Had this very discussion with my vet. Yes, shooting over bird dogs injures their hearing. I use my labs and chessie very hard for waterfowl and upland game. I noticed a loss in hearing after three or four seasons. Unfortunately, when you use dogs as hard as I do, they are about worn out by the age of 7 or 8. At least they lead a happy and productive life...
