Behavior Adjustment Training: BAT for Fear, Frustration, and Aggression in Dogs by Grisha Stewart


Think functional to solve your dog s reactivity issues

Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) was developed by author Grisha Stewart to rehabilitate and prevent dog reactivity. BAT looks at the function of growling, lunging, or fleeing and helps dogs learn socially acceptable behaviors that serve that same function. In a nutshell, BAT builds confidence by giving dogs a chance to learn to control their environment through peaceful means. That makes BAT very empowering to your dog or puppy, in a good way. It s also empowering for you, as you learn how to understand your dog and help him learn to safely get along with people, dogs, and other triggers.

You will learn:

How to encourage or shape a replacement behavior that provides your dog the same functional reward as reactivity.
Why it is important to keep your dog calm in the presence of a trigger while teaching him to make good choices.
Step-by-step instructions needed to stage BAT set-ups to work with your dog in a controlled environment.
Practical ways to keep your dog from being pushed into a reactive state in and around your home and on walks.
How to use BAT preventively for puppy socialization.
