    Does anyone have any experience with deaf dogs? We have recently rescued a 12-15 yr old staffy called Duckie. Shes had it rough as we are working on getting her back to good health. She has about 10% hearing (sometimes she can hear a very loud clap). She is excellent on the lead and off lead...

    I have a 2 yr old white toy poodle. He is a rescue and I am told he was born deaf. I have had him a year and a half and he has mixed very well with our other animals (4 dogs, 6 cats, 2 goats and a horse). We have had almost no adjustment problems. Recently he has begun to bark and growl at my...

    My dog Tash suddenly went blind and deaf four weeks ago. He's 18 years old, a poodle mutt, in good health. He's had cataracts for many years, but was able to move everywhere, run and play with my other dog, and never bump into things. A month ago I left him inside the car for two hours, when I...

    My 5 year old white boxer is a piece of work. I got her when she was 2 years old and she has been a bundle of anxiety problems. She was obviously abused and is easily startled. She tends to favor men over women meaning she is often more relaxed with my boyfriend than with me. I have to crate her...

    We have a three year old beagle who is either hard of hearing or deaf. He can "hear" low noises like when a motorcycle drives by the house, but we are not sure if that is from the vibration or not. We adopted him from a local shelter and love him to pieces. Of course like most beagles he is...

    Balanced dogs experience the world through their nose, eyes, then ears. But as humans, we often rely on sound while training our dogs. So what if your dog is deaf? Dogs experience the world through their nose first, then eyes, then ears. We are accustomed as humans to relate through sound...
