Kaos Rocks Her Agility Trials

Kaos Rocks Her Agility Trials

I love some of the great stories we are receiving here at Deaf Dogs Rock which include deaf dogs participating in competition events such as Obedience, Rally, and Agility. What a great way to advocate for deaf dogs by earning competition titles in many of these sanctioned competitions. By deaf dog owners participating in such events this brings awareness and education through action by showing the general public how amazing deaf dogs can be with the help of a loving family with a strong commitment to consistent positive reinforcement training and socialization. Our next Deaf Dogs Competition dog featured here in Deaf Dogs Rock is Kaos. She is a smart, high energy, Parson Russell Terrier who continues to ROCK her Agility and Rally trials. Thanks to Jennifer Dentino for taking the time to send us Kaos’ story and photos. According to my deaf dogs Nitro, Bud and myself, you both […]

What’s Different, And What’s Not, About Training Deaf Dogs

What's Different, And What's Not, About Training Deaf Dogs

This article by Paul Klein captures the essence of living with and training a deaf dog. Paul is right on point when he writes “It is vital to bear in mind from the outset that deaf dogs respond when their handlers talk to them. They can’t hear, but they observe and respond to countenance and body posture as much and possibly more than hearing dogs do. To a deaf dog, these things are equivalent to tone of voice.” I hope you all enjoy this article as much as I did. According to my deaf dog Nitro and I, Paul Klein totally ROCKS! ~ Christina Lee – DDR This article comes from Tell Me You Love Me on the Association of Pet Dog Trainer’s Official Website.  This essay was written by Paul Klein in which he won 1st Place in the APDT Essay Scholarship Competition. What’s Different, And What’s Not, About […]

Bunny’s Happy Tail

Bunny's Happy Tail

My name is Shelley Ackerman and this is the Happy Tail about my deaf dog Bunny. I lost my hearing suddenly in the Spring of 2008, and lost my job and life as I knew it at the same time. While battling to keep my head above water financially, going through surgery and adapting to my new life – I fell into a deep depression. With the love of my family and friends, I came to terms with my new life and new way of hearing with a cochlear implant, but was alone most of the day, being unable to work full time again. In the fall of 2009, while accompanying a friend who was interested in adopting a dog to our local shelter (Humane Society of Ocean City NJ), one dog inparticular stood out. The other dogs were literally jumping off the walls and barking, while Bunny laid on […]

Bianca’s Happy Tail

Bianca's Happy Tail

I got my 1st Italian Greyhound about 7 years ago. She was 3 months old and I named her Sophie. She has always been the most obedient, quiet little dog I’ve even owned. When she was about 2 years old I thought how nice it would be to get another one for her to play with, even though she was content to sit on her bed in the sunbeam with her paws crossed. I saw a white Italian Greyhound who was born to 2 gorgeous show dogs. Out of that litter there were 2 white females; one could hear and one couldn’t. The breeder was looking for a special home for the deaf pup. I emailed the breeder and told her I already knew sign language. I was a member of A.L.D.A. The Association of Late Deafened Adults. I was hearing but belonged to this group to brush up on my signing skills. I believed I had […]
