Welcome to general discussion!

Did your Britt make you laugh today? Did he do something so smart, you are blown away? Those puppy teeth causing you to tear up, and you need an outlet? Or do you want to post a picture of his or her latest point? This is the place for it!

Do we have any Deaf ABR dogs?

Post by LauraV »

Hi all,
I am looking for a deaf Brittany. I have been in contact with a photographer who is putting together a book about deaf dogs (specifically rescued dogs). If you would like to participate (and get ABR into this book) please let me know.
You can email me privately at LVrabel07@gmail.com
Thanks!
Laura

:lol: :lol: Guess we all know that being deaf is not necessarily an affliction with a Brittany :P

Does a Brittany that has lost 80-85% of his hearing due to age count? Just turned 14yrs this week. Which this weekend I find does have its advantages with a hotel half full of dogs, Ty doesn't hear the occasional "Ruff" in the halway and makes for a nice restful evening.

Yes, it has its advantages but disadvantages too ! My deaf 13 y/o dog doesn't hear commands which makes it tricky. Especially when she's on a trail and a mountain biker is coming. I can't call her to get out of the way :cry: :cry: She knows hand signals but if I can't get her attention they don't do much good...poor thing.

Janet, have you tried a vibrating e-collar for her? My husband uses one for Scout when he hunts.

Good suggestion, Nancy. I haven't thought of trying that. I'll certainly ponder it. Not sure what the old girl would think the first time that vibrates but since it's JUST a vibrate, I'm sure she'll look around !!! Thanks.
