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 dogs Nitro, Bud, Bowie and myself, Paul Klein totally ROCKS! Happy deaf dog training Rockers!
