Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

A UK charity which trains dogs for use by the deaf. Properly trained hearing dogs alert the deaf to normal sounds in their environment (e.g., phones, doorbells, babies crying), as well as to danger sounds (e.g., sirens, smoke alarms). Hearing dogs are identified by their burgundy vest, which alert the public that the owner is hearing impaired.
