What do you think?
Thank you! We are just realizing that our new Westie pup is deaf.
Thanks, I have a deaf white German Shepard, 2 years old, she’s good, but needs some training on a leash.
I disagree that it is difficult to train a deaf dog, and you don’t need to use the lead so much. It is much better to spend the time teaching your dog to watch you and use lures. My dog is very bright but he gets too confused if i try to physically tell him to do something because he can’t “see” what my hands are asking.
Thanks for the helpful info. I am about to adopt a deaf pitbull puppy and I was curious about the techniques necessary to keep him safe.
thanks my dog is deaf
he gets lost all the time because we cant yell for him so its hard
Hey we bought a deaf pitbull puppy about 3days ago and have learned he does great with viberations. And trainers have told me to get a viberating collar(not shock) it will get his attention long enough to show him the come comand
I have a deaf puppy called “Seal”. He is the sweetest thing! And he is very afective and obdient but I ALWAYS use a leash to walk him because I get scared. However, we bought a house with a garden – we had an appartment – so that he can play safely.
I know it´s silly, but I don´t think it´s stupid speaking to him. He wags his tail when I chat to him and I think he don´t understand, but he “feels” that I am happy with him. I think he makes a twice as good companion.
Great video however i don’t like the use of the lead. My deaf dog learnt to sit and down in one week and although deaf she has been taught all commands as if she was a normal dog but without the verbal sound. Iv only had Hunter for six months and she is now ready to move onto obedience and agility school.
thank for closed captioned on video
Great info. We just got our little white Boxer last Saturday and confirmed he is Deaf. He’s only 9 weeks. so any training we do will be short… I’m not forseeing any problems. Just another challenge!
We have just bought a 9 week old puppy and she is deaf also, we have found putting a bell on her leash helps us find her when she hides around the side of the house.
I like the idea of using American Sign Language with Deaf Dogs. A lot more can be communicated with ASL.
disabledanimal has adoptions, help and the ability to list disabled animals – it’s for those who have a soft spot in their hearts for these precious ones that are blind, deaf, paralyzed, etc. 🙂
testing 1.2.3. (is this working?)
