BAT – Behavior Adjustment Training 2.0

BAT is a technique that gives the dog total control of making decisions in it’s environment while keeping the dog under threshold to any known triggers.Qualified trainers set the environment up in a perfect way therefore the dog is more interested in the environment then the trigger.When giving a dog choices there is always more natural learning taking place.This is the same way puppies or well socialized dogs learn.It’s the trainer that sets up the controlled environments so the dog can learn in a natural stress free way.

BAT was developed by Grisha Stewart for the rehabilitation for reactivity with dogs caused by fear,frustration, or anger.This tool is a must for any dog with reactivity, frustration,or anger issues on leash combined with BAT leash skills and implemented into your behavior mod program you will see your dogs gaining confidence and see your dog being a regular dog.

Camp Ruff Ruff currently holds a Certificate of Attendance for a BAT instructors course trained by Grisha herself.
