The benefits of an hearing dog

Deaf and hard-of-hearing people live in a world where sounds are different: it’s difficult, if not impossible, to perceive some of them, and very complicated to locate them. So how can you ensure your safety in a world where almost everything requires hearing?

The arrival of a hearing assistance dog is life-changing: its mission is to replace the ears and provide reassurance on a daily basis! In France, these dogs have access to every place their owners need to go, without exception: refusal is punishable by law!

A hearing assistance dog means ears... on all fours!

At the end of their long training as hearing dogs, all our dogs are capable of helping and accompanying their recipients in a wide range of situations.

A hearing assistance dog is... a daily help!

In addition to their assistance, our dogs also have the role of bringing a different view of disability and of giving love to their recipients… who give just as much in return!

The disability of deaf and hard-of-hearing people is not necessarily visible, and communication can be blurred in everyday life: people don’t necessarily understand why the person in front of them doesn’t react, or why he or she doesn’t understand them, which can lead to a great deal of frustration…

The presence of an assistance dog, proudly displaying his cape, and his role in helping a disabled person, instantly lifts the mood, and smiles appear: an assistance dog isn’t very common, after all, but don’t forget that he ensures his owner’s safety, so he mustn’t be distracted or touched!

Emotional and moral support

It’s a well-known fact: dogs are man’s best friend!

Having a hearing dog is not just about replacing your ears, it’s also about having a faithful companion with whom to share cuddles, playtime and all kinds of activities that will only strengthen the unique bond that binds a dog to its owner for life!

A dog to help you...
  • restore your self-confidence
  • regain your independence
  • be safe
  • be happy

Helping people who are deaf or hard of hearing is only possible thanks to the generosity of the public: assistance dogs are provided entirely free of charge to their recipients.

Thank you for your support in this wonderful mission!
