Hi. I've posted another thread regarding resource guarding and in respect of this, I need my son to be able to build up more respect from our dog. To do that, it's important that he can work on as many aspects of his training as possible. The problem is, my son has multiple learning difficulties and doesn't speak. He uses hand signals when training Alfie but I'm running out of signals. All the basic commands (sit, down, stand, stay etc) are fine, as are a few tricks (spin, stand on back legs, shake hands, high five) but as we're becoming more advanced, it's difficult to think up signals that are easy to use and recognise. For example. We use pointing to the right leg for him to go 'figure of eight' starting on the right and point to the left leg for him to go the opposite way. Now I'm stumped for a signal for the finish after a stay and return. I'm also teaching him to shut the door, and can't think of a signal for that, either. And the toys are a huge problem because he can differentiate between several of them by verbal command but how on earth do people come up with signals for each of them? If anybody has any ideas for hand signals that we could use, please, please post them. My son really needs to be able to work with Alfie, too.
