What is BAT? Behavior Adjustment Training is a method that increases calm, relaxed behavior for both the dog and their humans. Through the BAT process, we create opportunities for a dog to interact organically with the environment in emotionally and physically safe ways. The result is an adaptable team that is ready for the world.
We create supportive environments for deepening knowledge, practicing skills, and developing empowering behaviors through education, experience and conversation.
We value an environment of participation and connection. We honor individual learning, and demonstrate compassion in our interactions with dogs or humans. Our actions and words consistently demonstrate care and concern for our students’ commitments.
We empower people and dogs by offering information, choice, and support, all backed by the latest in science, to prevent and reduce undesired reactivity in dogs.
OBATS Faculty and Certified Instructors are highly skilled in Behavior Adjustment Training. Located around the world, we make life better for dogs and their people.
We offer BAT education for people who live and work with dogs.
From Beginners to Professionals, we welcome you.
BAT is a universal language we can all understand. We have Certified BAT Instructors around the globe, and more trainers are working toward their certification every day.
