Monroe man invents leash that provides better control of your dog
Posted on 2/12/2018 3:00:00 AM.
A Monroe man has designed a product called Streamleash to help you have better control of your dog. Ian Blaylock says as a runner, if his dog quickly ran in one direction, he would lose his balance and control of his pet. He says Streamleash allows the leash to extend, but the user is in control of the cord length.
 
"It seemed to me it would be more practical to have an automatic break inside the leash, so you would manage the cord length for your dog," Blayock said.

Attorney General Jeff Landry filed a lawsuit against the Corps of Engineers alleging that the Corps expanded the Intracoastal Waterway in Vermillion Parish beyond the borders set in a 1920s agreement.
