Noise Cancelling Kennel by Ford

FORD TECHNOLOGY IN DEVELOPMENT TO PROTECT YOUR POOCH

It can come as no surprise when I say that almost 50% of all domestic animals, especially dogs, are petrified of loud noises, particularly fireworks. Dog specialist Graeme Hall has been given the pseudonym ‘The Dogfather’ and he highlights that dogs can hear sounds four times further away and sounds too much higher frequencies than the human ear so just because you can’t hear the pyrotechnics, your dog may still be able to.

The technicians at Ford have created microphones inside a specially designed ‘noise cancelling kennel’ which detects firework sounds and changes the frequency inside the kennel to an opposite tone/sound and it also protects the dog against loud bangs or vibrations caused by fireworks cancelling them out.

The original noise cancelling tech is used in the high range vehicles in the Ford range already so the transfer and development of this into something which can genuinely reduce the suffering of pets, can only be a good thing.

If you want more information on how to keep your pet safe and secure around fireworks until this technology becomes available, please check out our blog for full details.

Ford and Fireworks. A Perfect Combo.

Thunderbird_Fireworks

There is great news for the folk of Detroit as Ford Motor Company announces that they have agreed to a multi-million dollar sponsorship deal to support the fabulous annual fireworks display for the coming 3 years.

This year marks the 55th year of this event on 24th June 2013 when the City and the surrounding districts are treated to a full day of entertainment including:

• Archery
• Geocaching
• Treasure hunting called geocaching using GPS
• Sand Sculptures
• Tall ships
• Carnival and fairground rides and attractions
• More than 75 street performers including headliners like Kansas (carry on my wayward son) The Whispers (and the beat goes on – my absolute track of all time) Boys II Men (I’ll make love to you) and the brilliant Thornetta Davis who worked alongside such greats as Gladys Knight and Etta James

Admission to the event is just $3.00 and the fireworks are at a very specific 10:06pm and will be handled by several thousand technicians who will spend several days setting up this majestic display.

If you live in the area or get the chance to visit, let us have some photo’s or video footage and we will include them on our website.
