Q. I have a deaf dog and I have problems with her pulling me out of the card. I keep her on a leash but she is so wild. What can I do?
Hi,

I have a deaf australian shepherd and she is really a good dog except she can't hear. So I keep her on a reel leash or a run line. Am afraid she will get hit by a car or truck as she can't hear traffic.

My problem is that when she gets out of the truck(on a reel leash) she takes off running so am wondering if a choke lease collar would be a training tool for her. She pulled me out of the truck onto the ground and am recovering from bruises. Did not beat the dog!

How can I train her without being mean to her. Need help. She is spayed and only 7 months old.

A. There is no reason a deaf dog cannot be obedience trained.

Get a PRONG COLLAR read about them on my web site.

If I had a deaf dog I would train it with food, hand signals and a prong collar. Later an electric collar. Some of the electric collars I sell have a vibrating buzzer that could be used in training.

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
