a college instructor, but I found my true passion in helping people and dogs. I have been teaching dog training and behavior in person since 2003, started traveling worldwide to teach dog trainers in 2010, and also added an online school in 2014. I focus on force-free methods to promote the well-being of dogs and their humans.
