Q&A: What all are service dogs for the deaf trained to do?

Question by SayWhat?: What all are service dogs for the deaf trained to do?

I lost my hearing and I want to get my dog certified as a service dog. She has not been “trained” to be a service dog-but I have had her so long, I know how to read her actions so that they help me know what noises are going on around me. For instance, I know when someone is at the door, or an alarm is going off. The way she reacts to certain noises helps me with the noises.
the purpose of the certification would be so that she is allowed places other dogs (pets) are not. Such as airplanes

Service dogs are trained as puppies. If you already know how to read your dog’s actions then you don’t need her to be certified.

  • they are supposed to notify and recognize signs to tell the deaf what is going on, like they are not supposed to walk when there are cars coming, phone ringing, door knocking, ect.

  • They are trained to give the owner a signal for when the phone rings, doorbell rings or traffic comes e.t.c.

  • She will be trained

    1. To alert you about the door or an alarm

    2. Let you know if someone is behind you

    3. Say your name is Lisa someone will call out Lisssaa She will run to the person and see what they want then come get you.

    4. She will wear a vest that lets people know you cannot hear so you do not have to.

    5. If she is ever barking and you cannot see what is wrong, call a friend because she is trying to tell you something. My friend was saved from carbon dixode posion by her dog.

    ALWAYS listen to her!

  • Hearing Ear dogs are trained to indicate various important noises in a hearing-impaired person’s environment. You can self-train your dog to be a Hearing Ear dog, but the dog does need to have advanced obedience and manners (a Service Dog can be excused for inappropriate behavior) and consistant indicators for it’s handler. Your best bet is to consult a professional trainer to help you.

  • I’m pretty sure they have to be professionally trained and certified in order to be hearing dogs. I don’t know how much they have to know, but I don’t think they’ll let a pet be certified unless you have her retrained professionally.
