Deaf Dog Training 101

Equipment Needed

  • Remote vibration collar
  • Regular leash and regular martingale collar
  • High value treats (usually, cut up pieces of hot dog work well)

Training Steps

  • Condition attention getting with vibration and develop your positive visual marker
  • Introduce Sit with visual arm signal
  • Introduce a casual “come over to me” (not really a formal recall yet, but it’s just a remedial exercise to help with introducing Loose leash waking)
  • Loose leash Walking (This exercise may be very similar to the regular loose leash walking exercise with the exception of adding your arm signal to cue ”come over to me” exercise if he looks confused when he gets the leash guidance when he runs out of the full length of the leash)
