Start on Your Hearing Dog Journey

Apply for a Hearing Dog

Due to our extensive waitlist, IHDI is not accepting new applications.

Hearing Dog Applicants

Due to our extensive waitlist, IHDI is not accepting new applications to ensure our team can focus on serving those currently waiting for a life-changing hearing dog. As we aren't currently accepting new applications, please check out other service dog programs and trainers who may be able to assist you. Visit Assistance Dogs International for a listing of programs.

If you would like to be notified when we re-open applications, you may fill out the form below. Please first ensure that our requirements are a good fit for you and that you meet IHDI's Applicant Criteria and Expectations.

Successor Dog Applicants

Clients who have an IHDI hearing dog nearing retirement or have an IHDI hearing dog that has passed away within the last year are able to re-apply for a hearing dog. If you are a client in either of these positions, please get in touch with Heather McLaughlin, Director of People and Community.
