Editorial Reviews

Review

"BAT 2.0 - nice improvement to an already excellent approach for dealing with reactive dogs." 
-- Ken Ramirez, Executive Vice-President and Chief Training Officer of Karen Pryor Clicker Training (via Twitter)


Grisha Stewart's updated version of BAT is easy to understand with wonderful illustrations and pictures to help the reader visualize the process. One of the things I like most about this book is the attention paid to reading dogs for signs of stress in order to keep the dog as comfortable as possible during setups.  
-- Emily Larlham, dog trainer, seminar presenter, and host of the Kikopup YouTube Channel


I have enjoyed every chapter, every page and every line of the book. I think it is not only original, but breaking new ground in that it strikes a blow for ethical ways of training. I hope it will spread around the world.

I love the pedagogical approach of this book and the focus on how to install a feeling of control in a dog's life, all in all a fundamental recipe if you want your dog to feel safe and happy. It also adds an ability for dogs to predict events, which further strengthens its self-worth and being in control in relevant life situations. Keeping a distance to what triggers the dog and gradually come closer to it - another dog, a human or whatever the dog reacts to - is a training method with documented good results.

What I especially like in BAT 2.0 is something which is often overlooked in dog training, and that is how to use naturally occurring reinforcers: A method based on the "Premack's principle", or the relativity theory of reinforcement. Grisha does a great job of explaining how to use this in dog training.

The chapter "BAT for Puppy Socialization" earns special mention. It is simply excellent! In my opinion everyone who has a puppy, is getting a puppy, or is just interested in how to take care of puppies, should read and learn from this. In fact, it could be a separate book.

The BAT 2.0 book is a star among training concepts and Grisha Stewart has such a nice way of making everything easy to understand. Add her sense of humor to the topic and you have a book that is hard to put down.

-- Anders Hallgren, Animal behaviorist, dog psychologist, Psychologist Msc (Sweden)

Behavior Adjustment Training 2.0 is unique--a living document detailing the evolution of a very effective intervention from the experience of many practitioners. I loved the practicality of this book, as well as Grisha Stewart's dedication to giving dogs a voice in their own development! This is must-reading for those working with dog reactivity in its many forms.
--Risë VanFleet, Ph.D., CDBC Author, The Human Half of Dog Training: Collaborating with Clients to Get Results

From the Author

Thanks for checking out my book! I wrote most of it while camping in Alaska with my dog, Peanut and finished up editing with puppy Bean in tow. 

The BAT 2.0 book replaces the need to read the old one, because the technique is very different now.  It's easier to understand and has even more focus on empowerment and stress reduction. I started with the old book as my foundation, but changed pretty much every sentence and added something like 100 more pages.

So unless you just want to compare BAT 1.0 and 2.0, save yourself the expense and only get the new book. Look for me on Facebook if you have questions about it.

BAT is a great way to rehabilitate dog reactivity (aggression, frustration, fear), but it's also really useful for puppy socialization and everyday life with all dogs. BAT is more than a technique - it's a lifestyle for everyone with dogs.
