Anti dog Lampost

The biter bit

Having a dog of my own, I do notice that certain lamposts are corroding quite badly. How about a rain-water collection system that feeds in to a small tank in the base of the lampost. A sensory pad is wrapped around the post and the acidic effluent of the aforesaid dog triggers a hefty squirt in the opposite direction, thus deterring the dog from continuing its business. The dog being a smart animal will remember this and take its leak in a more bio-friendly area in future.

       I need to repost one of my old ideas.

       Simplify: Collect rain water in a dish that encircles the base of the lamp post.   

       Problem solved. Dogs won't piss where there's drinkable water.   

       Later, thoughtfully: In many ways dogs are smarter than us.

       Oh they are not, unless you measure smartness in some unusually different way than I do.

       [bristolz], I started with the assertion that pissing into one or other's drinkable water is not smart, and worked backwards from there.   

       How do you measure smartness?

       these instant sensory pads are pretty amazing.

       You would say that, wouldn't you [dogzapper]?
