    I have severe hearing loss in my right ear and moderate in my left. I don’t hear someone knocking on the door, I don’t hear fire alarms, I don’t hear my alarm, and many other things. I’m scared to get a hearing dog as I don’t want to be judged

    Are people able to take a hearing dog with them like a service dog? Is it considered the same thing, a service and hearing dog?

    I am visual and hearing impaired. Do I need to get 2 separate dogs to do their tasks or I can have just 1 for doing both tasks?

    Hearing dogs are service dogs.

    This might sound dumb, but I have a question. Do deaf people wear hearing aids if they have the dog? I’m trying to learn more.

    Hearing dogs are service dogs people!! That’s just the kind of service dog it is. Just like guide dogs are service dogs. There are many different kinds of service dogs

    Hearing dogs are service animals and service animals don’t ignore when the handler drops something. They can be trained to pick stuff up.

    Does this cost much? Can teens with impaired hearing get a dog?

    This title is misleading. Dogs that help people who have a hearing impairment are service animals.

    First of all, hearing dogs ARE service dogs. Service Dogs will still hear the keys fall, etc. The only difference is that they may not be trained to pick the keys up. They are Service Dogs because they are trained to assist a person with a disability perform everyday tasks.

    Aren’t hearing dogs a service dog trained to perform tasks to help someone who is deaf/hard of hearing? In terms of legal status/access. A hearing dog is a service dog. Service dog is very general term. Most service dogs wont go to the door when they hear a knock because they have not been trained that task. A seizure alert dog is a service dog, even though it probably doesnt open doors when their is a knock. Same thing here. A hearing dog is a service dog even though it doesn’t alert to seizures.

    Service dogs and hearing dogs are the same thing. A service dog is a dog that’s trained to perform at least 1 task to help midigate a persons disability. Hearing dogs perform multiple tasks to help their hard of hearing owner which makes them service dogs. Now they can still be called hearing dogs, but other than the tasks they perform and some slight differences in their training they are service dogs.
