I had, for a short time, a deaf border collie, but he really needed to be kept with other dogs so he had an example to follow. With us, he started acting like a cat, literally. If one cat slept on the picnic table, he clambered up there and did too. He was such a good dog, I felt so bad I couldn't keep him but we could only have one dog. Fortunately, his original owner took him back and found a good home for him.
The divider is only temporary, four weeks at most while I QT some panda cories to go in there.
Hey Bettawolf, don't spend your paycheck before you even finish training!
