Douglas Goes On Vacation With Me

IMG_20140422_183318-MOTION

Good afternoon everyone. My summer has been going great. Just recently I took my hearing dog Douglas to Ohio with me. We went out to eat at some restaurants and he came with us. While he was there, he was quiet and behaved pretty good. He never barked in the restaurants. Now he responds automatically to the doorbell, phone, alarm clock and smoke alarm. When I’m not wearing my hearing aids I can’t hear a thing. So it is very helpful that he is here to notify me of those sounds.

A while ago I received a wonderful hearing dog named Douglas from IHDI .  You can find this agency on facebook at:

https://www.facebook.com/internationalhearingdog.  As I was training him I signed some commands to him such as sit.

He has been good at remembering some of the words I signed to him.  He is a very intelligent dog.  You can read more about this on bubblews by clicking on the first link above.

About My Hearing Dog

As you know over two weeks ago I received a hearing dog. I found him in the International Hearing Dog Inc. Robert Cooley the trainer flew Douglas down from Colorado for me. Then he stayed in town for a few days teaching me how to train the dog.  Since I was born deaf, it would help me to have a dog to notify me of sounds I can’t hear.  He also goes to work with me every single day.  This dog is allowed with me in all public places.  A few times I have been stopped by security guards asking what is the dog doing in the store. So I had to inform them it was a hearing dog and that it’s perfectly legal to have it in the store.  Ever since Douglas has come into my life, it has changed for the better.
