Deaf Dogs Rock wants to welcome our friend and fellow deaf/blind dog advocate Rose Adler. Rose lives with a beautiful deaf-blind dog named Braille. We sent Rose a (vibration only) and asked her if she would help us help deaf/blind dog families learn about vibration collar recall (come here) training so she put together this wonderful training video for all of you to learn from. Thanks Rose for taking the time to put this educational video together for our Deaf Dogs Rock Community.

When training a deaf dog, the use of a vibration collar like the Educator ET-300TS Mini is essential. Not only is it a helpful tool when teaching your dog simple commands, but it prevents you from having to be within touching-distance of your dog in order to give him a gental tap on the shoulder to get his attention. 2 Dog Training Collar With Remote Vibration Only E-Collar No Shock Pet Trainer Very Humane No Pain Obedience Collars high-quality

Once your dog has become accustomed to wearing the collar, your next step is to "explain" to your dog that you are causing the vibration, and that it means that you want something, even if that is only his attention. Be sure to start this step with no distractions. Keep your dog on a leash and close to you for this phase of the training. Page the dog (press the remote so that the collar will vibrate) and immediately give him a treat. Don't wait for him to look at you or respond in any way to the vibration: page-treat, page-treat. Do this about ten times (giving your dog time to eat the treat, naturally) and then quit. Keep the first few sessions short, approximately 5-10 minutes each. Leave the collar on your dog and repeat the sessions throughout the day (2-3 times is good). The main purpose is to get him used to feeling the vibration and to associate it with you.This is a great gadget. With the multi change vibrations many different behaviors could be shaped. When I first got my deaf dog, I tried to get a company to make a vabrating collar with different types of vibration sequence and nobody was willing to go to that expense. This is just perfect. I have used a simple vibration collar to get a recall while my deaf dog is off leash and it worked like a charm. I would recommend anyone that has a deaf dog to get this collar and use it to teach come, drop on recall, and many other exercises. The only down side is it is not waterproof. It is sure a step in the right direction for training a deaf dog.The BigLeash V-10 Vibration Trainer offers 10 vibration levels plus an audible signal that can be used for training and communicating with your dog, especially when he is too distracted or too far away to hear your verbal command. The vibration signal is safe and effective and is especially good for dogs that are sensitive or hearing impaired. It is the only e-collar with digital FM technology and exclusive ‘In-Touch’™ two-way communication between the hand-held transmitter and the dog’s receiver collar.As an alternative, some collars can be set to deliver a shock, sound, or vibration only when the handler activates them rather than automatic administration based on other criteria. In this way, the dog can be trained to associate barking as a good thing when someone unknown approaches the property, but barking otherwise is not.
