Melbourne, September 7 (ANI): A deaf dog is learning sign language with the help of her carer.

Coffs Harbour specialist Liz Grewal has taught Pixie, a border collie, to sit, drop and come forth through her hand commands.

"Dogs understand your body language, your hand gestures, they read all of that. They know," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

She added: "Consistency is the key to training any dog but you have to emphasise it more with a deaf dog. You've to train them in a different way, they train quicker than a hearing dog as there are no noise distractions."

Liz has been an owner of deaf dogs for six years and presently owns four of them.

She said: "I want these dogs to have a fantastic life, and I know they can do it." (ANI)
