How Our Dogs Help

Bobby could sense and indicate that his owner was going to have epileptic seizures 20 minutes before they occurred.

How our dogs help

Lions hearing dogs have transformed the lives of hundreds of Australians. Hearing dogs alert their owners to sounds in the home by touching the owner with a paw—things like knocks on the door, a baby crying or the phone ringing. Most importantly, hearing dogs alert their owners to life-saving sounds like smoke alarms.

Our dogs not only offer safety, security and independence for the hearing impaired at home, they also give many the confidence to participate more fully in their community.

Hearing dogs are not just working dogs; they offer years of faithful and friendly companionship. They are very special indeed.
