Deaf And Blind Dog Training - Reward Markers
This tutorial covers how to train a reward marker using a touch cue. It is catered to a dog who is both deaf and blind. Reward markers can be a useful training tool, similar to using a clicker with a dog that can hear. They can help train behaviors by marking the exact moment the dog exhibits the behavior you want to reinforce.
Training is a great way to strengthen the bond with your dog, as well as boost their confidence and keep them safe!
Training should be a fun experience for both you and your dog. If you find yourself getting frustrated, take a break. If you find that your dog is not understanding, lessen the criteria, and make sure to set your dog up for success!
While these methods have worked for us, it is important to remember that every dog is different and what works for one, may not work for another.
