Training is great to change sequences of movements, we call behaviours.  But to help change a dogs feelings and perceptions of the world it moves in; the dogs'  physical & mental states may need to be rebalanced.  Feelings and physical states are deeply individual experiences for any animal. We have no direct access to them, as dogs can't tell us via spoken words. Thus, Neuropark is a novel but safe place were we can observe dogs, to gather more understanding, help them recover and gain confidence through exploration & exploitation (active inference).
It is through a brains predictied movements in the world its body moves in, when learning occurs.
