About Teamwork seminars:
Looking for a great way to jumpstart your dog training and have a stronger relationship with your dog? Or maybe you're a professional trainer looking for better ways to train or explain?
Professional dog trainer and author Grisha Stewart has a unique perspective on life with dogs. Her training style focuses on using clear communication and empowerment to teach behavior that improves the quality of life for everyone in the family, including the dog(s).
What Will I Learn?
These 2-hour seminars are packed with information on how to solve behavior problems and build a reliable relationship with your dog.
This seminar explores some fundamental techniques and ideas that will put you in a better position to train at home or in group classes with a local dog trainer, and includes some info on Grisha's BAT 2.0 technique for dog reactivity and socialization. Professional dog trainers are also encouraged to attend because these are non-standard ideas that may change the way you teach.
- How unmet needs lead to problems
- Solving problems with empowerment
- Using empowerment for aggression, frustration, and fear in dogs - example: Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT)
- How to read body language and ask your dog questions
- How to encourage cooperation, for example, with:
- Coming when called
- Polite walking (including the BAT leash skills)
- Vet care & grooming
Grisha's entertaining, active presentation includes powerpoint, videos, and (in venues that allow a dog on stage) live demonstrations. Her books and DVDs will also be available, including the new BAT 2.0 book.
