  Description of Seminar/Conference

Learn how to build dogs' coping skills and decrease fear using Behavior Adjustment Training. You’ll learn how to add BAT to your behavior modification toolbox, not to replace your other tools like classical counter-conditioning, but to add techniques that will make you more effective as a humane trainer.

Behavior Adjustment Training is a system for rehabilitating problem behaviors, including aggression, fear, pulling on leash, and more. Just about any 'bad' behaviors that are maintained by the environment can be replaced by more appropriate behaviors, using the same environmental triggers and rewards.

When working with aggression, BAT uses *operant* counter-conditioning with systematic desensitization to build social skills, confidence around the trigger, and trust in the handler. While food or other rewards are used with BAT in some cases, the main focus of BAT is on using environmental rewards that already maintain the problem behavior.
