Baby Sign Language - Dog

Pointing to your pet dog is a great way to introduce the baby sign for dog. Even if you don't have a pet dog, you can point to a picture of a dog in a story book.

Dog is signed with your right hand at your thigh. Use the B hand shape with your palm facing your body. Tap your thigh several times as if calling a dog.

Discover more baby signs at the Babystrology baby sign language dictionary.

Is snapping your finger and patting your leg a variation for the word "dog?"

Hi Dana, you're correct. Snapping your finger and patting your leg are both variations for "dog" in baby sign language. The leg pat is often easier for babies to do.
