Description

Neurobics are mental exercises designed to create new neural pathways in the brain by using the senses in unconventional ways. While aerobic exercises target different muscle groups, neurobics increase the "range of motion" in the brain. Mental stimulation and enrichment activities can be very helpful in addressing anxiety, impulse control issues, or boredom for your dog. This class will introduce your dog to a wide range of new sensory experiences. Each week will be spent thoroughly exploring each sense (tactile, visual, olfactory, auditory, and gustatory) and learning about your individual dog's likes and dislikes! We'll also play around with canine cognition exercises to challenge your dog's long- and short-term memory in fun and interesting ways. This is an online class, which will use the Facebook platform for video sharing and weekly Live meetings! Each week, new games, exercises, and articles will be introduced which you will then explore at your own pace with your dog from the comfort of your own home. Auditing participants will have access to all of the class materials and classmates' threads, but will not receive any personalized advice on their own dog's progress. Working participants are required to submit videos and questions each week, and will receive personalized training advice on their dog's progress.
