How Has BAT Changed, and Why?

This video starts off with a brief overview of BAT 2.0 for dog reactivity, in case you aren't yet familiar with it. In the second half of the video, I go through older video footage and explore the inspirations behind the many improvements I've made to the BAT technique along the way.

  • Why did I start using a long line?

  • How is BAT 2.0 Different From 1.0?

  • What happened to Stages 1, 2, and 3?

Why try BAT 2.0?

BAT 2.0 creates scenarios that increase learner control, build confidence, and reduce arousal.

  • Archived Live Webinar Video

    This 1.5 Hour streaming video explores how BAT has evolved to give the learner more control, reduce stress, build better communication, and be easier to learn than ever. This is especially useful if you are familiar with BAT 1.0, but haven't yet made the leap to upgrade to BAT 2.0.

  • Fast Learning Curve

    BAT works with an animal’s natural repertoire of desirable behaviors, and doesn’t require much pre-training for the human to begin the rehabilitation process for both them and their dog.

  • Bonus Material

    You'll also get PDF notes of the Powerpoint from the presentation and a quick quiz for understanding. The quiz also allows us to issue a certificate if you are a professional and need CEUs.
    1.5 CPDT CEUs.

Praise for the BAT 2.0 book

Susan Friedman, Ph.D.

"When I ask behavior professionals, ‘What are your eyes for?’ they reply enthusiastically, ‘To see!’ But when I ask, ‘What is your behavior for?’ conference rooms fall silent.

In BAT 2, 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."


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.
