This type of training should be easy for anyone with a knowledge of how to train a dog. You will not need to find someone who only works with Hearing Dogs.

What type of training does your dog already have? For noise alerts the use of a clicker would be especially easy to use in the training. You would begin with one sound and train and proof it first before going on to a second. With some more knowledge of the background of your dog such as age and training level it will be easier to offer suggestions. Also, helpful would be if you let us know your own level of experience with a dog. Have you ever done any type of training before? Do you know how to use a clicker?

To find a trainer in your area for any needed help you can ask your vet, groomer, or local dog club for recommendations.
