Deaf dogs bark, their ears and their vocal chords are not connected. ;) In fact, in my experience, deaf dogs tend to be noisier than their hearing counterparts, not only barking but vocalizing in general. It's possible he'll always be a quiet dog. IMO, that's not a bad thing!

Here's part 1 of a 4-part article on teaching a dog to fetch: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dogtrainingexperiences/message/1074?source=1 To read parts 2, 3, and 4, just click on "Next" (and, if necessary, click on Continue to Message). Some dogs just aren't interested in fetching until they're older - one of my dogs didn't learn to play fetch until she was over a year old, now she's obsessed with playing fetch.
