  1. Alisha, I just adopted a pitbull puppy, pure white and deaf. He is very smart, but very anxious since he is now only 3 months old. I also have a Boston terrier and two shitzhus who are not deaf and are helping me show Ice (my deaf boy) how to do things. I do have a question tho. I have been told that using a vibration collar will help get his attention when not near me … I'm not sure how I feel about it … wondering what your thoughts are ?

  2. Did you notice that as you were talking and signing to the camera, every time you signed "sit", he sat. Three times! On the third time, he moved himself in front of you like, "Hey, Mama…I AM sitting!" LOL

  4. If your dog just wants to play when you are trying to train a trick. Exercise them before the lesson. A tired dog is a happy dog. They will still want the treat, they just won't have all that pent up energy stopping them from focusing.
    You could even try training after they eat (if you feed them on a schedule). They will still like the tasty treat, but won't be in such a hurry.

  7. there is a website & facebook page called Deaf Dogs Rock – I highly recommend it …great info and a lot of support for new deaf dog owners or anyone interested in adopting deaf – they post the animals in need of a home from around the u.s.

  8. yes I took ASL courses ๐Ÿ™‚ you should take some, they're fun. It will take a couple college semesters and you'll be conversationally fluent …I took classes for much longer because I became an interpreter. I had to learn all the random things that might come up … which takes much longer. Just learning a few phrases/signs is good enough for owning a deaf dog though ๐Ÿ™‚ they will love you if you just can communicate the basics and show the rest in emotion.

  14. How long did it take you to learn ASL, and did you do courses? I have a 9 month old hearing puppy and am looking to get a 8-9 week old deaf dalmatian puppy in a few weeks and want to teach both ASL while passing time for puppy class. I found your videos very helpful and you should look into making a little video for more in depth information on each sign! Thanks Alisha and Rocket ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. So glad I found you on you tube! We found out our Boston terrier was deaf the day before we were going to pick her up. Her name is rose and she's 9 weeks old. There is not a lot of information out there to help raise of deaf pup. If you could help us with any information at all that would be great.

  16. start the sooner the better, but have a lot of patience at 7 weeks old it is very young still. Find out what it likes best and use that, sometimes dogs are more toy driven than treat driven ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck have fun & give your pup a lot of love

  17. Great video!!! This really helps me! I have a 7 week old Australian Cattle Dog named Zoe and have recently found out she is deaf. I want to teach her to learn signs, but she will not focus on what I am trying to teach her… She just wants the treats, and plays. Lol (: Do you have any advice on making her pay attention to me, or on what age to start training her? Thank you! (:

  20. Thank you for the great video. Question, when do you incorporate the sign? You mentioned to do the motion over his head but is that the sign? The motion over his head?
