Why Teach Dogs Hand Signals

When teaching a dog basic obedience commands I always incorporate hand signals. Why would I do this type of training?:

  1. Dogs are very visual they learn quickly by watching body language.
  2. Words do not mean that much to them they learn by the tone of your voice and certain body motions.
  3. In my class, I have a session called silent training most owners are surprised how quickly a dog response to just hand signals.
  4. Hand signals keeps a dogs attention more on you than surroundings.
  5. If your dog is semi-deaf or deaf hand signals are a wonderful way to train.
  6. If the owner can’t talk it is the best option to train their dog.
  7. Training with hand signals is fun and a great way to impress your family and friends.
