HLAA KY Home Chapter November 2020 Meeting Recording - "Have You Ever Thought About Having A Hearing/Mobility Assistance Dog?"

Hearing Assistance Dogs are taught fifty skills and can perform two hundred tasks. Mobility dogs can open and close doors as well as retrieve and carry small items. Hearing dogs are trained to respond to household sounds such as a ringing telephone, appliance buzzers, smoke and security alarms, doorbells, a crying child, sirens or any other sounds that the client needs. Since many  people with hearing loss have balance and mobility issues, they can request a dog trained in both areas.
