LHS Dog of The Week: Meet York!

York is an Aussie/Catahoula mix, she is a year old and weighs 55 lbs.
 
York is deaf but she doesn’t let that stop her, she is very smart and catches on to routines very quickly.  She has been taught sign language commands and is working on more training.  York is being trained on nine different sign commands; sit, stay, no, want/give, car, come, play, ball, and potty/outside.

She is good with “sit” but with new people she just needs compliance training one or two times. She understands “no” and usually complies the first time if you get her attention when you give the sign.

We show her the potty sign before we put her out and she understands if shown the sign in the house to go to the back door.  “Ball,” “play,” “car” and “come” are a work in progress but improving daily.
