Fireworks usually accompany events such as New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July. Dogs do not like loud sounds, particularly fireworks. During these events, dog owners play loud music while others medicate their dogs to calm them.
Ford has launched what is being described as the first in a sequence of innovations. The newly launched noise reduction dog kennel courtesy of Ford incorporates technology similar to what the company has deployed in its European market.
The kennel protects dogs from loud sounds, and therefore dogs can run there when scared by the noise. Additionally, the kennels have microphones around the dog bed in the doghouse.
Ford Europe representative Lyn West said, “We wanted a way in which the technologies used in our vehicles can help us in other situations. Is it possible for dogs to enjoy the end of year festivities through the use of our system?”
