What Does A Meerkat Have To Do With
Dog Training And Behaviour?

The Meerkat is an analogy developed by Danielle Beck, MSc, to help caregivers to understand how the brain affects your dogs behaviour. Often our dogs react so quickly we lose control, they’re like a different dog and the treats just dont work. This emotional highjacking we refer to as ‘The Meerkat’ and we can show you how to ‘Control The Meerkat’ so you can train your dog.
