At long last, your best friend can now enjoy full-spectrum noise reduction with comfortable and light-weight Mutt Muffs®.
The benefits are obvious: reducing harmful noise in nearly all environments
*Note: Dogs should always be supervised while wearing Mutt Muffs®. Please be extra careful outdoors, or in any situation where the inability to hear all sounds might present a safety risk.
The inner foam that we use is the exact same ester resin foam that is used in many high end commercial head sets designed for humans. Based on the materials used, the estimated decibel reduction is between 25 and 28, assuming proper fit and a good seal against your pup's head. That's 25-28 dB reduction in the human hearing range of 20,000 cycles per second, which is the only range that we have data for. Our canine friends can hear much higher frequencies (in the range of 43,000 cycles per second). As the frequency goes up, so does the effectiveness of Mutt Muffs, simply because the higher the frequency is, the more easily it is absorbed. Therefore, Mutt Muffs are especially effective at protecting against the high frequency wind whistles and shrieks we humans cannot even hear.
There is another factor that comes into play as well. The dog's own ear flaps are down and covering the ear canal, providing yet another layer of protection, better even than placing your hands over your own ears.
How come my dog can still hear me while wearing the muffs?
Because Mutt Muffs are not 'noise eliminating'. They provide 'passive decibel reduction', which means they reduce dangerous noise levels to acceptable noise levels. Don't believe it? Run to Home Depot and try on a set of ear muffs for use around loud power tools. You will still be able to hear the clerk tell you to stop opening packages, or he will have to call the manager. Granted, not as loudly as without them, but you will still be able to hear and understand.
Do They Work for Fireworks?
Even though that was not the original intent, they may work to reduce your dog's fear of fireworks. Many dogs fear fireworks sounds because they don't understand what it is. Mutt Muffs are NOT noise canceling. Your dog will still hear the sounds, but at a reduced level. So, it's possible your dog will still fear the sound regardless of how loud it is.
