About Our Hearing Dogs

Who They Help

Our hearing dogs are trained to alert people who are D/deaf or deaf to sounds. Sometimes these alerts keep people out of unsafe situations, other times, the dogs alert to sounds that their handler encounters in their daily life.

What They Do

Our hearing dogs:

  • Alert handler to every day sounds like a phone, timer, alarm clock, doorbell, microwave, etc…
  • After the alert, the dog brings the handler to the sound. 

    Alert handler to a smoke alarm. 
  • The dogs use their body language to alert their handlers to people behind them, cars approaching, people calling their name, or a novel sound out in public.
Spotlight on

Brooklyn and Eric

We trained Brooklyn to alert Eric, who is deaf, to important sounds. Eric bonded with him the moment they met. Eric is completely dedicated to their relationship as a team and as friends. As a team, it’s not just about Brooklyn’s alerts, Eric is so in tune with his dog, that he can tell when there is a loud sound because of Brooklyn’s subtle ear movements. It is this dedication and affection, along with AFF service dog trainers, that made Brooklyn the incredible hearing dog he is today.

One of the most endearing things about their relationship is their little rituals. Brooklyn gives Eric a kiss every time he gets in the car and before he gets out. These moments of consistency are important for service dogs, but also important for the canine-human bond.
