Behaviour Adjustment Training ebook
What is it about? A practical way to solve your dogs reactivity issues.
Behaviour 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 behaviours 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 behaviour” 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 decisions.
• 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.

Dogs, just like humans, have anxiety around others. "Behavior Adjustment Training: BAT for Fear, Frustration, and Aggression in Dogs" is a guide to working with dogs as a trainer and an owner and encourage dogs to behave appropriately in situations that inspire aggression and anxiety throughout their lives. Placing the focus on what triggers the behavior and how to calm a dog through it, and the importance of starting young, "Behavior Adjustment Training" is an insightful and much recommend dive into dog psychology for community library pets collections.
