While many folks own dogs as a means to keep themselves safe and stress-free, canines have their own set of insecurities and stresses that can put them on edge and make their lives harder — like the sound of fireworks on the 4th of July (the number one holiday in which animals go missing). As it turns out, Ford finally has a solution to help keep your pup safe from loud noises with their Quiet Kennel.
According to the brand, up to 50% of dogs exhibit fear when faced with loud unnatural sounds. This structure, however, utilizes the brand’s Active Noise Control Technology — found in their vehicles — to dampen these sounds to a level that won’t disturb the animals’ ultrasonic hearing. And it’s not just the dual speakers on the interior that do the trick, as it also boasts sound-reducing insulation and an automatic door to improve the noise-cancelling even further. They’ve even gone so far as to give the doghouse a ventilation system, so your pooch will feel like they’re in the lap of luxury, even when all hell has broken loose outside. It’s hard to say whether this design will be put into mass production, but we know plenty of dog owners (ourselves included) that would jump at the chance to get one.
