Instructor’s Course Scholarship Unites Hawai’i and Alaska

Tomoko Nakagawa of Hawai'i is the winner of a $400 scholarship to the BAT Instructor's Course in Anchorage, Alaska.

Here's a quote from Tomoko about BAT:

"BAT is the way of helping dogs with reactivity issues by teaching them how to control social and environmental pressures in peaceful manners by using their own language, and they can earn the same functional rewards which they originally wanted with problem behaviors. The dogs will be empowered by learning that they can make choices to deal with situations, and their human understand and respect the choices, which will help rebuilt the trust between dogs and their owners."
