Keep Calm & Walk On

Dogs around the world have triumphed over reactivity (fear, frustration, aggression) by doing BAT set-ups, which are calm and carefully orchestrated so the dog feels safe.

In between sessions, dogs and people are still exposed to triggers like other dogs, children, etc. in everyday life. That's where the Survival Skills come to the rescue.

  • How to get and keep your dog's focus.

  • What to do if a trigger is approaching your dog.

  • What to do if you're trapped and can't avoid a trigger.

  • Key behaviors to train your dog to help him stay busy.

  • The BAT Mark and Move technique for introductions.

  • Included with Diamond & Gold Memberships (see below).

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.
