  • Training Hearing and Deaf Pups

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone here has trained a hearing and deaf pup at the same time? If so, I'd love to hear your experiences!

    I doubt you'll get anyone here in that situation, because most on here would generally avoid two pups at once, which would decreased the likelihood that of those who've done it one was deaf. There are members on here with deaf dogs. Here is my favorite resource for deaf dogs and their training:

    Read away! I'd make this only the beginning of your training reading. There is a stickied thread on DOL with book recommendations.

        For my deaf girl we used a flashlight instead of a clicker. If you are not familiar with clicker training, google it. The flashlight worked great.

        Later on, we also used a remote collar to signal to her to "come" so she could be off leash (in a SAFE enviroment) with the other dogs.

        ANY kind of training takes time, patience and consistency. If you haven't already, contact trainers who are familiar with training deaf dogs. It's not rocket science, but it does take a little practice.

        Still hoping you will reconsider supporting this "breeder" and find a puppy through a reputable source.
