    Extremely helpful advice and practical tips for training a deaf dog. Not particularly well written, but a well crafted sentence doesn’t help me teach Ezra to sit and stay, so who cares.

    I liked this book and learned several important things from it - first the whole pack leader concept that has been being touted for what seems like my entire life. How good to know that I don't have to put my dogs on their back and growl in their face, nor otherwise establish myself as their alpha - I have always felt that this was weird and couldn't imagine how it wouldn't be horribly confusing for a dog.

I also appreciated learning more about positive reinforcement training and though I already use far more rewards and "good dog"s! than I do "NO!"s I am committed to removing that word/sign from my vocabulary.

    A good beginning dog training book focusing on positive reinforcement. However, I was expecting more ideas for training deaf dogs specifically. Several sections are also just a mishmash of the words of other professionals without a lot of connection. Still a decent starting point.

    I didn’t find the book offered that much info for deaf dogs specifically. I am already really informed on positive training, so those aspects didn’t speak to me. However, this would be great for an inexperienced owner who gets any dog (deaf or hearing).

    YES!!!! A fantastic book for anyone with a deaf dog. As a dog trainer I've trained a few so I read this to see if it was worth recommending to owners in the future. Clear and concise. It explains how to properly use positive training techniques to best effect. YES!!!! A fantastic book for anyone with a deaf dog.

    I honestly didn't find this book very helpful. It's very short, but does have some resources you can check out that might be helpful. I honestly didn't find this book very helpful. It's very short, but does have some resources you can check out that might be helpful.

    Short but Sweet This was a quick introduction to working with and training a deaf dog. I would have liked to see a more laid out training plan included in this book.
