    (he wore earphones connected to a computer - Snoopy sitting on top of his kennel pretending to be the Red Baron came to mind!)


    Good point about some dogs being deaf in one ear only.

    Also Margaret, those are also great points. Leo has always had that difficulty picking out directional sound and I trained him to recall to a shout and a waving motion of the arms or else he will run off after other people -- though he has no problem hearing at short range.

    Hi Brian. Having now read the other answers, and your question again, I will apologize for trying to be funny. I misunderstood it. I am sorry. It was out of place, and I hope that Daisy turns out to be fine.

    Oh I think having a laugh is OK too. I think some of us were just offering the more serious side for consideration but there are definitely dogs who are selective in hearing commands when a treat is in the hand and who are oblivious when there's no reward in sight.

    On a lighter note, how can I check if my husband is deaf, stubborn or just a bad recall ?? He seems to have the same symptons as Daisy

    Have him visit a licensed audiologist! (Sorry, shameful plug for my profession) We might be able to help with the hearing loss. Can't do a darn thing about the stubbornness or bad recall. A clicker might work for that.
