Hearing Dogs


The Iowa Act: 216C.10 - Use of Hearing Dog

A deaf or hard-of-hearing person has the right to be accompanied by a hearing dog, under control and especially trained at a recognized training facility to assist the deaf or hard-of-hearing by responding to sound, in any place listed in sections 216C.3 and 216C.4 without being required to make additional payment for the hearing dog.  A landlord shall waive lease restrictions on the keeping of dogs for a deaf or hard-of-hearing person with a hearing dog.  The deaf or hard-of-hearing person is liable for damage done to any premise or facility by a hearing dog. A person who denies or interferes with the right of a deaf or hard-of-hearing person under this section is, upon conviction, guilty of a simple misdemeanor.
