BAT: Advanced Concepts

BAT – Behavior Adjustment Training

Course Information:

Learn how to build dogs’ coping skills, increase confidence, 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 a technique that will make you more effective as a humane trainer.

Most of the behavior that our clients want to change is maintained by the environment. That behavior can be replaced by more appropriate behavior with the same or similar consequence as a reinforcer. We have historically used this for jumping up and other issues, but it can also be used for aggression, fear, and frustration, as in BAT.

BAT gives the dog control over his environment. By doing so, the dog builds 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 giving the dog control and using environmental reinforcers that meet the dog’s needs.
