About Deaf Dogs  Dogs that cannot hear are quite often written off as too difficult to train, unable to recall or be let off lead and generally unable to live a ‘normal’ life. But a deaf dog only has one of the five senses missing and can accommodate for this loss much better than you might imagine. With their heightened sense of smell and eager eyes, a deaf dog can understand, interact and learn just as well as their hearing companions.

In medicine, the inability to smell is anosmia. Pregnant women often experience hyperosmia – a heightened sense of smell (this was why, conveniently, I could not load or empty the dishwasher for 9 months). People with central nervous system disorders can have parosmia, an altered sense of smell, and smell phantom odors, such as fuel or burnt bacon (ick).

Anxiety Linked to Heightened Sense of Smell. During a state of anxiety, there is stronger communication between the sensory and emotional areas of the brain in response to negative odors. This increased connectivity may be responsible for the heightened arousal to threats. This enhanced sensory-emotional connection could be a critical function, designed to arouse physiological alertness to potential threats.
