Service description:
Hearing Dogs train and provide dogs to alert deaf children and adults to important household sounds and danger signals such as the alarm clock, doorbell, telephone and smoke alarm - providing independence, confidence and valuable companionship. Their aim is to train a hearing dog to alert to sounds which are specific to the requirements of a deaf person.

They provide dogs for:
• Deaf children
• Deaf adults
• If you are deaf and have another disability (such as a physical disability)

A hearing dog can give a deaf person a sense of independence and confidence. At the moment, they have over 900 working hearing dog partnerships across the UK.

Once a deaf person has been matched with a hearing dog, they are guaranteed a hearing dog for life. So when their first hearing dog retires at about the age of 11, they will be soon partnered with a new dog – and a lot of them keep their former hearing dogs as pets.
