Description

Deaf Dog Activities - adapting agility, scentwork, canicross and rally obedience for deaf dogs This webinar will provide an overview of working with deaf (and visually impaired) dogs in class and 1-2-1 situations and answer common questions about choosing signs, reward markers and vibration collars. We’ll then move on to consider some of the more popular dog sports (Rally/Competition Obedience, Agility, TD Scentwork, Cani-cross and more) and explore how to adapt foundation skills training to suit the needs of deaf dogs. Where possible we’ll use video examples, and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Webinar Objectives Appreciate how deaf dogs’ learning needs may differ from hearing dogs, and where visual impairment fits into the picture Consider adaptations to class layout which will benefit deaf dogs (and hearing dogs) Understand how to teach the core skills for the following disciplines to a deaf dog: TD Rally/Competition Obedience, Agility, TD Scentwork, Cani-cross and more
