Why refer your clients to us?
We understand the importance of working as part of a veterinary led team as many behaviour problems have medical ailments.
We also feel it’s important to support clients who’s dog have medical problems, from a behavioural perspective, to ensue their behaviour doesn’t exacerbate during treatment or to provide post surgical behavioural care to help clients to ‘keep their dogs calm’ and relaxed during their recover and help them with any signs of aggression due to post surgical pain.
Resources for Vets
We feel it’s important to keep up to date with the current scientific literature and share this information where possible.
Our resource page is filled with links to webinars, courses and informational downloads about veterinary behaviour as approved my our APBC veterinary behaviourist colleages
Many of our trainers off rehabilitation group classes for dogs who need a helping hand, but haven’t progressed to needing a full behavioural consultation.
We currently have trainers in Leigh, Preston, Halifax and Grimsby.
Our courses are all aimed at pet owners who are struggling with their dogs.
These courses are written and presented by The Control The Meerkat Team to give your clients access to fast first aid information to prevent any problems from getting work and to help them to make a start on the foundation training.
