What Do I Get With My Consultation?
Our Clinical Animal Behaviourist are ready to help you with your dog, so let's get you booked in and then we can discuss the best package for you.
Behaviour problems in dogs can be displayed through aggressive, destructive, vocal, or shutdown behaviours, which can be difficult to live with. These dogs 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,
- Lack of the ability to emotionally regulate
At Control the Meerkat we understand why dogs use aggression, the potential impacts of trauma, and how this can affect both your dog and you 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 so they don’t react !
Dogs can often look aggressive, as they growl, lunge, chew or bite. Some may be the opposite and are extremely shut down, too scared to move or interact. However, often this come comes from a place of being emotionally overwhelmed and we can help!
