Should I Practice Shoot Around my Hunting Dogs?

When practice shooting behind my house I have the option of penning my dogs up relatively far from the shooting and noise. In order to protect their hearing would this be a good idea? They are also very good watch dogs around the property at night and I wonder if their constant presence around my target practicing might damage their ears to the point that they cannot hear delicate sounds around the property. These are Labrador Retrievers and I would hate to diminish their capabilities in any way. In other words....does unprotected hearing while shooting affect the dogs ears like it does to humans?
