About Hearing Dogs For Deaf People
What Hearing Dogs For Deaf People does in a nutshell is train really intelligent dogs to help deaf people. The organisation works to train dogs so they provide alerts to deaf people to sounds they cannot hear. These are usually sounds ordinary people take for granted such as a doorbell or alarm clock. Some sounds can mean the difference between life and death such as a fire alarm. A hearing impaired person with a trained dog can lead a full and healthy life and these dogs do make a real difference.
The dogs also bring visibility to their owners hearing condition courtesy of their burgundy jackets which they wear in public. Hearing impairment is often called the invisible disability because there is no wheel chair or white stick so the dogs perform an important role in alerting the general public. Hearing Dogs For Deaf People enables a hearing impaired person feel independent and free courtesy of the dog provided by the organisation
