    This is what it says on the Hearing Dogs website 

    Regardless of your degree of hearing loss, personal requirements or circumstances, you can get in touch with our application team to talk through your options.

    We use minicom and text supported phones if you feel comfortable using them. Please call us today on 01844 348111 during our opening hours of 9am-5pm and we can have a chat about your query and needs. Or email on [email protected]

    So you can ask them for advice?

    I know there is a lack of support dogs in many areas due to the time and expense of training them.
