Teaching A Deaf and Blind Dog to Sit
Training in general can be difficult and there are always varying sources and opinions. When it comes to training a deaf and blind dog, there is very little information available.
This video is a simple how-to when it comes to training a deaf and blind dog to sit. Keep in mind that the "tap" you'll see in the video is a gentle touch used only to communicate intent.
As with any training session, always keep it simple, short, and positive. Involve a lot of treats and reward frequently! Training is a great way to strengthen the bond with your dog, as well as boost their confidence and keep them safe!
Training should be a fun experience for both you and your dog. If you find yourself getting frustrated, take a break. If you find that your dog is not understanding, lessen the criteria, even just by luring your dog into different positions with a treat. You want to set your dog up for success!
