Living with a deaf dog or cat

Living with and training a deaf dog or cat can be a greater challenge than is the case with their hearing brethren. The experience is easier with animals that lose hearing after normal postnatal auditory development has occurred than it is with animals with congenital deafness. Several resources have been published for owners of deaf pets that provide advice in dealing with the issues that these animals raise (Becker, 1997; Eaton, 2005; Senechal, 2009). People choosing to adopt a pet that is deaf will benefit from an understanding of the behaviors that might be anticipated and with guidance in the life course that their pet will follow.
