Shaolin I agree, using the collar might be your best bet. The only other advice I can offer is that I use a signal of putting my hand under the dog's mouth and opening/closing my hand once. I lose my voice for several days during season changes and whenever I get a bad cold, so I built in hand signals into training for when I can't talk. I learned the signals from my mum who had several deaf dogs over the years.

Mary Beth I agree with Baillif on the e collar with a vibration. Gentle Leader has one that is used with deaf dogs. For the hand signal, your hand - palm up facing the dog, may work.

Baillif If I had a deaf dog I'd get an e collar with a vibration setting and train him to look at me when he felt the pulses and then I'd give some sort of hand signal from there.

brembo I stomped the floor to get attention with my deaf dog. Does not work outside, but in the house it's very effective.

leave it command for deaf dog

Does anyone know what signal I would use for the "leave it" command for a deaf dog?
