| Recently Bella has learned by herself how to alert me to people calling me when I can't hear (I didn't teach this, she just decided to do it herself. I see no harm in it, so I just let her but don't encourage it)
I don't have hearing problems, but when in my room I always have a VERY loud air purifier on (I have guinea pigs which eat hay so I need an air purifier for all the dust) and I'm normally wearing large headphones and listening to something. Therefore I can basically hear nothing, so when someone is calling me they basically have to scream before I'm able to hear them.
But recently Bella has learned to alert me to when someone is calling me. Whenever she hears my name, she will turn towards the source of the call, bark once, then turn, run up to me and bark once, then repeat until I get up, respond to the person, or tell her to stop. Such a smart puppy People in the house now don't call my name when I'm upstairs, they call Bella and tell her to call me. Though she only does this when we both are in my room, she doesn't do it anywhere else of course, or I would have trained her to stop.
