People often ask, “How do you train a deaf dog?” I’ve worked several deaf dogs from daschunds to Great Pyrenees. With very few, important modifications, deaf dogs can be trained the same as most dogs. Working with deaf dogs has made me more aware of how unnecessary it is to repeat cues to communicate with them. Deaf dogs taught me how important body language is to dogs and how important it is to reward a dog for paying attention. These important lessons help me better serve any dog owner. Because if you can get a dog to go to his bed with glance and stop a dog from taking something from the counter with a wag of your finger, it shouldn’t matter if that dog is deaf or not.
