Hearing Dogs


Hearing Dogs

Hearing Dogs NZ is an independent charitable trust that assesses, selects, trains and places specially trained Hearing Dogs to internationally recognised standards with deaf and severely hearing impaired New Zealanders.

Just like guide dogs, these specially trained Hearing Dogs provide valuable services, helping to increase independence, companionship and confidence for their owners.

Dilworth Hearing is proud to be lending a helping paw to support Hearing Dogs and the life changing work that they do.

For more information on this fantastic charity please visit their website www.hearingdogs.org.nz

How can I donate?

Hearing Dogs receive no government funding and make no charge to the person receiving the dog, but seek support from individuals, groups and organisations to help train and place these wonderful, portable ‘hearing aids’!

There are a variety of methods for donating to this worthy cause.  Click here to visit their website for more information.

How can I apply for a Hearing Dog?

There are some prerequisites in order to be able to welcome the assistance of a Hearing Dog into your life, the main one being that you are profoundly deaf, or have moderate to severe hearing loss. (This includes individuals with a cochlear implant.)
