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.
