Crate training is simply a must.  For your deaf dog, their crate can be their happy place – where they eat, where they sleep, where they have peace and safety.

Positive reinforcement training is at the heart of successful crate training – our deaf dogs eat all of their meals in their crates, have learned to run to their crates for treats and special toys, and now think of their crates as their caves, a sanctuary.  Now when our young boxer is wound up and tearing around destroying the house, we can give the sign for crate and he runs to it and gets a treat, instantly stopping the zoomie cycle!

And a good crate is a must.  We use these by Midwest Homes.  They are sturdy, fold, have two doors which allows for a variety of placements, and last a LONG time.  There are less expensive models also shown below that just have one door – that may be all you need.

Additionally, they are excellent for car travel – it is always a good idea to secure your dog in a vehicle.
