Why Did We Create PAWNIX?
Colored explosions drip across the night sky. Their reflections dance along water across the bay. The sound from the fireworks reverberates in our ears while our eyes drink in the night's wonder. Then, at ground level, a white streak enters and exits the field of vision in the blink of an eye. It takes us a second to realize, another dog has just ran away due to the loud 4th of July firework show. All of our family members start to yell, "EMMA" the dog's name. Everyone's hearts stop, and we all feel weak and helpless. Emma is now another statistic. A run-away. In a panic, we all set off in the direction that Emma ran. After what seemed like hours, we found our furbaby, Emma, down the street. Thankfully, she had been taken into a garage by a neighbor to ride out the rest of the firework show.
The statistics about dogs that run away during the 4th of July are high and very sad. There is a 30% increase of lost pets during the weeks surrounding the 4th of July. According to Lost Pet Statistics, 14% of the 63 million dog owning households in America will run away within a 5 year span. Dogs being scared by loud noises is one of the top four reasons dogs run away. With my invention of a noise-cancelling headset for dogs, we will reduce the number of dogs that run away due to all kinds of loud noises.
Like many dogs, Emma is scared of all kinds of loud noises. Alarms, Motorcycles, Thunderstorms, Fireworks, etc. The Journal Of American Veterinary Medical Association reported 30% of dogs suffer from some type of storm anxiety; and 86% of dogs with thunder phobia develop separation anxiety.
We tried calming oils and treats, doggie shirts, playing soothing music, nothing worked for Emma. One day, while we were traveling for our old corporate research and development job, an idea popped into our founders head. During the planes loading process, the stewardess on the airplane started slamming the overheard baggage compartments to get them to shut over large bags. This happens on most flights, and because it is a loud noise, Emma jumps a little every time it happens. Our founder was wearing her own Noise-Cancelling headphones, so she decided to try to hold the headset to Emma's ears. It was bulky and awkward, but it worked. Emma stopped being jumpy, and settled down and got comfortable for take off. Our founder let Emma laydown in them the rest of the flight. That was the first day of the development process of PAWNIX Noise-Cancelling headsets for dogs. Comfortable headphones for dogs to eliminate these triggers that create all of our drama.
How Do We Know That It Works?
First, We used audio testing technology to prove that the electronics were in fact canceling the frequencies that were found to be problematic. Then, only after we felt it was mathmatically sound, we put it on Emma in different loud situations and it worked. We could visibly see a difference in Emma's behavior. The highlight was taking her with us to the New Years Eve Concert with midnight firework celebrations (video on our website). Emma was not bothered by the fireworks being set off 1 block away. We had lots of people stop us and interact with Emma, and all were impressed at her calmness and her ability to still interact with them.
When Emma wears her PAWNIX headset, we feel better knowing and seeing that she is not hearing the storms or loud noises the same as she used to. She does not hide in the bathroom during thunderstorms anymore either. Our other company dogs also see Emma put on her headset and they come running to wear theirs. This allows the everyone to enjoy mother nature's beautiful thunderstorms together. We also do not feel guilty if we have to step out, because we know Emma is no longer reacting the same way to the loud noises, which brings us peace of mind.
PAWNIX Noise-Cancelling headset works for many other noises, not just thunderstorms and fireworks. It takes any loud noise and reduces the volume. When dogs wear PAWNIX, the decibels level of loud noises is reduced up to 30 decibels. That means that loud firework shows become the loudness level of a dyson vacuum, or a running dishwasher.
