Getting and Training a Deaf Dog

I decided to write a post that would do just that - raise awareness about deaf dogs. I also wanted to help answer some questions that people who are considering adopting and training a deaf dog might ask. In order to do this, I needed to seek the help of someone much more knowledgeable about the subject, so I recruited Seattle Dog Trainer Stormi King for an interview.

Stormi had originally gotten in touch with me when she heard I was photographing for the Deaf Dog photo book. When she said she had a deaf American Pit Bull Terrier named Jack who had his Canine Good Citizen certificate, his United Kennel Club Companion Dog obedience title, and was titled as a therapy dog, I knew I had to photograph Jack for the book!

Read the interview with Stormi.
