Hearing dogs are trained to alert the deaf and hard of hearing to household sounds such as:
- Smoke/fire alarms
- Kitchen timers
- Baby cries
- Phone ringing
- And more, depending on the needs of the individual
These sounds are important for safety and independence. Hearing dogs are trained to physically make touch and lead their person to the source of the sound. Many of these dogs are trained for working in-home only. When deemed necessary, we also train dogs that help their person with increased awareness of their environment while in public. By providing sound awareness and companionship, these dogs provide increased freedom and independence.
