What does Hearing Dogs for Deaf People do?
1. We train clever dogs to help deaf people
That’s what we do in a nutshell – we train dogs to alert deaf people to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – sounds that many people take for granted like the doorbell, alarm clock and even danger signals like the fire alarm. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives, and can even save them.
2. Hearing dogs help deaf people reconnect with life
But our clever canines do so much more than alert their recipient to sounds. Deafness can be a very isolating disability. A hearing dog can give a deaf person a newfound sense of independence and confidence now they have a loyal companion and a true friend by their side.
3. Our dogs have even saved lives
As if this wasn’t enough – hearing dogs have saved countless lives in their important role; fire alarms sounding at the dead of night, alerting them to the shouts of a loved one who is in peril, even saving their deaf partners from potential car thieves!
Dogs are known for their loyalty and love – and we see these valuable traits in a hearing dog every day.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors - we're adding to the list as we speak!
