This seminar dvd can be found at www.tawzerdog.com This Short Seminar video will help dog-savvy viewers get started with Behavior Adjustment Training.You'll see how to add BAT to your behavior modification toolbox to build dogs' coping skills and decrease fear. When working with fear and aggression, BAT uses *operant* counter-conditioning with a marker signal and 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 reactivity.
