Empowering Dogs and Humans Around the World

OBATS provides world-class learning opportunities to understand, prevent and reduce undesired reactivity in dogs.

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.

  • Learning

    We create supportive environments for deepening knowledge, practicing skills, and developing empowering behaviors through education, experience and conversation.

  • Respect

    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.

  • Empowerment

    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.
