If you dog has a behaviour issue, or multiple issues you will need to undertake extensive behaviour consultation.
Does your dog have reactive issues to other dogs? Specific behaviour is for dog to dog reactivity. If you have this issue plus other issues, or a different behaviour issue please see extensive behaviour.
Behaviour Adjustment Training is a technique employed as part of behaviour modification. Learn more about the methods we use here.

Katey Aldred is the only Certified Behaviour Adjustment Training Instructor in the East of England.
WHAT METHODS DOES POOCH PAWS USE
Here at Pooch Paws we adopt the new school science approach to training which believes in Force Free training. All methods used are backed up by current scientific research.
You will not find ‘pack leadership’ forced on you or ‘dominance’ theory’s. That is the old school outdated method that ultimately leads to further problems within your relationship with your dog.
These methods when used with a behaviour problem deepen the issue and cause further fears and anxiety’s. We believe that counter conditioning and desensitisation along with some other methods are the only way forward.
We also use a method called Behaviour Adjustment Training (BAT) and Katey is proud to be the first and only certified instructor in the East of England.
WHAT IS BEHAVIOUR ADJUSTMENT TRAINING
Behaviour Adjustment Training (BAT) is a training method for dogs who experience fear, frustration, and aggression.
What Grisha Stewart says:
“BAT empowers animals to live with confidence and joy among humans.”
BAT was developed by Grisha Stewart, MA, CPDT-
BAT is a living method that evolves as new research and its positive practical applications are explored, developed and verified. The core of BAT is that it is a dog-
By setting up situations in which dogs can safely explore the environment and investigate other dogs, people, etc., BAT helps dogs learn to control their own comfort level through peaceful means.
BAT & POOCH PAWS
BAT is worked into most of our behaviour programs. It can be used solely on its own, if for example there is only the problem of aggression or frustration, but often there are quite a few elements to a behaviour problem.
We will teach you the necessary skills to apply lead work, manage your environment, deal with hazards and apply training. You will learn how to arrange set ups, and apply NINJA BAT (one of our favourite sayings, thanks Grisha).
Katey has attended both the 2 day seminar and the 5 day workshop both run by Grisha Stewart. Attending these courses meant valuable skills were learnt, much more than can be learnt from any book!
BAT can also be applied to most training situations and applied during puppy training. At Pooch Paws we are running toward the ethos of Empowering Animals in every session we undertake.
Katey is currently in the process of certification to become a Certified Behaviour Adjustment Instructor (CBATI). Check back soon for more information, we have exciting news coming your way!
Don’t just take out word for it, have a look at our testimonials!
“Katey noticed Austin had an issue with touching around his neck which we needed to work on, as well as some fear of visiting the vets. Katey showed us how to apply Behaviour Adjustment Training (BAT), which helped him overcome this……………I like to think that today Austin is a well socialised, confident dog and these classes have been a huge part of that, so thank you very much! I would 100% recommend these classes to anyone regardless of the age of their dog, Katey's insight into dog behaviour is worth the fee in its own right.”
“Katey's knowledge, skills and passion for the job is inspirational and I more than happy to continue to recommend her to my dog friends, thank you Katey!”
