Who knew, but how smart?! Mutt Muffs offer hearing protection for our pups. They were created by a Cessna pilot for her dog who accompanies her on flights. She realized the noise of the cockpit must be affecting her dog’s sensitive hearing and that he needed hearing protection just as much as humans. Dogs wearing Mutt Muffs are more alert and happy on flights, where before they “slept” and were probably trying to tune out all the noise.
Mutt Muffs have the same high density foam used in pilot’s headsets and they’re designed to be shake-proof, so your dog won’t shake them off. The site says dogs get used to them pretty quickly and they do look like they are designed to fit really well. I don’t know that I’d use them on a dog in the baggage compartment of a commercial flight since they’d be unsupervised. But, I could see them helping with fireworks or ongoing noise like construction, in addition to flights in private planes or in the cabin of commercial flights.
