I am about to adopt my very first deaf dog and I am working to prepare my house for the new family member.
I've read Living With Deaf Dogs by Susan C. Becker, The Complete Guide to Owning a Deaf Dog: A Practical Guide to Adapting, Training, and Thriving As a Deafie Owner by Amanda Brahlek, and Deaf Dog: A Guide for Enriching Your Deaf Dog's Life by Christi Bender.
I know that I should acquire some nightlights since most of those resources recommend them. (The advice given is that, since your deaf dog cannot hear and relies more on their sight, it's important to not leave them in total darkness.) Additionally, I know that bright, flashing lights are like yelling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (you see them used in place of audio alarms in doorbells and the like.)
With that in mind, is it safe to pick up a few "aesthetic" lights that softly cycle or should I opt for more simple white lights with no fancy effects?
