Animal Law Forum - April 2 in Orlando at Barry Law School

Sorry for the another long posting hiatus, but I wanted to mention that the Barry Law School will be holding a animal law forum this Saturday in Orlando.  There are a number of great speakers and topics, including Adam Karp, who is a nationally recognized name in the area of animal law. Hope to see you there!

Greetings! Please see the international dog and horse shockings on StreetZaps,
please disseminate this vital public service to preclude
more injuries or fatalities. Many thanks for all your commendable work
and stay safe!

Best,

Blair

Just so you know, I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public
Affairs Units and contribute to Wet Nose Guide, Petfinder, and New
York Dog Chat. The National Electric Code showcases the site.

HOW TO SLAY AN INVISIBLE DANGER.

Blair Sorrel, Founder

Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize
an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly
observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet
instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise
your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor
electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable
dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and
like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed,
self-protect.

Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND
AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward
generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie.,
plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s
resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try
to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands
when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may
memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in
doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external
conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness.
And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually
put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re
leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is
yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to
it.
