About this Episode

When a dog reacts out of fear or frustration--even aggression, things can escalate fast! Some reactions can really interfere with a dog's life and ability to leave the house.

Today's guest, trainer Grisha Stewart, specializes in these issues and has created a system called BAT -- Behavior Adjustment Training, and now BAT 2.0. We talk with her about her philosophy and approach to helps dogs readjust to triggers and start to respond from a sense of safety rather than threat.

(Puppy Update: I just realized I didn't give a puppy update in the audio intro! Oops. For those who follow DK on Instagram or FB, you can find the news there. For those who only listen to the podcast, my puppy was born in a litter of 8. 4 boys, only one of them brown. So most likely I will end up with a black male. I'm fine with that, but if I get lucky enough to get the brown one, I won't mind at all!)
