Ford’s Noise-Cancelling Kennel Helps Pooches Feel Safe During Firewo
People might find the bright lights and intricate patterns of fireworks stunning, but our four-legged companions don’t share our enthusiasm. The loud noise fireworks produce terrifies the majority of cats and dogs.
Some statistics indicate that half of all pets are petrified by the ruckus fireworks make, to the degree they experience severe stress, try to hurt themselves, or run away from home. Motivated by their desire to employ advanced automotive technologies to help others, Ford offered a potential solution for pets with noise aversion: the Quiet Kennel.
The innovative doghouse is equipped with noise cancellation technology available in Ford cars since 2015. Active Noise Control technology functions similarly to noise-canceling headphones, which is precisely what scared pooches need during 4th of July or New Year’s festivities. The sleek design of the house is not only pretty to look at but features some brilliant solutions, such as walls insulated with noise-cancellation panels and fitted with anti-vibration block risers.
Combined with the Active Noise Control, this makes the Quiet Kennel a safe haven, even when fireworks, firecrackers, and loud music are blasting outside of it. The automatic doors that also help ensure that the interior of the kennel is noise-free are completely transparent, so your pooch won’t feel trapped when inside.
