Dog walking people often occupy most of the sidewalk without realizing it. It's as if they forget that a trip-line runs between them and their best friend. It need not be so. A blade, spring-loaded or not, is strapped to your lower leg or shoe. Rather than awkwardly navigating around a dog walker, a
leash, and/or a dog, you walk straight onwards. The blade contacts the the leash and then -snip- your way is clear and the dog is free to pursue whatever drew its interest away from its human in the first place.
Uh, dogs do drive.

||The dog is free to pursue the moving car with the other dog in it, and after it's untimely demise you are free to defend yourself against the bereaved owner's attacks using your blade, spring-loaded or not. What could possibly go wrong?
||You could just walk toward the leash and stop when
you are a couple inches away. They may a that
point come to their senses and make sure they are
on the same side of you as their dog. Alternately ,if
they keep walking and wrap the leash around your
legs, it's their fault, and you are perfectly justified
in cutting the leash.
||Hmmm... what would an Overt Dog Freer be?
||You could just carry a razor sharp cutlass when you go running. When you stop to saw thru a dog leash, the owner is unlikely to say much.
||There you go. Also, at a glance, " Discreet Dog Frier ".
