Hearing dogs

8 Feb

More recent still, the hearing-ear dog profession has been developed. Just as guide dogs for the blind are trained to enable the owner to carry out their lives whilst remain safe and aware of their surroundings, these dogs learn to alert their deaf owner of noises such as when a phone rings, a car is coming, or to the sound of a fire alarm. Hearing Dogs for Deaf People was launched at Crufts in 1982 and is now a world-leader in training hearing dogs to alert deaf recipients to important sounds and danger signals[1].
