Any dog owner with special needs would be able to communicate with other dog owners by teaching them sign language commands.However, many people now train their dogs using both verbal and sign language.
If your dog does not understand what you are saying verbally, learning sign language is a backup option because dogs typically have good eyesight.
Laura London, a dog trainer, was recently on a mission to assist Igor, who was hard of hearing. London had made the decision to assist the disabled owner by instructing his dog to obey his commands.
He had previously given the name Susie to a rescue dog he had adopted.London wanted to demonstrate to the owner how service dogs act. Additionally, she had decided to assist Susie in determining when to assist Igor.
As a result, she taught the small dog how to tell Igor when his phone or doorbell rang.However, she naturally began her training with the proprietor first.
The transformation of the rescue dog into a service dog that would assist its owner whenever he required it was London’s primary objective.
Jack was hired as an interpreter because Igor had trouble speaking and hearing.Everything she was going to teach him, Jack would interpret.”The clicker” was the name of the trick she planned to use.
Igor was instructed by London to press the clicker with one finger while holding it in one hand.Susie learned from this exercise that a click signified a reward.
Additionally, it would indicate that she had done the right thing.Later, she asked Igor to carry out the same instructions she had given to Susie.
She later instructed Igor in dog sign language.London demonstrated to Igor how to teach his dog to obey the command “Sit & Lay down.”
London, on the other hand, was aware that teaching a dog about helping the deaf would be difficult.She assigned them some work and informed them that she would soon be back with more advanced training.
