Are you playing Russian roulette with your dog?

You probably never thought you may be gambling with you or your dog's safety when you just went for your short walk. You probably always approached curbside metal or electrical fixtures without the slightest thought, and certainly not, trepidation. But did you know that these unremarkable fixtures have the potential to maim or even kill your pet? Any outdoor metal may leak voltage if it or a street's underlying cables or wires are ruptured. Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize a dog, walker, or both. You may risk seeing the truly heart-wrenching and gruesome spectacle of your poor pooch electrocuted by his own urine. Or you may observe your beloved dog suddenly paralyzed, rendered brain damaged, go into cardiac arrythmia, succumb to edema, or left so traumatized he or she may no longer trust you. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. When you exercise your pooch,male or female, please exercise greater caution to shield yourself and your pooch from this invisible danger. Become street smart and learn how to EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Make free-standing non-conductive contact whenever possible - wood, plastic, cardboard - and intuit your dog's cues. To learn more please see StreetZaps and flag tampered equipment and known hot spots on the Report Form for the public good. A safer walk is always within reach if you open your eyes, mind, and heart to it. Blair Sorrel, Founder,
