Alert Meerkat

It looks like your dog has an Alert Meerkat!!

Our Self Study Courses are a great start to help your dog, giving them the skills to control their ALERT Meerkat.

This can be tough to live with but you’re getting by. Your dog really struggles to manage themselves, but gets there eventually, though you wish they could control themselves and respond to you a bit faster! 

There are Five Main Types of Meerkat That Can Hijack Your Dog

They often over react to situations and make your dog difficult to control. For Calm Meerkats, it can take a lot to wake them up, but they’re not easy to manage once in control.


Which Meerkat Controls Your Dog?

Control The Meerkat Can Help!!

For ALERT Meerkats we recommend starting with our ‘Check In Challenge’ ! This helps your dog to become more responsive to you on a walk and then you can start to apply it to other situations like rabbits, squirrels, other dogs, or anything that makes your dogs Meerkat ‘ALERT’. 

The foundation skills from our challenge and the self management exercises in ‘If in Doubt; Chill Out’, will help your dog to learn how to calm themselves down in different situations.

If you want to understand whats happening inside your dogs brain and why they get hijacked by the Meerkat, check out our foundation course ‘Dr Spock & The Meerkat – How the brain affects behaviour’
