Deaf Woman Teaches Deaf Dog Tricks Using Sign Language

Becca sitting in a chair and signing to her deaf dog

If you think sign language is only for communicating with other human beings, think twice! Rebecca Malstrom, a gymnast and a student, became deaf at the age of 15. She has a dog, Molly, who is deaf too. Rebecca (Becca) has been teaching Molly some really neat tricks using ASL, and it’s really amazing how well Molly responds to Becca’s gestures in sign language!

Watch the videos below to see how Becca shakes hands and tells molly to sit using ASL.
