Sign Language?

Brutus is not getting any younger (10 1/2) and his hearing is going so I've decided to be proactive and teach him some hand signals (American sign language).

We are starting with the following:

Sleep



Play



Dinner




Cookie (treat)



Bathroom




I don't know how successful it will be. I plan on working with both Miley and Brutus on these commands. Wish us luck!

  1. Good luck with the hand signs!!!! Marty actually knows several..none of which I am responsible for! Apparently someone in his cloudy past spent some time with him and I stumbled upon the knowledge that he indeed knows some! Can't wait to hear how you do!

  2. Good idea, Stacy!

    I might be hitting you up for some tips since Molly is now stone deaf. (Although she can still hear the treat bag open.)

  3. Wow - that's an impressive project! I'd say learn the sign for cookies before anything else!!
