Hello,

My name is Sara and I am a hearing person that is going to be attending ASL courses at Palomar College in Jan.

I started a new group called Studdy Group in San Diego here if anyone is interested in getting together to practice.
I am so very new at it that I'm a bit intimidated to go to groups that are 100% deaf as I can't communicate fluently yet.

I'm also working on a project called Deaf and Dog. It's a documentary on the lives of deaf people and how they live and communicate with their pets, and the rest of their social lives as well.
I am in need of people who would like to participate, so if you want to know more, please feel free to email me at deafanddog@gmail.com

I look forward to meeting new people and starting something BIG!

Are you surprised if dogs are perfectly capable of learning sign? The little guy in my avatar is deaf like me.

Not even a little bit surprised! I've been a pet care professional for many years and worked for dog training facilities. Dogs are smart. BTW, you're dog is a cutie!!

My main objective in a documentary is education. There is a much bigger picture and project behind it, this is just a start.

I'd love to have a facility one day that employs deaf people training dogs sign. I think it will open more job ops and save more pets. That's the jist of it anyways...

Congrats

I too, am working on the same, raised by deaf parents so its easier for me but i'm rusty, i could use some conversation, for practice or answer questions about what i know, as it is, it not proper grammar like the hearing world, at least that how i communicate w ASL. I haven't used my web cam much, I'm willing to practice, if you want some help. :wave: PSS Being a dog lover and trained a few dog a few signs , that sounds so interesting and such a great idea to rescue more dogs, usually rescue are more receptive to training cause they just want to please, and love u for it

Yes, I love to. Currently working on fiquring out how it works on this site. Plus, I'm embarrassed to say, I can't even figure why i can't find the program to at least post a pic, If as if my software doesn't work, So i asked a expert at HP. I hope to rectify the problem soon. Keep in touch, when your ready and what site to web chat on. To get a quicker response you may Email me @ jabez315@gmail.com ; Looking forward to practice : )
