You’re in the right place if …
- you love your dog dearly but sometimes they can be just be a bit too much. They get overwhelmed, then start to mess around and you just want them to listen to you!.
- You want them to focus and are looking for something simple, but don’t know where to start.
- You’ve tried so much and you just dont seem to be getting it right and need some structured guidance to help increase their responsiveness to you.
Ever wanted to teach your dog how to be more responsive to your without feeling like you’re nagging them? This ebook created by Danielle Beck, accompanies the ‘Check In Challenge’ Course and will teach you how to do just that! This is a step by step guide to help you teach your dog how to regulate themselves and be more responsive to you!
My name is Danielle and I’d like to welcome you to ‘Auto Check – In‘; part of the ‘Control The Meerkat collection‘. We all know that life happens and it’s not all fairies and puppy tails; despite our best effort! Therefore, I’ve created ‘Control the meerkat’ to help YOU to understand YOUR DOG and learn all about what you can do to help them to cope, when life happens!
‘Auto Check – In‘ is one of our first steps to helping your dog learn how to start to regulate their emotions. That’s what Control The Meerkat is all about, we show you how to help your dogs, help themselves. It’s not about obedience and telling them what to do; it’s about teaching them the skills they need to manage themselves. By doing this our dogs learn how to regulate their own emotions and calm themselves when they feel excited, frustrated, scared or overwhelmed. This is where we begin.
‘Self regulation’ is a technique i’ve used for years to help dogs to cope with their emotions rather than relying on us to tell them what to do. This may work for some dogs, though the fallout can be when not told in time they struggle and react. This helps them to become well behaved as they can control their own meerkat and make decisions for themselves making your life with your dog easier!’
Good luck with your training!
