Training Modifications for Blind Dogs. When using methods such as lure and reward or reward-marker (clicker) training, teaching a blind dog is remarkably similar to working with a sighted dog, though you may obviously rely more heavily on verbal cues (or touch cues for dogs that are both deaf and blind) than on hand signals or body language.

Living With A Blind Dog: 12 Tips To Help With Training And

7 hours ago Yourdogadvisor.com Show details

1. What can cause blindness in dogs? Dogs can be born blind or they can develop blindness as a result of various conditions including cataracts, different types of retinal disease, optic nerve damage from glaucoma, an injury or accident or SARDS which is a sudden blindness disorder specific to dogs.
2. Make sure your home is a safe, blind-proofed environment. When a blind dog first moves into a new home or a dog has become blind, their environment can be confusing and overwhelming.
3. Don’t stop the blind dog from bumping into things altogether- it is an important part of their learning. Whilst you obviously don’t want blind dogs to become stressed or to injure themselves against a hazardous object it is important to let your blind dog ‘feel’ their way around the house and garden so that they can work out their orientation.
4. Routine is important for a blind dog. Try not to make any household changes without introducing your dog to them carefully. Don’t always shuffle your furniture around, this will confuse your dog’s mental map and could stress them out or increase the chance of an injury.
5. Consider the importance of clear vocal commands & gentle touch with a blind dog. When a dog loses their sight they can go through an initial period of feeling, understandably, very disoriented and they can be more anxious and fearfu l than normal.
6. Handy commands for blind dogs. You may want to use specific commands for blind dogs that will be useful for helping your dog navigate. “Watch/Wait” is a common one, used when teaching them they are coming towards an obstruction in their path and that they need to slow down/move.
7. Utilise the other senses of the blind dog. Dogs already have a super strong sense of smell. When they lose their sight, their other senses can become even more heightened.
8. Don’t confine blind dogs to their “safe zone” Whilst it is important to help your dog feel safe and relaxed when they first lose their sight, once they settle into their life without their vision, it is very important not to shelter them too much.
9. Don’t pick up blind dogs too much! Another bad habit that owners can fall into, out of the best of intentions, is feeling you always have to pick them up to protect them.
10. Make sure a blind dog has lots of enrichment. Don’t let your dog become introverted. You want them to be just as stimulated and engaged as a full-sighted dog.

4 Fundamentals Of Blind Retrieves Ducks Unlimited

2 hours ago Ducks.org Show details

1. The third necessary skill for effective blinds requires the dog to hunt the fall area thoroughly. This is where the nose counts. What we want are effective game finders trained to hunt cover, marsh or thickets on command after a whistle stop. The dog's drive on the line is interrupted in the general area of the fall. Wind direction must be considered. The "hunt" command causes the dog to devour the area in a methodical search for the bird. The dog should remain (or hold) in the area, land or water, throughout the hunt unless otherwise directed. The competent retriever should also possess the perseverance to handle diving, wounded waterfowl and the skill to track runners (injured birds making an escape) as often occurs.

7 Tips For Living With A Blind Dog – Dogster

Just Now Dogster.com Show details

1. Use smell. It is true what they say; a dog’s primary sense is smell, not sight. We capitalized on that by using fragrant oils to mark certain spots in the house -– his bed, the door, etc., — so that by smelling his surroundings, he could find his way around.
2. Don’t move things. Dogs create a map in their brain of where things are, so DON’T move the furniture. Whenever we took Tino to a new environment, he would slowly circle the room to learn where things were, and once he had that map, he was pretty good and rarely bumped into something.
3. Use tactile sensations. When Tino first lost his sight, we put down runners of a different material than our carpets so he could feel the different texture with his paws and use that to know where he was in the house.
4. Their hearing still works! We taught Tino new commands such as “step” and “wait” so we could provide more guidance around obstacles. We also installed wind chimes outside the back door where the dog door was, so he could use the sound to orient himself and find his way to the door.
5. Get different toys. Tino loved fetch, so we got new balls that had a constant beep or alarm sound, so that he could still track them and enjoy a game of fetch.
6. Be watchful around other dogs. Make sure your other dogs are okay with their space being invaded. We were lucky that our other family dogs seemed to sense Tino’s disability, and if he stepped on them or too near their food, they just moved out of his way.
7. Relax. Dogs are much more adaptable then people and tend to live in the moment and take things in stride. Being blind did not stop Tino from fully enjoying his life.
