Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training hearing dogs to alert deaf people to everyday household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings.
Hearing Dogs started at the world famous Crufts dog show in 1982. Since then they have created over 1,600 life-changing partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs in the UK, thus developing over 750 working partnerships in the country.
The charity trains hearing dogs to warn deaf children and adults when important household sounds and danger signals happen. The dogs are trained to react to the sounds of the alarm clock, doorbell, telephone and smoke alarm - providing independence, confidence and valuable companionship.
The charity trains a small number of Labrador crosses and Cocker crosses alongside Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Cocker Spaniels, Miniature Poodles and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels to make sure that they have the right dog to match each of their applicants.
It takes approximatively18 months to train a hearing dog, consisting of puppy socialisation training with volunteers before moving onto sound work training at one of their two Training Centres.
During this period a suitable recipient for each dog is identified.
Deafness can be a very isolating disability and a hearing dog can offer a life-transforming alternative to technical equipment with the added benefit of providing people greater independence, increased confidence, companionship and a feeling of security.
