Article: Canine Neurobis: A Curriculum to Improve Brain Health (No replies)
Canine Neurobics is a group class for dogs that need a little something more than the typical obedience training class. I offered this specialty class for three years on a weekly basis. Pet owners enjoyed this class because it gave them a new skill set to manage their dogs’ problem behaviors. The multiple trials presented with each exercise also provided increased confidence in owners training their dogs. The activities also enhanced relationship between pet owners and their dogs. Many owners commented that the class gave them the nuts-and-bolts on how to redirect, interrupt, divert, and calm dogs who were presenting out-of-control behavior. The class curriculum is based on neuroscience and utilizes multiple senses to improve learning. Exercises based on sentient learning and cognition were introduced in each class. Canine participants were required to have completed a basic obedience class or have solid compliance with cues.
