Protecting Dogs’ Ears, Calming Dogs’ Fears
AK Bark is proud to carry Crittear in Anchorage, Alaska. My business is making custom, silicone hearing protection for humans. This includes people who work in loud industries, heavy equipment, shoot sports, hunters, and even children with autism. So I built on this knowledge! I had to do something about what I saw happening to dog’s hearing – I decided that I would be the advocate that dogs need. And, my journey began. I conducted intense research, interviewed pet owners about how they helped their dogs in loud and scary situations. I educated myself about dogs and their hearing. And I collaborated with hearing professionals. My research and education led me to develop the first solution of its kind. Inspired by a type of hearing protection that I personally use and make. And thus, CrittEar® was born! CrittEar® is in-ear hearing protection for dogs. It has a unique and patented shape specifically created for a dogs inner ear. And it comes in sizes that will fit dogs from Chihuahuas to Great Danes! In a nutshell, CrittEar® is a patented dog ear plug that helps protect dog’s hearing and also calms their nerves. Currently, CrittEar® is made solely for dogs, but I am exploring my product’s potential for additional applications for other critters.
