Welcome to #ControlTheMeerkat where you can learn how to ‘help your dog to help themselves’. This is a safe place for all who want to understand more about why their dogs behave the way they do and what they can do to help them.

Behaviour problems in dogs can be displayed through aggressive, destructive, vocal or shutdown behaviours which can be difficult to live with. These dog often become reactive for many different reasons which can include, but are not limited to:

  • Developmental problems,
  • Genetic disorders,
  • Acute or repetitive trauma,
  • Underlying health concerns,

This can often look aggressive, as the dog growls, lunges, chews or bites. Some may be the opposite and are extremely shut down, too scared to move or interact.

At Control the Meerkat we understand the impacts of trauma in animals and how post traumatic stress can affect them both long and short term. Our qualified behaviourists have a special interest in trauma and we adhere to trauma informed care when helping you with your dog. This ensures that we help the underlying emotions so your dog can learn how to manage themselves in the situations they struggle in
