Vibration commands could be used to guide search-and-rescue dogs who are out of earshot of their handler. And for ordinary pet owners, they could aid communication with deaf dogs, or between people with speech impairments and their canines. Research was non-invasive and painless. Many of the scientists' colleagues have volunteered their own pet dogs for future experiments. Read more in "Vibrating dog vest may let you 'talk' to your pup without saying a word"
