    Defaultservices for deaf or with hearing problem

    Can the labs do any services or help people with hearing problems or even deaf people? Can they be trained to do something to help those people?

    Yes, you can google service dogs and see plenty of info about them. There is a high degree of training to get a dog to that level.

    Yes. I have a friend who is deaf and had 2 Lab service dogs. Like guide dogs they are specially trained. Some are also trained to help with epilepsy.

    The reason I'm asking is because about two weeks ago I noticed something wrong with my ear. So I visited a doctor and after some checks he told me that I have 60% loss on high frequencies so I'm taking some pills. Another person I know with the same problem got worst. So I'm preparing for the worst. If there is something I can teach Cassie for this situation it's better to start soon. But I'd rather be ok with the pills I'm taking. We'll see..

    The good thing is that I'm learning sign language for two years now ..haha

    I am sorry your hearing is going. Can hearing aids help or is that a silly question.

    I don't see why you can't teach Cassie things.

    Little hijack of sorts.
    I once saw a dog get the owner the phone so of course had to try that with Kass. Tried and tried for weeks. She wouldn't have a bar of it. About a month later friends were visiting and Kass wanted some afternoon tea. Nope. She went though all her tricks and everyone said "Oh isn't she cute." or " aw..can we just give a little food." No no begging. She bought my shoes, my bag,their bags until there was a pile of stuff by the table. She did everything she could think of with them all saying "oh please let give her something." and laughing at her.
    Then you could see her brain working. She went away and came back and put the phone on my knee. She got a cake. lol.

    The other person I know tried hearing aids with no success. It's not for sure that I will loose my hearing.. But I wanna be on the safe side just in case.

    I will start with the phone and see how she does.

    you need to go to an audiologist who can determine the type of hearing loss and see if hearing aids can help.

    I've been to an audiologist. I will also go to another one to get a second opinion.

    so, does the audiologist think a hearing aid(s) will help?
