The first BAT book is for dog trainers' historical reference. The details of BAT are no longer current. I do not recommend getting this book before BAT 2.0. The content has been replaced.

To learn about BAT 2.0, please check out the BAT 2.0 BookFeature Films on BAT, online courses, or attend a seminar.


Get the 1st edition of the BAT book instantly as an eBook (choose the format of EPUB, MOBI, or PDF, whichever works with your reader program). Computers can read PDFs, MOBI works for Kindle. You can also download all three file formats in a ZIP file (significantly larger).

Behavior Adjustment Training is a low-stress way to help dogs gain confidence and social skills. The BAT book is written so that non-trainers with reactive dogs can easily read through it to help their dogs, but it also has a technical side, making it very useful for professionals. The book has "Notes for Pros" throughout and special technical chapters for trainers and behaviorists.
