I'm going to get a bc puppy soon and I was wondering when I go an visit a breeder how can I check to see if a puppy is deaf or not??
Wow, this just happened to my sister, she purchased a deaf dog, not knowing it was deaf. I went with her to pick it up, and 5 minutes into the car ride, I could tell she was deaf. I had a feeling that she was when I saw her, because her head is white and her eyes are blue. It is common in cats and dogs with white faces and blue eyes to be deaf. The best way to test is to go into a quiet room, and without him seeing you, whistle. If you get no reaction, try it a few times. Also, in a noisy room, his ears should work like sattelite dishes, and turn towards the sounds. If you notice his ears are not moving around towards the sounds, its possible the dog is deaf. Good luck!
Well, since you'll be taking him to the Vet for a Health Check probably within the first week of getting him...plus he'll need his shot series...the Vet can check his hearing...Generally, unless you choose a Merle color, or a dog that is all white, chances are it's hearing will be no problem.
Born deal is a genetic problem...and if you've chosen a good breeder there will be a guarentee on the pup...hearing would be part of that.
try dropping something heavy behind something heavy behind him and see if he reacts or call him from a distance and see if he comes to you
if another dog barks, usually your dog will bark back,,if you call it, it should come to you,...
I am not sure you can. Maybe try and clap or something by there ears?.
