Does your dog over-react? Does your dog bark, growl, even bite dogs or other people? Or maybe he cowers in the corner?

In this webinar, you will learn about Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT 2.0), a technique to teach your dog to be more comfortable and socially appropriate. This modern dog training approach is based on the concept of empowerment and allowing dogs to have space and time to feel safe. Depending on your experience with dogs and your dog’s level of aggression or fear, you might also want to hire a Certified BAT Instructor or a trainer experienced with the BAT 2.0 technique. T
