A hearing dog is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person who is deaf or hard of hearing. Hearing dogs are permitted to accompany the person in all areas where members of the public are allowed.
Our dogs are interested in the sounds they hear and can help by alerting you to sounds that may be difficult for you to hear. Enhance your independence and increase your personal safety by teaching your dog to alert you to sounds such as these:
- Unheard dropped items such as keys or coins
- Sirens when out walking or driving
- Kitchen timer, doorbell, or telephone
- Smoke alarm
- A car approaching
- Alarm clock
