Bo Peep Posted September 14, 2007 Report Share Posted September 14, 2007 I had a dog go deaf. Before she went deaf, she had already known her obedience signs. My grand kids were taking beginning signing in school and taught me some signs. I used them on Miss Lacey- they worked. My final sign to her was "thank you" when she was PTS. Anyway, onto better things. I tried one hour of silence with Usher- me, not him-LOL. I only used sign gestures in obedience and the ones I use around the house, like back off or go take a break, watch, etc... After an hour, the dog that never listens (my mom was asleep during this and the TV was off) I whispered "Usher" and he came !!!!! I whispered very soft. Sit, Stay and I moved around the room. It was great!!! So, Is this a new trick or am I stupid? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
