Is your pet upset by loud noises like fireworks or thunderstorms? There will soon be a new high-tech option to consider in addition to tranquilizers and calming coats…
The Ford Motor Company has taken its noise-cancelling technology to the dogs! Ford has developed a prototype kennel that is designed to provide your pet with a quiet haven when things get a little too loud.
According to an article in The Verge, the kennel uses a combination of noise-cancelling technology, cork, and an automatic door.
In cars, noise-cancelling technology works by picking up sounds like engine noise, and then uses speakers to play sounds in the opposite frequency to cancel them out.
The article notes that because dogs have much more sensitive hearing than humans, developing an effective kennel is a challenge.
While the prototype is not available for sale yet, you can watch a video about the kennel now!
