Pro tip: remember to teach your puppy hand signals as well as verbal commands so that when they start to go deaf when they’re older they can deliberately turn their back on you and pretend they can’t see you calling them

@checkervest thank god backtalk will remain with or without hearing

@checkervest or you can get a cat, it will ignore you from the beginning

@deshipu I mean this dog ignored me when she could hear, she’s just got a different way to ignore me now

@checkervest Another human behavior learned by dogs. My grandfather used to do that. Turn off hearing aid, turn back on Granny.
