Training aids are of huge interest to all dog owners. Especially for those with deaf dogs, a training collar that will allow long distance recall and attention is a great tool. BUT, you have to make sure it is a VIBRATION ONLY collar. It is simply inhumane and lazy training to shock any dog in any circumstance.

It is hard to trust the manners of others, and you shouldn’t! In some situations you may want people to know your dog is deaf. There are a variety of products available with “deaf dog” letters, we look for quality buckles (not cheap plastic snaps) and overall heavy duty construction.

Having good quality tags that provide contact information for your deaf pup is an essential. And, many like to indicate that their pup is deaf as well on these tags. The more information the better if your dog gets lost!

Whoever at KONG designed this toy is simply a genius! The KONG Jumbler line of toys have a ball inside a ball. The inside ball rattles around and holds your dogs attention, and the outside shell is incredibly tough.

If you have deaf dogs, hair is a part of your life. It is not an overstatement to say that this vacuum changed our lives!

We had a sneaking suspicion that our previous top-brand vacuum wasn’t doing the job, so we decided to check out this highly rated upright by Shark. We thoroughly vacuumed with our old unit then went over it again with the Shark. It was amazing (and maybe a little disturbing) how much hair and dirt it picked up from previously vacuumed rugs. We had been living with that much dirt for a long time!

We love the idea of this product – make bathing easier!! This pad sticks to the wall and you can smear it with peanut butter or other treats, easily gives you enough time to get a quick bath done on your pup.

Might also help for nail trimming? Share any ideas you have for this.

Terrie Hayward is not only a wonderful person – but is also a well respected author and authority on dog training. We at Deaf Dogs Rock have long recommended this book as a valuable resource for deaf dog owners, and are happy to share comments from our community members like Lisa V. who writes “I like this book because it is an easy read for people and also gives a good amount of detail into deafness in dogs along with how to train.”

We are strong believers in a “double-fail” system – that is, two things need to go wrong for something bad to happen like a dog getting loose. This leash by Stunt Puppy is excellent in this regard. It fastens around your waist for hands-free when needed, but also has a lower loop handle for control of your pup in closer quarters.

Summer weather means it is time to start thinking about protecting your deaf pup from the sun! As a majority of deaf dogs are low on pigment, this also often makes their skin much more susceptible to burning from the sun. And, they may overheat more quickly.
