Pawsible Angels hearing dogs are specially bred dogs who alert partners to key sounds by making physical contact such as nudging the leg or arm. Among the many sounds hearing dogs are trained to recognize and respond to are the sound of a doorbell, alarm clock, someone calling a name or a smoke alarm.
Partnering with a Pawsible Angel hearing dog can increase feelings of security and self-confidence by heightening awareness of environmental sounds.
