Headlines Ford Creates Noise-Cancelling Doghouse to Help with Fireworks Fear It’s for dogs who hate the Fourth of July and other boisterous holidays. Published 5 years ago on December 20, 2018 By PETS+ Staff Share Tweet Ford Motor Co. has applied the noise-cancelling technology it uses in some of its vehicles, such as the Fusion sedan and Edge crossover, to the world of doghouses, Autoblog reports. The kennel is designed to be a refuge for canines who are freaked out by fireworks. Among its features are “sound deadening panels sandwiched between the layers” and “active noise-canceling speakers to dull the booms of fireworks,” according to Autoblog. Engadget notes that the doghouse is equipped with “cork panels, anti-vibration risers and even soundproofed ventilation.” The kennel is only a prototype for now, not an actual product.
