There are more deaf dogs than you might imagine, enjoying life just as hearing dogs do. A lot of puppies that are born deaf are euthanized, but a deaf dog isn’t significantly disabled; he still has his fine nose and his eyes, which are far more important faculties to a dog. When a deaf dog misbehaves, it’s usually not because he is aggressive or disobedient; generally, it’s because his owner is unaware of the best way in which to communicate with and handle his dog. This invaluable book will sympathetically help owners of deaf and hard-of-hearing dogs not just to accept their loyal companions for what they are, but also explain how, with love and careful thought, they and their dog can get the maximum out of life, having fun and establishing an even closer bond as they help each other find new or adapted ways to live together. Life with a deaf dog • Communication with deaf dogs • Case histories from owners • How to train a deaf dog • Interviews with vets • Interviews with breeders • Giving confidence to owners of deaf dogs • Disproving prejudices against deaf dogs

One-year-old Iris is deaf. Her parents, Ben and Maggie, are devastated. So are their close friends Isobel and Eric. Isobel knows that her decision, taken years ago, not to have her own children vaccinated against measles is to blame for Iris's deafness. And Ben knows this too. To make matters worse, Isobel is the woman he fell in love with in his twenties - the woman who married his best friend. As he and Maggie start legal proceedings, Isobel's world begins to unravel. Lizzie Enfield's compelling new novel explores the hearts and minds of ordinary people as they struggle to come to terms with the choices they've made. Acutely observed and utterly gripping, it explores love and loss, guilt and recovery, with humour, honesty and page-turning prose.

The Complete Guide to Owning a Deaf Dog

The Complete Guide to Owning a Deaf Dog

Deaf dogs live fulfilling lives. Most do not realize that they are any different than other dogs. Deaf dogs form strong bonds with their owners and their pet siblings. Deafies don't feel self-pity or disabled.

Written by experienced deafie owner Amanda Brahlek and using contributions from dozens of deaf dog owners, this truly is a “Must Read” for anyone opening their home to a deaf dog. Inside these pages you’ll find answers to the most important questions a new deaf dog owner is faced with: What accommodations do you need to make for your deafie? How to prepare your home for a deaf dog Training, communication, and hand signals How do you safely socialize a deaf dog with other dogs? How can you promote comfort and security with your deafie? Amanda's story: Before I adopted my deaf Catahoula, I searched and searched for information on what to expect and how to care for him. I needed a What to Expect When You’re Expect guide but for deaf dogs. Unfortunately, each source I read fell short. Most sources offered the same generic, inadequate information and advice. None prepared me for what owning a deaf dog was really like. I knew I could write a better guide, so I did. And here it is! This is the guide I wish I had before adopting my deaf dog, when I brought him home, and for the months and years that followed. Find out what it’s truly like to own a deaf dog: from accommodations to cuddles. This book will provide you with the information you need to understand and best care for a deaf dog. My goal is to help you feel confident in your decision when considering if a deaf dog is the right choice for you, and, if it is, to assist you in training your deaf dog. Deaf dogs are lovable goofballs with a lot of love to share, but they require owners that are prepared to handle all aspects of their personalities and needs. If you’re feeling overwhelmed after adopting a deafie or uncertain whether or not to adopt a deaf dog, this book is for you.
