Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear of your turmoil.
Please contact you local vet and ask for his/her advice on the matter. Your vet may suggest that your JRT has a clinical examination to determine the possible cause of his deafness and/or other conditions such as Cognitive Dysfunction.
If nothing is determined at clinical the vet may suggest that you consider seeking the advice of a qualified animal behaviorist. The animal behaviorist may be able to determine if there is a behavior problem (i.e. separation anxiety) and hopefully initiate a retraining program.
