BAT is an excellent way to help dogs overcome fears, decrease aggression, and improve social skills. This is a 1.5 hour DVD of the seminar by Grisha Stewart, "BAT for Fear & Aggression" at Marin County Humane Society in Novato, CA on January 23, 2010. You'll get a good start on learning what BAT is, how it's done, and how you can combine it with other methods.

I've actually gotten goosebumps at the end of a BAT session. Behavior Adjustment Training, or BAT, uses environmental consequences to reward socially acceptable choices. In a nutshell, BAT gives the dogs a chance to learn to control their environment through peaceful means. It’s very empowering to the dog, in a good way. It's low-stress, and it feels like *real* dog whispering.

BAT uses functional and bonus rewards, combined with clicker training and systematic desensitization to help dogs make better choices in an error-free way.

The things that you find obnoxious or scary (barking & lunging, for example) serve a purpose for the dog. Imagine you hated your high-stress job but loved the pay. It leaves you exhausted and panting, but you enjoy the reward at the end of it. Given the chance to earn your same great paycheck by doing something easier that you liked more, wouldn’t you do it?

The key to BAT working quickly is low stress, never leaving the dog in the ‘deep end of the pool’ or punishing them for incorrect choices.

Great explanation and demo of this method

- 31st March 2010

After watching this DVD, you will understand the science behind Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) and how to implement it properly. The video clips of actual BAT trials are great and Grisha comments on them as they are shown.

BAT is a user-friendly, dog-friendly way to alleviate fear-based aggression using operant conditioning plus gentle desensitization. Its flexibility allows you to tailor the trials to the needs of the particular dog. The sessions can be fun and interesting for the dog, setting up an ideal environment for learning. BAT is a powerful tool for any trainer who works with aggressive dogs, and this DVD will get you off to a great start working with this wonderful method.
