Deaf Dog Myth # 5

Deaf Dog Myth # 5
If I adopt a deaf dog I won't be able to do ___
(agility, therapy, obedience, rally, etc)

Deaf dogs are most certainly out there and participating in dog sports and activities!  Many are competing and winning titles and awards.  Deaf dogs learn very quickly to watch our body language cues.  Training my deaf dogs has made me a better handler for all my dogs, even my hearing dogs.  They have made me aware of how just a slight change in my posture or body language can communicate so much to my dogs! 


  1. people ALWAYS underestimate the affect of any disability - as a disabled person myself I know it only to well
