Anyone have any suggestions for disciplining a deaf

Many thanks,

The scruffing will probally still work. It actually would make it
easier to
gain control of him to make him face you. Then do a sign with your
hand. It
doesn't have to be a sign from ASL, the sign language for the deaf.
Just pick
a hand movement for the bad thing, and repeat it everytime for that
thing. Ferrets can learn many signs. I know with my four. The are
hearing, but have learned hearing words and signs for the same
thing, good
and bad.
