The City of Orange Hearing Loss Association of America chapter will welcome a four-legged guest at its Saturday, February 2, 2019 morning meeting. Jennifer Dentino, an instructor at two training facilities (Jump Start and Courteous Canines) will share her wealth of experience in canine training, including training deaf dogs – her deaf dog Kaos will be with her. Dentino currently holds credentials as a certified Animal Behavior College dog trainer.

The two-hour meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. at Marie Callendar’s Restaurant (1821 N. Grand Avenue in Santa Ana). There is no charge to attend, but an optional $3 donation is encouraged to help cover costs (room rental and real-time captioning). Following the informative meeting and to allow socializing with those who have hearing loss issues, members are invited to remain at the restaurant for a no-host lunch.

“I enjoy helping pet owners find the fun in training and watching the bond between the pet owner and the dog grow,” said Dentino who competes with her three dogs in a variety of dog sports including agility and rally obedience.

In addition to holding her ASCA Novice Rally Obedience title and several ASCA Agility titles her deaf dog Kaos is a Pet Prescription Team Therapy Dog who earned a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) title and has completed 100 + therapy dog visits since being certified in 2015. Her other dog Liberty is also a therapy dog.
