Ford Creates Noise-Cancelling Doghouse to Help with Fireworks Fear

It’s for dogs who hate the Fourth of July and other boisterous holidays.




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.


“We wondered how the technologies we use in our cars could help people in other situations,” said Lyn West, brand content manager, marketing communications, Ford of Europe.

“Making sure dogs and their owners could enjoy a stress-free New Year’s Eve seemed like the perfect application for our Active Noise Control system, and we have a few more ideas in progress as to how our everyday lives might benefit from a little Ford know-how.”

Ford stated that the doghouse is “the first in a series of initiatives – called Interventions – that applies automotive know-how to help solve everyday problems.”
