Hearing Dogs

Happy Tails recently received funding from the Arizona Community Foundation for the purpose of starting a new Hearing Dog Program. Our first Hearing Dog class kicked off September 7, 2006

Hearing Dogs can assist Deaf or Hard of Hearing Individuals by alerting them to sounds such as:

    • Smoke Alarm
    • Knock or Doorbell
    • Alarm Clock
    • Phone/TTY

    • Kitchen Timer

Hearing Dogs help people live more independently and are loving, dependable companions.
