Apply for a Dog
Our application for Hearing Dogs.
If you can answer yes to all of the below question, We would love to hear from you.
please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you at least 18 years of age?
Are you a resident of Illinois or Wisconsin?
Do you have a minimum of 65% hearing loss (unaided.)
Are you physically able to take full responsibility for the daily care of a dog?
Do you have the ability to pay $1,000 to $2,000 a year for dog care costs such as veterinary care and dog food?
Is your home currently free of dogs?
Are you able to participate in a 4-5 day placement of a dog, working in your home and in your community with a Dogs On the Go trainer for 8 hours each day?
Are other people in the home willing to participate in the placement and spend time with the trainer learning how to help make the dog’s placement successful?
If there are hearing people in the home (including children), are they willing to consistently avoid answering sounds such as the doorbell so that the dog can work the sound?
Average wait time for a Dogs On the Go Hearing Dog is 12-18 months after being accepted into the program. Does that time frame work for you?
