Are deaf dogs and blind dogs just like other dogs? - DogTime

The scientists say, “The increased chewing, excessive barking, and increased self- licking reported in the HVI dogs may be due to differences in sensory input compared to non-HVI dogs. Indeed, all the excesses in behavior appear to be self-stimulatory in nature.” Because they asked owners about any other health issues, they do not think health is the cause of this difference. Instead, they think the dogs are making up for the lack of input from their ears or eyes with behaviors that engage their other senses.

This suggests owners of dogs with hearing or vision problems should make an explicit effort to make sure their dog has enough sensory input. The researchers suggest enrichment with toys, including vibrating toys, Kongs , and chew toys, as well as training sessions to engage the dog’s brain. Many such dogs can also attend agility or obedience classes.

The survey was completed by the owners of 461 dogs. The hearing-impaired and vision-impaired dogs (HVI) were considered as one group since there were no differences between them. Ninety-eight dogs were deaf or had a hearing impairment, 32 dogs were blind or partially-sighted, and 53 dogs were both deaf and blind (183 dogs in total). The remainder was a comparison group of dogs without such impairments.

Blind and deaf dogs are excluded from many rally and obedience programs (with notable exceptions). The authors say, “Given that no evidence was found for increased aggression , it seems that HVI dogs could successfully participate in these additional socialization opportunities. Opening up these opportunities would increase the available activities for HVI dogs. Increased opportunities for training and competition increase the general health and well-being of all dogs.”
