Description

There are more deaf dogs than you might imagine, enjoying life just as hearing dogs do. A lot of puppies that are born deaf are euthanized, but a deaf dog isn’t significantly disabled; he still has his fine nose and his eyes, which are far more important faculties to a dog. When a deaf dog misbehaves, it’s usually not because he is aggressive or disobedient; generally, it’s because his owner is unaware of the best way in which to communicate with and handle his dog. 

This invaluable book will sympathetically help owners of deaf and hard-of-hearing dogs not just to accept their loyal companions for what they are, but also explain how, with love and careful thought, they and their dog can get the maximum out of life, having fun and establishing an even closer bond as they help each other find new or adapted ways to live together. Life with a deaf dog • Communication with deaf dogs • Case histories from owners  • How to train a deaf dog • Interviews with vets • Interviews with breeders • Giving confidence to owners of deaf dogs • Disproving prejudices against deaf dogs

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
