    DefaultSignals given by hand to you're dog ...

    Does you're dog understand them, if you give "hand signals" to her ?

    Because, since i've walk a lot in the forrests over here, ans there's a lot of wild spotting to do, we have to be as silence as we can be, so hand signals is a good way to communicate with Laika on this moment, and she just understand six signals already ;D

    1. wait - hand waved in front of face
    2. stay - hand in front of face
    3. come - a crooked finger just like you'd do with a human
    4. lie down - hand pushed down towards floor

    cinney can recognize when i put my left or right arm out that that is the way i want her to move but other then that. i point to the floor when i want her to lay down but other then those, she's too antzy to learn any others. i would love to teach her other signs.

    wait, sit, down, ok(release from stay), rollover,shake

    i'd like to start teaching him more, he seems to be very eager to learn right now. When we do training sessions, he gets frothy at the mouth he's so excited to be working like that.

    I use hand singles more than verbal signals. In fact, I can direct them through an obedience workout using purely hand singals.

    Snicks is well trained on "sit" and "down" hand signals.

    In theory, she is trained on "stay" too, but we really need to work on that!

    Our guys have a handful of hand signals they will respond to. Sit, down, stay, wait, heel, and roll-over (not a real OB request, but heck, they still respond to it.)

    The one I use the most often is "drop-sit" command when I call her to me. That or she will run into me and 92 pounds (42 kilos) of dog running into my body is not my idea of fun. I also use "stay," "down," and "wait" a lot.

    Kody is very good with sit, down, stay, come, speak, and quiet. We use these on a regular basis and I always mix in hand signals during training.

    My dogs all know hand signals. When Boomer got older she lost her hearing so the hand signals helped me to tell her what I wanted her to do. Now its Remy who is losing her hearing at almost 13 and we do hand signals with her too.
