Dogs are very much welcome at Thame Food Festival and once again, we’ve joined up with the amazing Hearing Dogs for Deaf People to bring you this brilliant, fun and entertaining feature.
Bring your lovely dog along on the day and enter them into lots of fun categories. Details are being put together now, so keep checking back with us over the next few months.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a national charity which trains hearing dogs to alert deaf people to important sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and in public buildings that they would otherwise miss.
They train hearing dogs to alert deaf children and adults to important sounds and danger signals such as the alarm clock, door bell, telephone, a baby’s cry and the smoke alarm.
Hearing dogs are easily recognisable by their distinctive burgundy jacket and lead slips, which help to signal the recipients otherwise invisible disability, bringing increased peace of mind for the deaf person. Deafness can be an incredibly isolating and lonely disability, and a hearing dog provides life-changing independence, increased confidence, companionship and a feeling of security.
Come and see them demonstrate over the weekend in the Family Fun Dog show arena an see just how clever they are.
Hearing Dogs will be joined by Aston Hearing – who’ll be there promoting good health for human ears!
All proceeds from this area go to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
