Glenda -- is she ignoring you so she can't 'hear' "NO". (she's deaf right??). It can be tough to get their attention (and they ARE smart enough to NOT look at you when they don't want to KNOW you don't want them to do something. Muffin was THE master at looking at the ceiling when he didn't want to receive "instruction".
You may want to train her with either a light (not a laser, but a small flashlight you can turn on/off fast), OR a sharp rap on something that will transmit vitbration (and that's tough in a car)..
email me if you want -- I had a lot of tricks I used with the deaf dogs I've had -- learning to "pop up" when they aren't expecting you to stand there with your feet apart, hands on your hips (with your hands 'fisted' -- radiate "tension" in your body stance) and give her an absolute "Don't even THINK about it" look).
In the house, vibration will travel really well if you keep a broomstick (yes literally a broomstick) in each room, so you can thump it on the floor a specific number of times -- and you can train that so something like TWO means come now ... 3 **fast** taps means STOP THAT ... but thumping the floor (or a baseboard that is wood -- carpet will dampen the vibration).
But a light flashing and the "taps" -- coordinate those so if 3 'fast' taps means STOP THAT then 3 'fast' blinks of a flashlight means the same thing. But you can "call" a deaf dog with a flashlight easier than anything. It's easier when it's dark BUT you can definitely get their attention with light from a distance..
But she'll try you ... and a lot of times a deaf dog will get ditched because no one has taken the time to really **Enforce** that THIS means ***THIS*** every single solitary time. And no, you can't look at the ceiling and ignore me cos *I* know how to get your attention.
Oh .. and Muffin would tell me I was TERRIBLY remiss if I didn't tell you that one of the 'toys' that a deaf dog often loves is a 'blinky ball'. A ball that flashes upon impact?? It relates to them somehow .. Muffin had about 6,000 games he played with his .. and he always won because HE invented the rules!! Dad could play along .. but ... mere human DON'T think you can win!! You can't. I made all the rules for this! LOL
