The way I figured out my Sheltie was mostly deaf was to clap and bang pans when he was asleep. You have to be far enough away to avoid vibrations awakening him. I've used this technique to discover how loud a noise must be for him to hear it.

There is the BAER test available as well. This is a medical test that will determine the amount, if any, of hearing your dog has - as I understand it. However, it is only done in specalized vet clinics. I live in Oklahoma, and the nearest BAER testing sites are in Dallas or Denver. Too far to drive. If you want to pay for the test and have one near you, that may be something you'd like to look into.
