Deaf Dog Education Action Fund


DDEAF Calendar

I would like, to begin with, to say that though parents, husbands, children, lovers and friends are all very well, they are not dogs.
 - Elizabeth Von Arnim

Boxer drawingThis calendar is a listing of events, dedications and celebrations for all of us to enjoy with our dogs. While most of the events are not specific to deaf dogs, we have included them because a deaf dog could be part of them as easily as any other dog. The events that are primarily for deaf dogs have been highlighted in green to make them easier to find.

If you know of anything we have missed, or if you are setting up a booth at a local event to help educate the public about deaf dogs, see our Contact page so that we know to add it. And if you are ready to plan your own deaf dog picnic or other "get together," see our Picnic page for a few tips and ideas on organizing it. (It's not that hard and it really is a whole lot of fun! See some past picnics by using the links on our Recommended Websites page.)
