Neurofeedback is Relaxation training for Pets. Willie is a 6 year old dog, who was rescued from a puppy mill. Prior to neurofeedback Willie would not groom himself or play and he would hide behind the couch. Max is a 12 year old cat adopted from the SPCA. Max did not groom himself or play. He would hide and avoided everyone. Today after neurofeedback training both Willie and Max are happy and content. Both grooming themselves, playing and communicating with humans.
