Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity and centre of excellence in training hearing dogs to alert deaf people to everyday household sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings.
Hearing Dogs was launched at the world famous Crufts dog show in 1982.
Since then 1,600 life-changing partnerships between deaf people and hearing dogs in the UK have been created. There are currently over 750 working partnerships in the country.
The West End Show runs a Companion Dog Show by kind permission of The Kennel Club every year for pedigree and novelty classes. As part of our fundraising to organise the Show we are able to make donations to associated and local charities and good causes and, each year, we are delighted to support Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. The Show Committee is honoured to be asked to become a puppy sponsor which means we shall be following the progress of Rose, the black Cocker Spaniel through her training until she begins her role as a companion to a deaf person.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People will be represented at the Show, so we hope you will show them your support.
